Get an update on new technologies and materials and how they affect the physical hardware realization process.

Together with E-Consult International we are having a "Hardware DfX seminar" at our facilities in Odense 28. September 2022, 10.00- 15.30.

As a participant you will get inspiration and a general update on new technologies and materials and how they affect the physical hardware realization process from early device concepting to volume production - and eventually the reliability of the device. Even with the best designed electronics schematics and software it will not be possible to ensure a high performing, reliable and manufacturable product if you underestimate the importance of the hardware realization process. 

Failing to consider and select the most feasible manufacturing technologies, materials and electromechanical hardware integration in the early electronics device concept phase, may lead to a high risk of ending up with production ramp-up challenges and reliability disasters which in many cases result in product launch delays and severe project cost/earnings penalties. This seminar will focus on important tasks and milestones in the physical hardware realization process from early "Device Concepting" to volume production.

Target audience

Engineers and managers involved in electronics hardware device design, manufacturing and reliability assurance.

Main topics covered

  • "Device Concepting" with focus on design for manufacturing, automtation, reliability, coating, underfilling, test lowest, total cost etc.
  • Manufacturing technology options (substrate and component evolution and types)
  • "New" substrate/packaging trends
  • PCB design considerations, HDI guidelines and PCB manufacturing specification
  • Technology and performance versus costs
  • Board to board, flex and wire interconnect methods
  • EMS selection criteria
  • Board assembly process flow and equipment
  • Dominant hardware failure types in mobile electronics and ways to improve reliability (physical impact damages, corrosion and wear, electrochemical migration)
  • Production validation test and analysis methods

Meet the speakers

The speakers all have 35+ years hands-on experience in their field of expertise and have contributed to design, optimisation and production of several hundred PCBs and electronics devices:
