SMTA Announces AIMS Harsh Environments Symposium Included With SMTA International Conference Fee

Jul 03, 2010

Minneapolis, MN - The SMTA announced that the AIMS Harsh Environments Symposium, taking place on October 25, 2010 in conjunction with SMTA International in Orlando, FL, will be included with the SMTA International technical conference registration. This is the first year that SMTAI registrants will be able to attend the Harsh Environments Symposium at no additional cost.

The AIMS Harsh Environments Symposium addresses the concerns related to harsh environment electronics and the challenges within the electronics community, with an added emphasis on military and space. 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.

Session topics include Pb-Free Technology Insertion, Component Packaging Challenges in Harsh Environments, Organic Materials Adapted for Harsh Environments, and Interconnection Reliability. Papers will be presented by Raytheon, GE Aviation, IBM, and Harris Corporation among others. The Harsh Environments Keynote Lunch will feature Irene Sterian, Celestica Inc., presenting "The Tech in Green Tech."

Details of the AIMS 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.
