IEEE CPMT Technical Commitee on Emerging Technologies (was: MEMS and Sensor Packaging)

  • Welcome Message

    Dear Reader,
    welcome to the site of IEEE-CPMT´s Technical Chapter on Emerging Technologies, which inherits the previous "MEMS and MEMS packaging" topic.
    Please find helpful links, information and contacts here.
    TC Emerging Technologies strives to provide you with up to date information on novel advancements in the field.
    Feel free to comment and suggest!

With the advent of 3D printing into the masses, the technology has also generated lots of interest in the packaging community. In order to capture that trend, the “Emerging Technologies” TC is proud to announce CPMT´s webinar on 3D printing with experts from the industry and academia.

Please make sure you register for Feb. 5th with the information you find on the CPMT´s Event website!

This is a unique chance to discuss with the experts, post your questions to the future visions of the technology and get the latest updates!

October 17th, 2013

The call for paper for the 15th DTIP (Design, Test, Interconect and Packaging) conference ist still open until the 30th of October. If you would like to share your research results with colleagues from academia and industry, you may want to consider going to Cannes in France next year, April 1st-4th.

Please see all details on their website or download the call for paper directly.

Microsensors including MEMS devices and microsystem integration concepts have since entered the food industry market. Challenged by scandals like the meat scandal in germany, mad cow disease claims in the US and milk contaminations in China have made consumers more aware than ever to hazards contained in food. The network “Food Microsystems” has taken up that penny to show where microsystems can help identifying risks and ensure safe food consumption. Please see their website for more details!

Dear colleagues!

The TC is about to undergo a major change….

MEMS and Sensor packaging used to be a challenge for the industry, but in recent years, solutions have surfaced that make the challenge less challenging. The TC committee has therefore-as part of the restructuring of the TC organization- suggested to rename the TC 11 from “MEMS and Sensor Packaging” to “Emerging Technologies” to reflect the strive of this TC to be at the cutting edge of the packaging process evolution.

Aside from the established topics, also bio-inspired concepts, 3d generative integration merging electronics with the 3d printing technologies will be adressed.

We need to identify now YOUR specific interest and contribution to give shape to this. So please do not hesitate to email to TCChair. You can also add your ideas in SurveyMonkey´s Q&A formsheet here.

Thank you!

This year’s 63th ECTC, held in the Cosmopolitan, Las Vegas, started already with a big success. 41 technical sessions highlight the most recent developments and findings in hily advanced packaging and integration technologies. The first day was filled with scientific results from both academia as well industy, spanning all continents.

If you are in the area, make sure to walk in and benefit from the assembly of experts.
