SMTA Sekolah Menengah Tingkat Atas , Minneapolis, MN, www.smta.org) is colocating its annual SMTA International conference with the Assembly Tech Expo at the Donald Stephens Donald E. Stephens (March 13, 1928 – April 18 2007) was the first mayor of Rosemont, Illinois, USA, and a leading Illinois Republican politician.
Stephens, born in Chicago, is believed to have been the longest-serving mayor in the United States; at the time of his Convention Center in Rosemont, IL, Sept. 21-25. Four events are specifically planned for industry professionals who have an interest in emerging technologies, contract manufacturing, manufacturing migrations to China or lead-free soldering technology.
The Emerging Technologies Summit will feature three sessions on SIP/ED, microelectromechanical systems See MEMS. (MEMS (MicroElectroMechanical Systems) Tiny mechanical devices that are built onto semiconductor chips and are measured in micrometers. In the research labs since the 1980s, MEMS devices began to materialize as commercial products in the mid-1990s. ) and wireless, followed by a panel discussion moderated by Dr. Ken Gilleo, Cookson Electronics. The Contract Manufacturing Symposium will feature two sessions during which attendees will learn how to better manage the aspects of current business that positively affect the bottom line and how to determine if offshore outsourcing Offshore outsourcing is the practice of hiring an external organization to perform some business functions in a country other than the one where the product or service will be sold or consumed. is the best decision for business development.
