The Electronics in Harsh Environments Conference (24-26 April), sponsored by SMTA Europe, tackles the challenges and best practices for building reliable electronic devices that will perform to design standards when used in harsh environments (elevated operating temperatures, high humidity, vibration and more).
iNEMI is co-hosting the final session of the conference (26 April), which will focus specifically on automotive electronics. This session includes an interactive discussion with the following panel of experts:
Dr. Lothar Henneken, Robert Bosch GmbH
Craig Hillman, DfR
Brook Sandy-Smith, Indium
The three-day conference will also cover topics such as reliable high-density assemblies, power electronics, electric hybrids, product assembly challenges, cleaning, coating, process control, and monitoring and tracking production hardware. Challenging areas such as high-temperature soldering, solder material advances, and new standards will also be addressed.
