Western countries are making massive investments to re-shore semiconductor manufacturing activities and build a resilient supply chain in North America and in Europe. Under these ‘Chip Acts’ reside an astonishing investment effort made by several major semiconductor players to build a new production plant or expand their current facilities. There is no doubt that in the coming years, the overall installed capacity will quadruple in North America, offering major market opportunities for everyone in the electronics ecosystem across Canada.
Insights into this future endeavour will be provided to those attending this session.

"ESD Best Practices Packaging, Handling and Storage"Location: Carrera Room
ESD has become an important topic of conversation in the manufacturing process of the electronics industry. As components become more sensitive to damage caused by an ESD, companies must take more precautions to help eliminate and isolate any chance that their products are exposed to situations that could introduce the opportunity for an ESD event. While you can have the most advanced ESD program for grounding, smocks, constant monitoring and such, if care is not taken in material selection for handling, storage and shipping all the hard work on the front end is voided by bad practices on the back end. Considerations concerning handling and packaging are physical, electrical and chemical. This presentation will discuss Best Practices to help improve your overall manufacturing process and improve quality.
