Electronic Packaging for Medical Devices Workshop Focus:
The objective of the Medical Devices Workshop is to have a forum that brings together scientists, engineers, manufacturing, academia, and business people from around the world who are working in the area of electronic packaging for various types of medical devices. This workshop has been specifically organized to allow for the presentation and discussion of the current electronic packaging trends and issues affecting a wide variety of medical applications.

Attendees and presenters in the past have found that the Electronic Packaging for Medical Devices Workshop is a great opportunity to meet old colleagues and to form new relationships with people in the industry. If you are working in any area of electronics packaging or microelectronics, the Workshop on Electronic Packaging for Medical Devices would be well worth attending. Abstracts are being requested on the following topics:

  • Implantable device technology and trends
  • Imaging and Biosensors
  • MEMS/Nano Technology
  • Hearing/Vision Aids
  • Neurological Devices
  • Blood Diagnostics
  • Disposable Electronics
  • Biometric Identification
  • Wireless/RF Telemetry
  • Microfluidics
  • Environmental Constraints for Medical
  • Biocompatibility of Materials
  • Reliability Assessments
  • Qualification Approaches
  • RoHS Compliance & Regulations
