IPC Conference on Printed Electronics: An Early-stage Jump into a Growth Market

Nov 06, 2010

BANNOCKBURN, IL - Industry estimates project that by the end of 2010, printed electronics will be 35 percent of a $1.92 billion printed, thin film and organic electronics market. While the development of printed electronics is in the early stages, it is evident that it has the potential to change the electronics industry.

On January 18–19, 2011, the IPC Conference on Printed Electronics: What Does It Mean for the Printed Circuit Board Industry? in Irvine, Calif., will provide board manufacturers and their suppliers with information on today’s opportunities and how to take advantage of the impending change. Attendees will also have an opportunity to participate in the development of the first printed electronics standard for the PCB industry.

Kicking off the two-day event, Matt Timm, president of Soligie, will provide the keynote address taking a look at all the opportunities in printed electronics. Later in the day, John Andresakis, vice president of strategic technology, Oak Mitsui, will discuss what those opportunities mean for the PCB industry. Other presentations include a look into the needs of end users from various applications, including aerospace and military; manufacturing printed electronic devices; and where printed electronics intersects with PCB assembly. A panel of representatives from Taiyo America, Conductive Inkjet Technologies, and AccentiV will present on the latest advancements in materials. In addition, representatives from Endicott Interconnect Technologies and DDi will review what they are currently doing in terms of printed electronics.

On day two, Randall Sherman, president of New Venture Research Corp., will answer the all-important question, will printed electronics replace the printed circuit board? His presentation will be followed by a review of the advancements in R&D. After the conference, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a printed electronics standard meeting.

In addition to the presentations, table-top exhibits from industry suppliers will provide attendees with valuable information.

The fee to attend the IPC Conference on Printed Electronics is $550 for IPC members and $650 for nonmembers. The fee includes event participation, two lunches and a networking reception.
