SMTA and CALCE Announce New LED Assembly, Reliability, and Test Symposium

Mar 03, 2015

The SMTA and CALCE are pleased to announce the new LED Assembly, Reliability, and Test (A.R.T.) Symposium will take place November 17 - 19, 2015 at the Crowne Plaza Midtown in Atlanta, GA.

The LED A.R.T. Symposium will provide attendees with information to bridge the gap between the semiconductor physics and the architectural design level issues in LED supply chain. The design, manufacturing, reliability assessment, testing and inspection of LEDs and LED lighting products are not at the same level of development and interest. The LED A.R.T. Symposium is the forum for the industry to explore the problems faced and offer solutions.

If you would like to present at this conference, please submit a 200-300 word abstract by June 5, 2015. Please include a title, author name, and contact information with your abstract.

The topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Failure mechanisms
  • Packaging materials - encapsulation, lenses
  • Testing
  • Reliability
  • Luminaire – control board
  • Assembly and packaging process
  • Semiconductor level: new materials and techniques used to make LEDs.
  • Luminaire level: assembly and inspection of LEDs mounted onto substrates.
  • User level: Policies and usage improvements/tradeoffs.
  • Architecture: lighting designers
  • Thermal management issues during integration
  • Automotive applications
  • IESNA Standards

For more information on the conference, exhibition or sponsorship opportunities, please contact Patti Coles at 952-920-7682 or to patti@smta.org.
