Robert Tarzwell to Present at the IPC Conference on Printed Electronics

Press release date: January 10, 2011

Printed Electronics Expert, Tarzwell to Discuss Printed Electronics: The Future Freeport, the Bahamas: Industry veteran and printed electronics products inventor Robert Tarzwell will be one of the featured speakers at IPC Conference on Printed Electronics to be held on January 18 and 19 at the Marriot in Irvine, California. Tarzwell who has invented a number of products using printed electronics will be speaking about the future of the technology. As he stated," this is really just the beginning when it comes to printed electronics. This technology allows us to do things we never dreamed of just a few years ago. From fabricating circuit boards with one mil lines and spacing, to developing all sorts of smart packaging, the future of printed electronics is limitless. We have turned the corner on a whole new world of electronics." Mr. Tarzwell is scheduled to speak at 1:30 on Tuesday, January 18th. The Conference on Printed Electronics
Industry estimates project that by the end of 2010, printed electronics will be 35 percent of a $1.92 billion printed, thin film and organic electronics market. By 2020, the market could grow to $55.1 billion with 71 percent of that being printed electronics. While the development of printed electronics is in the early stages, it is evident that it has the potential to change the electronics industry. The IPC Conference on Printed Electronics: What Does It Mean for the Printed Circuit Board Industry? will give you a glimpse of the possibilities for printed electronics. You will discover:
o Opportunities in printed electronics for printed circuit board manufacturers
o End-user requirements for printed electronics
o What major PCB manufacturers are doing in terms of printed electronics
o What improvements are being made in materials to support the advancement
o Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in an initial meeting to develop a Printed Electronics standard for the PCB industry, during the afternoon of January 19, 2011. Robert Tarzwell
Robert Tarzwell is semi-retired, living in the Bahamas, consulting to the PCB business and spending his free time writing books, working on antique cars and deep sea fishing. Robert started in printed circuit boards in 1964, part time and during the summers while attending Sheridan College in Canada, earning a degree in electronics and cinema photography. After college and a ten-year stint in television electronics and proto-type printed circuit manufacturing, he started a printed circuit, quick turn, manufacturing company. The printed circuit company specialized in high technology research and development. Robert learned how to manufacture many different types of high technology circuit boards including very fine lines below 1.5 mils and very heavy copper up to 40 oz. Since selling his company in 2000, Robert has developed and transferred advanced printed circuit high technology to many companies. Robert has written hundreds of articles, spoken as keynote speaker and written 22 books on printed circuit technologies and car racing. Robert has 3 patent- pending applications in fine lines, high reliability and outer space printed circuits. Robert has now completed his five year contract with Sierra Proto Express, San Jose, Ca. and is able to transfer 20 advanced new products such as new bleeding edge, extreme circuits, high reliable electronics, heat sinking technology, low CTE technology, micro circuits and ultra fine lines to 8 micron, high voltage, heavy copper to 20 oz., impedance vias, three dimensional copper structures and silver ink HDI circuits. Robert has invented high technology printed circuits for Delphi, Rockwell Collins, Boeing, NASA, Allied Signal and many more electronics companies. Robert also worked to advance the technology of HDI dielectric circuits through hybrid combinations with silver ink. Robert now spends his time writing PCB books and transferring advanced technologies to PCB shops. About IPC
