KIC will hold a Defect Solution Clinic Booth #2428 at the upcoming IPC APEX Expo, scheduled to take place February 28-March 1, 2012 at the San Diego Convention Center in California. Dr. S. Manian Ramkumar, Ph.D. will be in the KIC booth on Tuesday, February 28th and Wednesday, February 29th from 2-4 p.m.

Attendees are invited to stop by the KIC booth with thermal defect and process issues for a free consultation with Dr. Ramkumar.  “Identifying the true root cause when addressing process problems is critical to achieving high yields. Many times, in my experience, it is the lack of fundamental understanding that becomes a major roadblock when solving these problems. I look forward to meeting and discussing process issues with APEX attendees,” commented Dr. Ramkumar.

Dr. Ramkumar is the Director of the Center for Electronics Manufacturing and Assembly at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Additionally, he is a Professor of Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering Technology/Packaging Science and Program Chair.
