    PannellEnabling Smart & Connected Devices Via IoT
    Tom Pannell, Sr. Director of Marketing, Silicon Labs

    The Internet of Things (IoT) is viewed by many as the next big thing. Connecting every day “things” in our homes, offices, cars, factories, and cities to the Internet will improve our lives and transform industries. The IoT market could exceed 70 billion devices by 2025, but several obstacles remain in achieving the market’s full potential. Tom Pannell, Senior Director of IoT Marketing at Silicon Labs, will explore what it will take to accelerate the promise of IoT. The presentation will consider the business and engineering challenges of adding connectivity to electronic devices, including cost, ease of use, energy efficiency, interoperability, future extensibility, and security. Addressing these challenges will unleash the limitless possibilities of a more connected world.

    Ortman Engineering for Humankind - Bold Predictions for 2018 & Beyond
    Tom Ortman, President & CEO, Concurrent Design

    Mr. Ortman is president of Concurrent Design, a high technology engineering firm, with a focus on emerging technologies which benefit society including: electronics, semiconductors, clean tech, and medical devices. Concurrent Design serves as a bridge from the science in the R&D lab, through engineering development, and out through manufacturing to the mass commercialization of these technologies. It is the nature of this business to see very early stage technologies, and hopefully to help nurture and incubate them. One of Mr. Ortman’s pleasures is the contemplative aspect of exploring technology ideas to their natural conclusion. Based upon the work at Concurrent Design, Mr. Ortman will share his thoughts on some bold ideas to benefit humankind as we look into the near future.

    LuncefordAustin’s MEMS & Sensors Industry - Days of Disruption, Market Creation, and Industry Growth
    Brent Lunceford, President, Memstronics


    Austin’s MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) & Sensors industry started with joint ventures between the Microelectronics and Computer Technology Corporation (known as MCC), IBM, and Raytheon in the late 1990s as a response to the rapidly burgeoning field of ultra-miniature 3D electronics technology. Other companies and universities soon became involved, including Cypress Semiconductor, Texas Instruments, 3M, Kodak, Rockwell, Lockheed Martin, Harris Corporation, Hughes Research Labs, UCLA, UC Berkeley, and the University of Texas at Austin. In 2000, MCC established Austin’s first MEMS company, and today, the Central Texas region benefits from numerous companies that make up the regional industry. MEMS & Sensors are key enabling technologies for products such as smart phones, industrial automation systems, IoT systems, autonomous vehicles, wearable electronics, drones, robotics, oil and gas telemetry, and biomedical and health informatics products. This presentation will cover the history of Austin’s strategic innovation in MEMS, its market creation, its growth across broad industries, and future opportunities for these technologies.

    AndresSolder Joint Quality and High Reliability Solder Alloys for Automotive and Critical High Reliability Assemblies
    Frank Andres, Customer Tech Support Mgr, Alpha Assembly


    Highly reliable soldering alloys are becoming increasingly important to multiple segments of the electronics industry including automotive, medical, and military. Exactly what constitutes a highly reliable alloy is dependent on the environment the finished assembly will perform in. While the alloy is important, understanding its interaction with the soldering process is critical to making sure a quality solder joint is formed. This presentation will discuss the role of alloy, flux, metallization, and intermetallic formation. Additionally, it will look at the requirements in the industry for assemblies operating in environments outside the SAC305 range.

    Within the electronics industry we have seen the drivers of technology move from military and industrial electronics to mobile devices. Looking to the future there are a few areas that are discussed with respect to rapid growth in the electronics area: internet of things (IoT), wearable devices, and AR/VR. With over 1 Billion dollars invested in this technology in 2016 (DigiCapital) and the number of devices rising to over 100 million units by 2020 (Statista). These devices pose some unique challenges with respect to not only the optical requirements, but the electronics to drive these systems. In this presentation we will review the current devices and players in the market, explore the current technology employed to build these devices, and discuss the challenges to enable future technologies in this exciting area.

    Suen X-Ray Inspections for PCBA - Challenges and New Developments
    Speaker: Elbert Suen, Flex
    X-ray inspection systems are key tools for quality control, yield enhancement, and failure analysis of advanced printed circuits board assemblies (PCBA). The electronics industry has witnessed significant improvements in the X-ray inspection capabilities (AXI, 2DX, 3D CT, Large Board CT) during the last twenty years. These advancements have aided in the development of new high performance packages and PCBA processes. In many cases, X-Ray inspection is the only non-destructive technique to inspect optically hidden components and solder joints such as BGA, POP, QFN, flip chips, through holes, etc. Automated X-Ray inspection (AXI) has been available since 1999 at our manufacturing sites, and plays very important role to assure high quality SMT process. Along the way, manual X-ray systems (2DX and 3D CT) have been providing invaluable testing capabilities for verifying the AXI results, fine tuning the AXI parameters, process development, and X-ray inspection that is out of the scope of the AXI equipment.

    Through the years these capabilities have been significantly improved and best practices have been developed on how to jointly use the AXI, 2DX(MXI), and 3D CT X-ray equipment to achieve best possible testing results and speed. In this paper, we will summarise the extensive experience we have accumulated while working on real problems together with our customers, X-ray inspection vendors and R&D teams. These projects include BGA HIP (head in pillow), solder charge connector, Package on Package, package 03015. In addition, we will discuss how to optimize test coverage and eliminate defect escapes during PCBA testing. These studies have been performed using variety of X-ray inspection systems at several production sites and lasted several years.

    Gordon Best Practices for Responsible, Efficient Technologies when Outsourcing Design and Manufacturing
    Speaker: Pamela J. Gordon, Antea Group
    When OEMs outsource product design and manufacturing, many have experienced reduced visibility to environmental compliance, slippage in Eco-Design progress, and compromises in using advanced efficient technologies. It doesn’t have to be this way. By deploying best practices and choosing suppliers well, OEMs can realize greater visibility to product compliance, higher levels of Eco-Design, and adoption of more efficient technologies. Pamela J. Gordon is a 26-year member of the SMTA and has objectively chronicled electronics outsourcing practices since 1984. In this presentation, she will lend her insights on maximizing products’ responsibility, innovation, and efficiency when outsourcing, drawing upon her experience training >1,000 electronic-product designers in meeting environmental regulations, exceeding compliance through Eco-Design, and assessing the latest resource-efficient technologies. OEM participants will gain actionable insights on how to best leverage their outsourcing suppliers, and outsourcing suppliers will have a roadmap for being the supplier of choice for providing OEMs with responsible and advanced products.
