International Conference for Electronics Enabling Technologies 2019 +
Markham , ON Canada
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.

Webinar: Lead-Free Selective Soldering, Design, Quality Control & Practical Defect Solutions +
Monday 17th June @ 2:30pm - 4:00pm GMT (9:30am - 11:00am US Eastern Time)
Presenter: Bob Willis, SMTA Europe
For many organisations through hole components will remain a reality for many years. More and more surface mount components are used in design, through hole is in decline, however the reality is connectors, transformers, switches, LCD displays and electrolytic capacitors are still necessary in many products. So what is the most reliable and cost effective solution to through hole soldering in a lead-free environment? Selective soldering has become more popular in the last few years for small and large companies alike. Selective wave and point soldering are both options but what are the realities with lead-free and high temperature solder alloys.
- Why use selective soldering
- PCB design rules for selective soldering
- Flux requirements for selective soldering
- Compatibility of solder masks and lead-free solder
- Setting up lead-free profiles, you must profile a selective process!!!
- Solder alloy choices
- Copper dissolution with selective
- Soldering defects on selective – Causes and Cures
In preparation for the event and to ensure you are equipped to get maximum benefit from the event, read our Webinar Guide.
The webinar will run for between 60-90min with question and answer session. The webinars are limited to 100 delegates/companies. A copy of each of the slides presented will be provided after the webinar.

Intermountain (ID, UT) Chapter: SMTA Intermountain Capter Utah Golf Tournament +
Symposium on Counterfeit Parts and Materials 2019 +
College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center
College Park , MD
2019 call for abstracts and registration is now open. The program will be finalized in Spring 2019.
Dr. Michael Azarian, CALCE, speaks during the panel discussion 'How is AS6171 Being Flowed Down? Challenges with AS671 Accreditation--Can it Handle Obsolete Part?' at the 2018 Symposium.
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.
