IPC Midwest Set to Open with the Big News in Nanotechnology

Jul 11, 2012

 As electronics manufacturers strive to keep costs of high density electronics in check, the potential of nanotechnology and its growing applications make it an extremely attractive technology worth examining. Bringing the big news of nanotechnology to light, Alan Rae, Ph.D., CEO of NanoMaterials Innovation Center, will be the Opening Session speaker at IPC Midwest Conference & Exhibition on August 22, 2012, at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center in Schaumburg, Ill.

Heavily funded by governments and industry worldwide for the last 10 years, research in nanotechnology has provided a wide range of materials and systems with a progressive range of applications for the electronics manufacturing industry. As Dr. Rae explains, in many cases these applications go unnoticed, but the performance increases obtained through the use of nanotechnology create significant opportunities and business advantages.

In his presentation “Nanotechnology and Electronics Assembly,” Dr. Rae will outline the current and potential applications in areas important to IPC members — primarily on the assembly of electronics and energy products using both novel printing processes and also in very conventional technology. In addition, he will discuss the evolving commercial structure that supports the translation of inventions to an increasing number of practical products.

The IPC Midwest Opening Session is a free event for all IPC Midwest registrants. A free exhibits-only registration to IPC Midwest provides free access to the opening session as well as the show’s exhibition featuring top industry suppliers, and a free afternoon reception to introduce IPC’s new president and CEO John W. Mitchell.

Special registration packages provide savings to a number of educational opportunities, including the technical conference, standards development meetings and IPC Executive Summit. In addition, individuals who register by July 20 can save 20 percent on registration fees.
