Datest, a leading provider of advanced, efficient and mission-critical in-circuit testing, test engineering and X-ray inspection solutions for more than three decades, today announced that its President Robert Boguski will Chair Session TI Keynote & TI3 during SMTA International. The session, entitled, “The Roadmap and the Reaction: Challenges and Responses in Advanced Assembly Technology,” is scheduled to take place Monday, Sept. 18, 2017 from 12:30 – 3 p.m. in Room 48. Speakers for the session include keynote speaker, Bill Bader from iNEMI, John Timmerman, Ph.D. from Henkel and Luis Carlos Montemayor from Dow Corning Corporation.

It is no secret that technology drives assembly innovation. Relentless demands for product miniaturization; durability; performance; reduced energy consumption and carbon footprints; together with demands for packaging design elegance, such as visual attractiveness and cost competitiveness, supply the impetus for change. Assembly processes struggle to keep pace with this never-ending evolution.

This session will address the general as well as the particular – a call and two responses –illustrating the impending changes that we as an industry confront. The keynote presentation will highlight technical challenges anticipated over the next decade, while the other two speakers will address specific industry responses to those challenges in the area of adhesive technology.

Boguski is a 1981 graduate of the University of San Francisco, with a BA in economics. He has worked in the electronics packaging and interconnect manufacturing business, primarily in management positions, since 1975.
