Registrants for the live webcast can make comments and ask questions. A recording of all the presentations will also be available. Keynote speakers will present on the findings of the Solder Technology Roadmap 2013 and discuss the implications for the electronics industry following the EC recasts of the RoHS and WEEE Directives.

“This event will provide the opportunity to learn about the latest research, hear about key developments and discover what the future holds for the electronics industry,” said Dr. Jeremy Pearce, ITRI Technology Team Leader. “By watching this event through the live webcast, it will give the tools to meet whatever soldering challenges a company is facing today and in the future.”

Eastern-US: China’s New Competitor?

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
