The 18th Annual Pan Pacific Microelectronics Symposium that took place January 22-24, 2013, at the Makena Beach and Golf Resort in Maui, Hawaii was well received by attendees from North America, Asia, and Europe. Speakers at the Pan Pacific Symposium promoted international technical exchange and joined in a diverse forum for extensive networking among microelectronics professionals from around the world.
As rated by the attendees, the Best Presentation Award went to Rolf Aschenbrenner, Ph.D., Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration, for his paper titled, “Panel Level Packaging - A Manufacturing Solution for Cost Effective Systems.”
Technical papers from all sessions are currently featured in the 2013 Pan Pacific Symposium Proceedings available in the SMTA Bookstore.
Next year the symposium will be held February 11-13, 2014 at the Hapuna Beach Prince Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii. The call for papers will be posted on www.smta.org/panpac in early March.
