IPC High Reliability Forum Call for Participation — Deadline Extended to 2/21/20!

Join us for High Reliability Forum as a presenter or instructor and share your expertise in electronics with high reliability requirements.

IPC and ANSYS invite engineers, researchers, academics, technical experts and industry leaders to submit abstracts for High Reliability Forum to be held May 12-14, 2020 in Baltimore, MD.

With a focus on electronics subjected to harsh use environments, we are seeking speakers to discuss technology drivers leading industry advancements today.

Additional topics include:

  • Connector failure modes and reliability
  • Design and simulation approaches to avoid EMI/EMC and ESD/EOS failures
  • Design for reliability
  • Design rules for spacing and staggered vias
  • Device level reliability, including transistor aging and wear-out
  • Failure modes effects analysis (FMEA)
  • Fatigue behavior and reliability testing for solder joints using next gen solder alloys
  • Harsh environment reliability and testing
  • HDI reliability
  • Materials compatibility
  • Vibration and shock test methods for predicting reliability
  • Microvia concerns and test methods
  • Microvia reliability and design rules
  • 3D Package level reliability
  • Reliability assurance and prediction workflows
  • Robustness of interposers and new first level connection methodologies
  • Solder fatigue and the role of underfill, mirroring, and housing
  • System-level effects on solder joint reliability
  • PCBA surface reliability (including cleaning, testing and coating strategies)
  • Thermal mitigation
  • Thermal stress test methods
  • Use of simulation in the design process

Abstracts summarizing original and previously unpublished work must be submitted for consideration to present. Presentations should be non-commercial and describe significant results from experiments, emphasize new techniques, discuss trends of interest and contain technical and/or appropriate test results.

The time to plan your participation is now! Presenting at High Reliability Forum provides visibility for you and your organization.

Submit your abstract by February 21, 2020 by emailing Brook Sandy-Smith, IPC technical conference program manager.
