2013 Electronics Packaging Symposium
Technology Advances in Small Scale Systems and Microelectronics Packaging
at Binghamton University in Binghamton, NY
October 15 & 16, 2013
The Integrated Electronics Engineering Center (IEEC)
A New York State Center for Advanced Technology at Binghamton University
part of The New York State Center of Excellence in Small Scale Systems Integration and Packaging (S3iP)
In Conjunction With
GE Global Research Center and
Binghamton Chapter of the IEEE Components, Packaging and Manufacturing Technology Society (CPMT)
The symposium will focus on promising new technologies and developments
that are now impacting the electronics industry. Participants will receive overviews and research reports
on a range of emerging technologies in the areas of:
- Medical Electronics
- Thermal Challenges
- 3D Packaging
- Power Electronics
- High Temperature Electronics
- Flexible/Printed Electronics
Small scale microelectronics technologies are finding applications in an ever widening array of products. Among the most exciting developments are those in the micro and nanoscale area. Researchers working at or near the molecular level have recently made significant breakthroughs that will enable companies to create entirely new products, applications, and highly efficient manufacturing techniques. Applications for these technologies include: biomedical devices, diagnostic equipment, medical/surgical applications, telecommunications, aerospace, optical data storage and transmission, military observation, detection and communications, and a wide range of commercial applications. Many of these applications require products to perform in harsh environments where they must withstand thermal stresses, vibration and shock. As a result, there has been a great deal of research and innovation concerning robust design and the selection of novel materials. Some of the most spectacular developments in electronics packaging are now beginning to take shape.
The symposium will focus on providing the attendees with information about promising new technologies and developments that are now impacting the electronics industry. Participants will receive overviews and research reports on a range of emerging technologies including: National Trends, Medical Electronics, Thermal Challenges, 3D Packaging, Sensors/MEMs, Power Electronics, High Temperature Electronics, Miniaturization, and Flexible/Printed Electronics.
Who Should Attend
The program will be of particular value to: development engineers, technical managers, researchers, application specialists, and strategic planners from industry, universities and government laboratories. There will be a special segment of keynote presentations providing a broad overview of recent developments in several areas vital to small scale systems and microelectronic packaging.
Why You Should Attend
This symposium is strategically critical to you if you are involved in the development or manufacture of electronics products, applied research, or in charting the direction of your organization. This program will provide you with both basic knowledge and insight into many promising applications and product opportunities for small scale systems packaging technologies. This program also prepares one for follow-on technical programs that address more in-depth aspects of technologies being used in the design of small scale packaging technologies. For those in the research arena, this program will provide an update on the latest developments and provide additional opportunities for professional networking and collaboration.
This symposium provides an overview of several emerging technologies that represent business and product opportunities that will drive many new technology applications. The ten major segments of this symposium provide both a technical overview of selected technologies and also new applications that have been developed. The sessions provide technical briefings on several exciting new small scale packaging technologies. Armed with this knowledge, participants will be able to examine their own products and operations to see where selected technologies can be integrated. They will also be able to participate in follow-on technical vitality lectures which will be available via Watson School distance learning programs. Follow-on symposia will address engineering and design issues for various application areas to enable companies to apply new technologies to their own products. Upon completion of this program, the participant will have gained:
- An understanding of the theory and principles of several small scale technologies
- An understanding of trends and market potentials
- An introduction to the range of applications for these new technologies
- Preparation to examine selected technologies in greater detail
- The ability to look for emerging technology application opportunities within their
- respective job duties
