26 SMT007 MAGAZINE I MARCH 2024 Session 2: EV Electronics/E-mobility From 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., the topic is "EV Electronics: Design, Manufacturing, and Reli- ability Challenges." It will include two topi- cal sessions selected by a Technical Program Committee of EV industry experts chaired by Dr. Stanton Rak. e first session, "PCBA Reliability and Test for EV Applications," will be moderated by Lenora Clark, director of autonomous driv- ing and safety technology at MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions. Topics will include high- voltage test and reliability, solder and Ag-sinter- ing material reliability, high-voltage PCB failure mechanisms, and testing protection materials . Dr. Udo Welzel, senior expert at Robert Bosch GmbH, will moderate the second top- ical session, "EV Power Electronics Design and Manufacturability." Speakers represent- ing companies such as Semikron Danfoss, Robert Bosch, Zestron, Indium Corporation, MiroTek, and TRUMPF will deliver brief tech- nical presentations followed by a panel dis- cussion with audience participation. Top- ics include high current and high voltage con- nections with PCB, laser welding for busbars, power electronics, and more. e e-mobility session is supported by IPC's e-Mobility Qual- ity & Reliability Advisory Council, and closely aligns with the council's mission to help deliver e-mobility quality, reliability and safety while protecting the drive for innovation. "On behalf of the TPC, I invite you to attend ursday's Special Sessions, built for confer- ence attendees to learn from and network with industry leaders," Kelly says. "Amazing things are happening in electronic packaging and eMobility applications. We are delighted to bring you strong, high-quality technical insights shaping the future of electronics man- ufacturing." Plan your travel accordingly to attend these exciting ursday morning sessions. Flexible registration options allow attendees to attend these ursday sessions by selecting the option that works best with their schedules: ese Special Sessions will be included in the follow- ing registration packages: "All-Access," "World Convention," "Committee Meetings Plus Con- ference," and the "Full Technical Conference." Other attendees may wish to register for one or both Special Sessions using the "Technical Conference Single Session Pass" option. SMT007 Julia Gumminger is the manager of professional development and events for IPC. A surface mount technology (SMT) engineer gen- erally assists in the production line of surface mount technologies, which involve attaching electronic materials to printed circuit boards. The engineer will review and assess the quality of the finished products. SMT engineers must be able to operate Surface Mount Technology advanced placement machines. The person in this role must change out feeders and identify components per work instructions. They will troubleshoot and correct problems. An SMT engineer also must be capable to identify dif- ferent electronic component types, including value and polarity, be able to use a microscope. Learn more. What Does an SMT Engineer Do?
