South East Asia Technical Training Conference on Electronics Assembly Technologies 2018

Co-located with Semicon Southeast Asia

The South East Asia Technical Conference on Electronics Assembly is a highly technical three-day event that is focused on today's most important and timely issues.

The drive for smaller, more functional consumer electronics along with the need for highly reliable electronics applications have kept the material, process and quality engineers busy planning for the future. These drive the many challenges that our industry faces today. We encourage our colleagues in Malaysia to come together to share their knowledge and their vision for addressing these challenges.

The conference is "claimable from HRDF under SBL scheme."

  • Electronics in Harsh Environments Conference

    Building on the successful Contamination, Cleaning and Coating Conference in 2017, SMTA Europe will host the Electronics in Harsh Environments Conference on 24-26 April 2018 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The conference will focus on building reliable electronics used in power electronics and harsh environments.

    Thermal, power and signal integrity requirements can present challenges when on devices that operate within harsh environments. Component integration, paired with a growing complexity of the package architectures, larger form factors and higher interconnection densities increase the risk of in-field failures. Over powering or over heating of a device can have serious consequences including internal package failure, down-stream device errors and second level interconnect solder joint failures. Soldering residues are more problematic, and if not understood, can result in both intermittent and complete device failure.

    This conference tackles the challenges and best practices for building reliable electronic devices that will perform to design standards when used in harsh environments. Specific topics include building reliable high density assemblies, power electronics, electric hybrids, product assembly challenges, cleaning, coating, process control, and monitoring and tracking production hardware. Challenging areas such as high temperature soldering, solder material advances, and new standards will be presented.

    Symposium on Counterfeit Parts and Materials 2018

    Thank you for attending the 2017 Symposium!

    2018 dates announced!

    Technical Symposium: June 26-28, 2018
    Expo: June 26-27, 2018
    Workshops: June 28, 2018

    University of Maryland, College Park, MD



    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 is a valuable resource for quality and reliability managers, 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.






    International Conference for Electronics Enabling Technologies 2018

    The International Conference for Electronics Enabling Technologies (ICEET), formerly ICSR, is a highly technical three-day event in Toronto, ON, Canada.

    Electronics products are becoming ubiquitous in many aspects of modern life, including smart devices, internet of everything, wearables and self-driving vehicles, as well as the more established (but still growing areas) of communications, entertainment, medical devices, lighting, automotive, avionics and computing. The growth is largely driven by the continued increase in density of integrated circuits, the applications that utilize the greater functionality, and by steadily decreasing power consumption and cost.

    The forerunner conference of ICEET, the International Conference for Solder and Reliability (ICSR), grew to be a premier technical conference for all aspects of solders, metallurgy and the solder interconnect process, through the period of conversion to lead-free solder, driven by RoHS and WEEE. The ICEET Technical Committee intends to continue the tradition of technical excellence, and broaden the scope to the wider enabling technologies, including design for assembly, test and reliability (DfX), packaging, assembly challenges for high density PCBs and components, potting and other methods to achieve high reliability in aggressive environments.

    Registrations are being taken through the SMTA Online Registration System.

  • SMTA-IPC High Reliability Cleaning and Conformal Coating Conference

    Organized by SMTA and IPC

    November 13-15, 2018
    Hyatt Rosemont
    Rosemont,IL


    "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.

    More details will be posted here in 2018... check back soon!






    Cancellation Policy: Registration fees will be refunded (less a $75 processing fee) if written notice is postmarked two weeks prior to the event date. Cancellations received within two weeks prior to event date will not be refunded to cover costs incurred.
