Tabletop Exhibit Information

The Ceramic Interconnect and Ceramic Microsystems Technologies (CICMT) conference brings together a diverse set of disciplines to share experiences and promote opportunities to accelerate research, development and application of ceramic interconnect and ceramic microsystems technologies. This international conference features ceramic technology for both Microsystems and Interconnect applications in a dual-track technical program.

The Ceramic Interconnect track focuses on cost effective and reliable high performance ceramic interconnect products for hostile thermal and chemical environments in the automotive, aerospace, defense/security, and communication industries. The Ceramic Microsystems track focuses on emerging applications and new products that exploit the ability of 3-D ceramic structures to integrate interconnect/packaging with microfluidic, optical, microreactor and sensing functions. Tape casting, thick-film hybrid, direct write and rapid prototyping technologies are common to both tracks, with emphasis on material, processes, prototype development, advanced design and application opportunities.
