Harsh Environments Symposium Expands at SMTA International

Jul 10, 2013

The SMTA announced that the Harsh Environments Symposium will be extended to a day and a half symposium from Monday, October 14 until Tuesday, October 15, 2013 at SMTA International in Fort Worth, Texas.  The Harsh Environments Symposium addresses the concerns related to harsh environment electronics and the challenges within the electronics community. It is intended to bring together the needs of "end-users" with the capabilities of the research community and the industrial supply base. Specifically, the Symposium addresses the challenges of meeting expanding temperature ranges (-55C to +150C/+200C) with increased vibration, higher package density and longer reliability. Next generation requirements are explored from the system level and potential supply-based solutions are presented.

Session topics include Thermal Issues with Harsh Environment Electronics, Modeling and Predictions in Harsh Operational Environments, Power Electronics Packaging, Lead-Free for High Reliability Applications, Reliability of Pb-Free Electronic Products Subjected to Harsh Field Conditions, and Manufacturing for Harsh Environments.  Papers will be presented by speakers from Alcatel-Lucent, Auburn University, Cisco Systems, Inc., Harris Corporation, Indium Corporation, Intel, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and University of Rostock among others. 

Details of the Harsh Environments Symposium can be found at http://www.smta.org/smtai/symposium.cfm#he or contact SMTA administrator JoAnn Stromberg: 952-920-7682 or joann@smta.org.


The SMTA membership is an international network of professionals who build skills, share practical experience and develop solutions in electronic assembly technologies, including microsystems, emerging technologies, and related business operations.
