LED Assembly, Reliability & Testing Symposium
The bridge between research and development
Technical Symposium: November 17-18 Expo: November 17-18 Workshop: November 19 Crown Plaza Midtown/Atlanta, GA
Light emitting diodes (LEDs) is increasingly the technology of choice in lighting and display applications. LEDs offer design flexibility, from zero-dimensional (dot-scale lighting) to three-dimensional lighting (color dimming using combination with different colors). LEDs have small exterior outline dimensions while offering high-energy efficiency that results in lower power consumption. With appropriate thermal management, LEDs can have longer lifespans than conventional lighting sources. LEDs are also eco-friendly products with less UV radiation and no mercury.
LEDs had a rapid progression from research laboratories and academic institutions to store shelves and light sockets. This aggressive adoption curve has made LEDs ubiquitous across multiple applications, including automotive, industrial, sports, and entertainment lighting systems. However, the main challenge to an even wider deployment platform for LEDs is the disconnect between the potential performance observed in laboratories and the real performance observed in the field.
The LED Assembly, Reliability & Testing (A.R.T.) Symposium provides you 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.

Presenter: Makarand "Chips" Chipalkatti, Ph.D., Dr. Chips Consulting
Over a decade and a half ago, when LED lighting was a subject of debate and considerable disbelief, some had predicted a disruptive change in the lighting industry of the sort that happens once in a generation. This disruption is now real, and the lighting industry is clearly undergoing tectonic change in rapid fire mode. Every major incumbent manufacturer is undergoing constant reorganization, while new start-ups emerge claiming a place in the new lighting industry. Yet, LED lighting has not generated the sort of profits expected despite significant growth. Global supply chains and fierce competition by hundreds of new players has created quite a challenge. Yet, there is great opportunity in this industry expected to be $21B by 2018 according to a recent report. Where do those opportunities lie and where are the new growth areas for industry players in the lighting, semiconductor, and electronics industry? This talk will cover some of the transformation process and point to the areas of current and future change. Future growth corridors that are now visible will also be discussed.

Presenter: Martine Simard-Normandin, MuAnalysis
Light emitting diodes, LEDs, have evolved tremendously in the last few years. They are no longer relegated to such roles as low output power indicator lights on panels, or seasonal decorative light strings. Just as electronics has infiltrated every aspect of our lives, a LED invasion is aggressively underfoot. Yet the technology behind these devices is poorly understood, often leading to avoidable early failures. In this webinar we will look at every aspect of LED technology. First we will explore the semiconductor devices themselves and the structures within that allow them to be efficient emitters. Next we will focus on high brightness LEDs and review their packaging and assembly challenges. Then we will investigate LEDs in luminaires: the phosphor materials of the LED devices, LED driving circuits, dimming issues. Finally, the long term reliability issues and failure mechanisms of LED devices will be reviewed.
Symposium on Counterfeit Parts and Materials 2016
Technical Symposium: June 28-30, 2016 Expo: June 28-29, 2016 Workshops: June 30, 2016 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 28-29 at the College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center. The Workshops will be held June 30 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.
