EV Electronics: Design, Manufacturing, and Reliability Challenges
Thursday, April 11
11:30 AM-2:00 PM
EV Electronics: Design, Manufacturing, and Reliability Challenges will include two topical sessions, selected by a Technical Program Committee of EV industry experts, chaired by Dr. Stanton Rak. The first session, “PCBA Reliability and Test for EV Applications,” will be moderated by Lenora Clark, Director of Autonomous Driving and Safety Technology at MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions. Topics will include high voltage test and reliability, solder and Ag-sintering material reliability, high-voltage PCB failure mechanisms and testing protection materials. Dr. Udo Welzel, Senior Expert at Robert Bosch, will moderate the second topical session, “EV Power Electronics Design and Manufacturability.” Speakers representing companies such as Semikron Danfoss, Rober Bosch, Zestron, Indium Corporation, MiroTek, and TRUMPF will deliver brief technical presentations followed by panel discussion with audience participation. Topics will include high current and high voltage connections with PCB, laser welding for busbars, power electronics, and more. The e-Mobility session is supported by IPC’s e-Mobility Quality & Reliability Advisory Council, and closely aligns with the council’s mission to help deliver e-Mobility quality, reliability and safety while protecting the drive for innovation.
