Asia Webinar is April 6; North America & Europe is April 7

HERNDON, VIRGINIA — The International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI) today announced that two webinars are scheduled to review highlights of the 2017 iNEMI Roadmap.

The first webinar, scheduled for April 6, will review the new Internet of Things (IoT) product sector chapter and the Packaging & Component Substrates chapter. The second webinar (April 7) will also review the IoT chapter plus the Sustainable Electronics chapter.

Both webinars will provide an overview of this latest roadmap and discuss general trends. iNEMI’s latest roadmap contains 28 chapters (the largest to date) and includes — for the first time — a chapter on IoT.

“This roadmap is a result of the contributions of approximately 500 individuals from at least 22 countries who represent more than 350 corporations, consortia and government agencies,” said Chuck Richardson, director of roadmapping for iNEMI. “The first seven chapters of the roadmap identify the technology needs of seven key product sectors. The remaining 21 chapters identify technology trends, focusing on the key technology capabilities and developments anticipated and required within the electronics manufacturing supply chain to meet those product needs over the next 10 years.”

The 2017 Roadmap is expected to go on sale in April, and is currently available online to iNEMI members.

Registration
Both webinars are open to industry and registration is free. For additional information and registration: http://community.inemi.org/content.asp?contentid=539
