SMTA International Harsh Environments Symposium Keynote Speaker Announced

Aug 17, 2016

SMTA announced the keynote speaker for the 2016 Harsh Environments Symposium, part of the SMTA International technical conference September 25 - 29, 2016 in Rosemont, Illinois.

Harsh Environment Symposium Keynote Lunch

During the Harsh Environment Symposium Keynote Lunch, Dwight Howard at Delphi, will present “Advances in Autonomous Driving and V2X Technologies.” Dwight will highlight several key aspects of these advancements, including, the complex system elements, integration and cognitive computing required for these systems to achieve operational capability; the current state of the supporting subsystems and overall vehicle systems required to make these capabilities possible; a few of the key lessons-learned from a ground-breaking, first-ever, trans-USA drive experiment conducted in 2015; and finally, an outlook of the practical deployment of these advances into daily usage.

This presentation discusses a novel approach to the definition of requirements for package certifications. The developed methodology challenges the existing industry practices that are a basis of the industry certification standards. This new methodology leverages the knowledge of use conditions and fundamental physics, and couples it with advanced computational mechanics modeling. The special focus is on the essential role of the physics based damage metrics in scaling from use condition to test conditions and in design for reliability. This Knowledge-based Qualification methodology is discussed relative to Standards-Based Qualifications showing that Knowledge-Based Qualification provides a superior technical framework for enabling future packaging technologies and customer designs. 

The Harsh Environments Symposium at SMTA International will feature new research from companies and institutions working with defense, aerospace, oil, and gas industries to produce more reliable products that can withstand harsh environmental conditions. Presentations are scheduled from Air Force Research Laboratory, Alpha Assembly Solutions, Auburn University, Delphi, Electrolube, Freescale Semiconductor, Indium Corporation, Iowa State University, NXP Semiconductors, Inc., Raytheon, and Xilinx.
