The smartphone market is expected to reach 1.5B units in 2016 consuming nearly 1/3 of the IC market as smartphones become the mini mobile computers in capabilities and the central hub/gateway for the Internet of Things (IoT) devices including wearables and home monitoring devices. This webcast will give an update to the previous April 30, 2015 Webinar on Smartphone as the Technology Driver.
As electronic circuits become more complex, engineers are finding new ways to assemble and package them. Electrically conductive adhesives provide durable bonds with conductive paths to suit a variety of electronics applications. They can be engineered to combine bond strength and electrical conductivity with other service-critical properties.November 11, 2016Sponsored by Master Bond, Inc.,

Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) present both unique market opportunities and significant manufacturing challenges for product designers in nearly every application segment. Used as accelerometers, pressure sensors, optical devices, microfluidic devices, and more, these microfabricated sensors and actuators often need to be exposed to the environment, but also need to be protected from environmental factors. Although standard semiconductor manufacturing methods provide a baseline capability in meeting these challenges, the unique requirements of MEMS devices drive a need for specialized epoxies and adhesives able to satisfy often-conflicting demands.May 12, 2016Sponsored by Master Bond, Inc.,
