International Conference on Soldering & Reliability 2017

The International Conference on Soldering and Reliability (ICSR) is a highly technical three-day event in Toronto, ON, Canada where soldering and reliability professionals come together to share their knowledge and vision for addressing challenges related to the assembly and reliability of electronics products such as finer powders in solder paste, heat dissipation, and novel components and technologies.

SMTA-IPC High Reliability Cleaning and Conformal Coating Conference

Organized by SMTA and IPC

October 25-27,2016
Hyatt Rosemont

"How clean is clean?" is more challenging to answer as conductors and circuit traces become narrower. What is acceptably clean for one industry segment may be unacceptable in others.

Brought to you by IPC and SMTA, the High-Reliability Cleaning and Conformal Coating Conference will cover technological developments in all areas of cleaning and coating applied to electronics assemblies.

The event will include a technical conference, two half-day tutorials, networking activities and tabletop exhibits. Tutorials will provide practical information on materials, equipment and methodologies at the basic-to-intermediate levels. The technical conference will feature advanced-level presentations from subject-matter experts, emphasizing case studies of real-world problems along with solutions.

Advance online registration is now closed. Please register onsite.

LED Assembly, Reliability & Testing Symposium 2016

CALCE and SMTA are pleased to announce the program for the LED Assembly, Reliability & Testing Symposium at the Crowne Plaza Midtown, Atlanta, GA from November 29 to December 1, 2016.

The LED Assembly, Reliability & Testing (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.

    Symposium on Counterfeit Parts and Materials 2017

    2017 dates announced!

    Technical Symposium: June 27-29, 2017
    Expo: June 27-28, 2017
    Workshops: June 29, 2017

    University of Maryland, College Park, MD

    SMTA and CALCE @ University of Maryland are pleased to announce the east coast venue for the Symposium on Counterfeit Parts and Materials. The program will be held June 27-28 at the College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center. The Workshops will be held June 29 at the University of Maryland. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from and share your insights with government, industry and academia who are addressing the counterfeit problem.

    Changes in electronic supply chain had been fast and furious in the last decades and its impact on the practices of companies is still evolving. It is well understood that, the scourge of counterfeit electronic parts is related to the changes in supply chain but it is only one of the many impacts. This symposium will provide a forum to cover all aspects of changes in the electronic parts supply chain on how an organization performs part selection and management through whole life cycle of the parts.

    Going beyond anecdotes and examples of counterfeit parts, this symposium focuses on the solutions that are available and are under development by all sectors of the industry.

    The symposium is organized by SMTA in conjunction with Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering (CALCE) at the University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA. This symposium will be valuable to quality and reliability manager, supply chain managers, brand protection specialists, inspectors, marketing and procurement policy makers, contracts and legal management, security specialists and government agencies. Our focus is to provide relevant information to the professionals that can be used for solving problems today while planning for a different business and technology environment in the future.
