Press release date: February 16, 2009

BANNOCKBURN, Ill., USA, February 16, 2009 - With six weeks to go, and IPC APEX EXPO(TM) registrations exceeding expectations, Phil Zarrow and James Hall may see another standing-room-only event for their Lean and Green SMT Manufacturing course this year. The same holds true for other popular and well-respected industry experts presenting at the event, including Joe Fjelstad, Ray Prasad, Ron Lasky and Ken Gilleo. The IPC APEX EXPO professional development courses will be held Sunday, Monday and Thursday, March 29, 30 and April 2 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas.

Unlike any other event in the world, IPC APEX EXPO brings the industry's elite together to provide comprehensive and intense educational updates in the areas of advanced technologies; design; green initiatives; lead-free technologies; materials; process improvements; solder joint reliability; and more.

"Our industry's technologies, materials and processes are continuously maturing. If you fall behind in understanding the new developments, you shortchange yourself and, as I trust any thoughtful company CEO would agree, your company's future. IPC APEX EXPO is the best and most cost-effective pathway to that knowledge," said Fjelstad, founder and president of Verdant Electronics. "In an industry as dynamic as ours, what you don't know CAN hurt you."

2009 course highlights include:

o Lean and Green SMT Manufacturing,
o Flexible Circuit Technology: Structures, Applications, Materials and Manufacturing Processes,
o Implementing a Halogen-Free Circuit Board Assembly Process,
o Nanoelectronics, MEMS and MOEMS: Products and Packages,
o Vapor-Phase or Convection Reflow Soldering for Lead-Free and Tin-Lead Assembly,
o Lead-Free Flip-Chip Wafer-Level Packaging for 3-D System-in-Packages and PCB Assemblies,
o Understanding Failure and Root-Cause Analysis in Lead-Free Electronics,
o and many more!
