Indium Corporation’s Andy Mackie, PhD, MSc, Senior Product Manager for Semiconductor and Advanced Assembly Materials, will host an automotive electronics webinar with SEMI at 11 a.m. Eastern Time (4 p.m. British Time/11 p.m. Malaysia Time) on Thursday, Sept. 17.
Over the last decade, the evolution of the automobile has been faster than ever before, and the 2020s promise even more rapid progress. The foreseen changes include the nature of car ownership, how the car is powered, increased safety, and driver automation. Each of these changes is only possible with advances in electronics hardware and systems, electronics assembly, and semiconductor packaging. In What’s Driving: Automotive Electronics Assembly and Packaging, Dr. Mackie will discuss the impact of these changes on electronics assembly and packaging, and the impact of mission profiles on component- and system-level reliability.
