Veterans have skills, competencies, and experiences that make them excellent candidates for careers in the microelectronics workforce. However, many veterans are either unaware of the industry or do not have insight into how their skills translate to the quality jobs available to them within microelectronics. At the same time, many companies are eager to hire veterans but are unable to connect with them. As the world’s major chipmakers invest billions of dollars to boost manufacturing capacity, this is an exciting time of great opportunity for people of all walks of life to join the industry. At this session, hear how industry, military, and association partnerships are addressing this talent pipeline opportunity by recognizing, recruiting, and retaining veterans.

LPKF, Booth 1644
An entirely new market into which LPKF will be penetrating this year is the semiconductor market. As the first link in the electronics production chain, chip manufacturers are setting the pace and pressing ahead with miniaturization. It is becoming increasingly common for electronic components on circuit boards to be arranged one on top of the other rather than next to one another. Multi-chip modules are placing new demands on chip package assemblies and on the materials used.
With the Vitrion 5000, LPKF has introduced a system that can drill ultrafine holes in very thin glass (Through Glass Via). The TGV technology is particularly suitable for economically producing the redistribution layers (interposer) of the multi-chip modules at a very high quality. Consequently, chip manufacturers could switch over from silicon or organic materials to glass. They would thus reduce material costs and improve the performance of multi-chip modules.
