IPC Invites Member-Company Executives to Help Build 'Pulse-of-the-Industry' Data Service


Reading time ( words)

IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries has announced plans to develop a new statistical service designed to give members timely insight on the state of the electronics industry. IPC member-company executives are invited to help build this program by participating in an organizational meeting at IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego on Thursday, February16.                                                                                                                                            

With the working title “Pulse of the Industry,” the new service will be a survey-based statistical program for the top executives of IPC-member companies in all manufacturing segments of the industry worldwide. The confidential surveys will collect data on key business measurements and activities that are important indicators of the health of the industry, both nationally and internationally. The resulting data will be available at no cost to the program’s participants. Additional expert analysis and insights will be available by subscription in a separate report.

“This is a great opportunity for IPC-member executives to get in on the ground floor and help shape this new program to meet their needs” said Sharon Starr, IPC director of market research. “We’re looking forward to working with company leaders on this exciting new initiative.”

The organizational meeting is open to all interested executives of IPC-member companies. It will be held at the San Diego Convention Center on February 16 from 1:00 to 2:00 pm. For more information or to indicate interest in this meeting, IPC members should contact Starr at SharonStarr@ipc.org or +1 847-597-2817 by Friday, February 10.

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.
