THOUSANDS OF SEMICONDUCTOR MANUFACTURERS FIND SOLUTIONS TO TODAY'S DESIGN CHALLENGES; MEPPE FOCUS '93 SCHEDULED MAY 18-21

 PLEASANTON, Calif., April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The MEPPE (Microelectronics Packaging and Processing Engineers) Group Inc. announced today that MEPPE FOCUS '93, the eighth annual conference and exhibition focusing exclusively on the needs of integrated circuit (IC) manufacturers, will be held May 18-21, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara.
 Revolution in Semiconductor Manufacturing
 'Where the Package Meets the Board'
 Increasingly, IC manufacturers are finding new applications and innovative solutions through packaging design. The resulting proliferation of package types is dramatically impacting manufacturing at the assembly, test and board mount phases of production. All of these new package types present a unique array of obstacles for manufacturing operations. MEPPE FOCUS '93 will provide an in-depth look at this revolution in manufacturing, offer solutions for the challenges facing the industry, and provide valuable insight into the latest industry standards, technologies and products.
 MEPPE FOCUS '93 will offer an exciting and informative educational environment where key decision makers from both engineering and management can interact to solve problems. The conference program includes four in-depth tutorials, eight technical sessions, and the three-day exhibition. The theme of this year's event, "Where the Package Meets the Board," was selected to convey the evolution that is currently taking place in semiconductor manufacturing.
