IPC Social Media Platforms Help Start the Dialogue

BANNOCKBURN, Ill., USA - Genuine electronics manufacturing industry concerns, challenges and problems will be addressed in 50 IPC APEX EXPO professional development courses, February 26-27 and March 1, 2012, at the San Diego Convention Center.

Covering critical issues in design, manufacturing, assembly and test, the courses go beyond theory to provide practical solutions to industry challenges. This year, with a little help from social media outlets, instructors are gathering input on actual challenges that industry engineers, PCB designers and manufacturing technicians face. Conversations on IPC social media outlets, including LinkedIn, Facebook and IPC Technet, will ensure that courses provide, as Susan Filz, IPC director of industry programs, puts it, "not only the premier standard of education, but also practical and direct solutions to real challenges."

"The value gained by participants is ten-fold when instructors can directly address individual needs or concerns," says Filz. She adds that instructors like Dr. Bhanu Sood, University of Maryland, and Bob Willis, of ASKbobwillis.com are already engaging in dialogue with industry and others are expected to join in conversations online soon.

IPC APEX EXPO faculty members are top experts in the industry, including: Daniel DiTuro, Honeywell International; Dale Lee, Plexus Corp.; Dr. Rita Mohanty, Speedline Technologies; Dr. Michael Osterman, CALCE; Douglas Pauls, Rockwell Collins; David Pinsky, Raytheon Corp.; Christopher Ryder of AT&S Austria Technologie & Systemtechnik AG; Cheryl Tulkoff, CRE, DfR Solutions; Phil Zarrow, ITM Consulting; as well as other distinguished technologists.

Counterfeit Components - Causes, Cures and Solutions (PD09)

Design and Packaging for Space Hardware and Other High-Reliability Applications (PD12)

Best Practices in Electronics Assembly Processes - Parts I and II (PD-13 and PD-17)
