A Successful Pan Pacific Symposium 2015

The 20th Annual Pan Pacific Microelectronics Symposium that took place February 2-5, 2015, at the Sheraton Kauai Resort on Kauai, Hawaii was well received by attendees from North America, Asia, and Europe. Over fifty papers were presented to attendees from fourteen countries. Speakers at the Pan Pacific Symposium promoted international technical exchange and joined in a diverse forum for extensive networking among microelectronics professionals from around the world.

As selected by the Technical Committee, the Best Paper Award went to Binghamton University for their paper titled "Intermetallics Issues and Challenges in 2.5/3D Assembly Microjoints" presented by Peter Borgesen, Ph.D.

Technical papers from all sessions are featured in the 2015 Pan Pacific Symposium Proceedings available in the SMTA Bookstore.

"2015 marked the 20th anniversary of the Pan Pacific Microelectronics Symposium, one of the longest running events sponsored by the SMTA," noted steering committee chair Charles E. Bauer, Ph.D., TechLead Corporation.

Next year the symposium will be held January 25-28, 2016 at the Hapuna Beach Prince Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii. For more information on the Pan Pacific Microelectronics Symposium, contact Tanya Martin at 952-920-7682 or
