Turn Inspiration into Innovation through IPC APEX EXPO 2017 Educational Programs


Reading time ( words)

The latest technical research, industry best practices, trending topics, ground-breaking technologies and forward thinking innovations will take center stage throughout the IPC APEX EXPO 2017 technical conference and professional development courses, which will take place February 11–16 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California. Registration is now open here.

In keeping with the event’s theme, “Technology’s Turning Point,” the technical conference will feature approximately 90 technical papers detailing original research and innovations from industry experts around the world. Subject-matter experts will cover topics in the areas of board fabrication and design, electronics assembly and test.

Attendees wanting to learn more about best practices in design, lead-free technologies, materials, process improvement, solder joint reliability, PCB fabrication and materials, quality and reliability and more, can choose from 34 professional development courses that go beyond theory to address real-world problems and provide practical solutions that could be implemented immediately for real-world success.

“Our technical conference is at the heart of technology's turning point. The content, including the latest original research, will set the stage for the electronics industry innovation that will turn our industry toward the future,” said IPC Technical Conference Director Jasbir Bath. He adds, “Our wide-ranging educational program features a variety of learning opportunities where attendees can access the latest research and development in the industry and learn more about trending materials, applications and processes such as printed electronics. Attendees can take everything they learn back to their company and put it all to work.”

In addition, IPC APEX EXPO features many free activities, including technical BUZZ sessions, poster presentations, keynotes on “The Big Bang Theory - Making Science Cool (and Funny)” by actress, author and neuroscientist Mayim Bialik and “The Future of Drones” by Naval officer, military pilot and Duke University professor, Mary Cummings. The highly popular New Products Corridor and the new Printed Electronics Pavilion will be featured along with more than 450 of the industry’s top suppliers.

Access to the exhibit hall is free to those who register in advance, a savings of $40 on-site. Attendees who register by January 12, 2017, will save 20 percent off registration fees. In addition, attendees who register for the All-Access Package will save a significant percentage off a la carte options.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

12/02/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Normally, the holiday season is a slow(ish) news time, but this year just feels different. My opinion is that the technology industry banked up a whole bunch of innovations and new products during the pandemic disruptions, which are coming to market as quickly as possible. The November/December news is full of technology discussion, as my selections this week clearly demonstrate.

3D Electronic Devices With Additive Manufacturing

11/29/2022 | Shavi Spinzi, Nano Dimension
Imagine fabricating PCBs without the hassle of drilled vias and metal plating. Imagine PCBs with near-perfect registration. If we take it to the next stage, imagine drawing electronics in 3D space. There is a way to do all this with additively manufactured electronics (AME). We just need to start to think in 3D. This will allow us to abandon the 2D limitations that we have become so used to and expand our horizons so that we can climb to higher levels of performance. In this article, I will explore the two fundamental capabilities that are the cornerstones for drawing electronics in 3D space, which is where AME technology and 3D design capabilities converge.

Electronica 2022: Happy to Be Back in Munich

11/21/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
As we stepped out of the hotel into the drizzling rain, we were relieved that it wasn’t snow. Looking down the escalator into the U2 platform in Munich’s Hauptbahnhof central station early on the morning of Tuesday, Nov. 15 and observing the mass of humanity pushing and shoving to cram into trains to the exhibition centre, it appeared that a significant proportion of the international electronics industry had gathered to attend electronica 2022, co-located with SEMICON Europa and recognised as the world’s leading trade fair and conference for electronics.
