Since 1988 the Surface Mount & Circuit Board Association (SMCBA) has conducted Australia’s only conference dedicated to electronics design and manufacture. The 2021 conference is again being held in conjunction with ElectroneX at the Rydges Parramatta.

CONFERENCE:

TUESDAY APRIL 5 and WEDNESDAY APRIL 6

Registration desk open from 7:00am for 8:00am start.

Workshops and presentations will be held over two days including, but not limited to the following.  Keep watch for more details. 

Dongkai Shangguan - IEEE Fellow, live strream from the USA - is giving our Keynote address

  • "Key Topics in Electronics Manufacturing: From Semiconductor Packaging to System Assembly"

Matt Wild – General Manager at Future Electronics Australia and New Zealand – is presenting “Supply Chain Challenges and Strategies”, a discussion about the current issues and their causes with their resulting change in supply trends and costs, with a focus on recommended practices to mitigate impact and what is being done to ensure future supply.

Bob Willis – bobwillis.co.uk, live stream from the UK – is conducting Electronics Manufacturing workshops;bobbyeglass large

  • “Printed Circuit Board Inspection & Field Failures – Causes and Cures” a half-day workshop highlighting test methods you can try and tricks of the trade to understand how PCBs can fail and how to eliminate many of the common causes
  • “Counterfeit Component Avoidance, Inspection & Failures – Causes & Cures” a half-day workshop that will not only illustrate the problems raised by counterfeit components within the electronics industry but it will also show you some of the different test methods that can be used to confirm the integrity of the components. Failure analysis techniques are now frequently being used to see if components are what they say they are rather than finding failure modes. The session also includes a FREE set 28 training wall charts covering testing and counterfeit avoidance procedures for each registered delegate to use 

Susy Webb - Snr PCB Designer at Design Science PCB - is conducting PCB Design workshops

Keith Sweatman – Senior Technical Advisor at Nihon Superior Ltd, Japan – is presenting “Low Temperature Soldering – A new challenge in electronics assembly”.  Just as the electronics industry is getting comfortably settled into the use of the current generation of lead-free solders, new issues are forcing consideration of a change to lead-free solders that can be used at process temperatures even lower than those that were used with tin-lead solder.   This move is being driven by several factors and presents potential benefits, but with these advantages come complications. This presentation will review the emerging low temperature soldering technology and identify the challenges to be addressed.

Full workshop and presentation abstracts available on request.
