PEACHTREE CITY, GA – Registrants for the PCB West exhibition this fall will gain access to seven free technical sessions, the Printed Circuit Engineering Association announced today. The sessions take place on September 20 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, and cover topics about AI for electronic systems, reverse engineering PCBs, ultra-high interconnects, trace technology, and more.
“Free Wednesday” leads off with a panel on “Next-Generation Engineers,” moderated by Phil Marcoux, a legend in SMT and advanced packaging. Show attendees can interact with the panel of seers as they attempt to divine what’s in store for the entire electronics design to assembly supply chain. The panel is followed by a pair of sessions that address leading-edge circuit board wet processing (“Novel Embedded Trace Technology”) and automated assembly inspection using artificial intelligence (“Transforming PCBA Visual Inspection through Generative AI”).
Later that morning, the keynote speaker, Louis Feinstein, Global Director of High Tech Strategy at Dassault Systèmes, will speak on “Revolutionizing Electronics Cyber-Physical Systems: Unleashing the Power of MBSE and AI for Electronics System Design.”
Following a lunch on the show floor sponsored by Sierra Circuits, which is free to all show attendees, the free sessions resume with a one-hour explanation on “Reverse Engineering PCBs: How to Recreate a Lost Design.”
Filling out the afternoon schedule are two sessions including a panel discussing “AI in Electronics: What Can We Expect?,” moderated by Feinstein, and a presentation on ultra-high density interconnects, including the technology approach and manufacturing processes.
Following the free sessions is a reception on the exhibition show floor.
Anyone who registers at pcbwest.com for the exhibition and free sessions by September 18 will receive free admission. Day of show registration for the exhibition and free sessions is $25.
PRINTED CIRCUIT DESIGN & FAB and CIRCUITS ASSEMBLY magazines are media partners for the event.
