BANNOCKBURN, Ill., USA, — Tackling the hot topics that have the electronics industry buzzing, seven free BUZZ sessions will be offered at IPC APEX EXPOŽ, February 19-21, 2013, at the San Diego Convention Center. The industry’s top technical experts on subjects ranging from automotive and new technologies to conflict minerals, export controls and technology roadmaps will provide insights into timely issues surrounding each of these BUZZ-worthy topics.

Addressing “New Technologies,” Jasbir Bath, IPC principal engineer for assembly technology, will lead off the BUZZ sessions on February 19. Bath will chair a discussion on new and emerging component technologies. Advancements in state-of-the-art electronic component interconnections will be one of the central themes. Then, C. Don Dupriest, Lockheed Martin Missiles & Fire Control, will moderate a panel featuring a “who’s who in electronics,” during which IPC Hall of Fame Award recipients will take audience questions  on technology and trends and share the wisdom earned from a collective 300-plus years of experience.

On February 20, Chris Mitchell, Prime Policy, will moderate a panel on “Export Controls: Understanding ITAR and IT Reform.” The panel of experts will provide an overview of International Traffic in Arms Regulations’ (ITAR’s) application to printed boards.

Later that morning, Fern Abrams, IPC director of government relations and environmental policy, will moderate a session on conflict minerals, which will provide an overview of conflict minerals disclosure and reporting regulation finalized by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission last August. A panel of experts will discuss tools for regulatory compliance and customers’ requirements. And later that day, a session dedicated to “Automotive Technologies” will provide a current and future view of electronics technology used within the automotive electronics industry.

On February 21, the final two BUZZ sessions on the reclassification of FR-4 composite materials and technology roadmaps will be held. Crystal Vanderpan, UL LLC, will discuss UL initiatives and provide an update on UL recognition for laminate and printed board materials. In addition, Marc Carter, IPC director of technology transfer, will take session attendees on a tour of technology roadmapping efforts for printed circuit cards and electronics assemblies. He will highlight the major trends in the evolution of technology across multiple disciplines during the “IPC/iNEMI Technology Roadmap” session.

Admission to the BUZZ sessions and the exhibit hall is free to pre-registrants, a savings of $25 on-site. Visit www.IPCAPEXEXPO.org/buzz-sessions for more information.
