REGISTRATION DETAILS | HOTEL & VENUE 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 the 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, lighting, solar, 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, micro-reactor and sensing functions. Tape casting, thick film hybrid, direct write and rapid prototyping technologies are common to both tracks, with emphasis on materials, processes, prototype development, advanced design and application opportunities.
Conventional thick and thin film ceramic technologies are being revolutionized and extended through the development of low temperature co-fired ceramics, photo patterning, and embedded passive component materials and processes. These have contributed to increased circuit density, enhanced functionality, and improved performance that are being adopted for leading edge applications in wireless and optical communications, automotive, MEMS, sensors, and energy. Data communications and the Internet are driving the demand for bandwidth, sparking demand for optical communication equipment and new interconnect and packaging applications that perform at 40 Gb/sec and beyond. In under-the-hood electronics for automotive, engine/transmission control, communications, and safety applications continue to drive the growth of ceramic interconnect technology, while collision avoidance systems are creating interest in low loss ceramic materials for frequencies approaching 100 GHz.
Enabled by the availability of commercial ceramic, metal and embedded passives materials systems, and the rapid prototyping capabilities of the well established multilayer ceramic interconnect technology, three dimensional (3-D) functional ceramic structures are spawning new microsystems applications in MEMS, sensors, microfluidics, bio-devices, microreactors, and metamaterials. These new devices and applications exploit the ability to integrate complex 3D features and active components (e.g., valves, pumps, switches, light pipes, and reaction chambers).
In addition, the Ceramic Microsystems track of the CICMT conference targets new developments in microsystems that include fabricating 3- D micro device structures enhanced with sol-gel, advanced printing and patterning technologies, high temperature materials technologies, and emerging applications like energy harvesting. Many of these innovative applications are taking advantage of the unique ability to integrate the thermal, chemical, mechanical and electrical properties of these multicomponent ceramic-metal systems.
Invited keynote and international presentations on the current status ceramic technology and
future system directions.
A focused exhibition for suppliers who support the use
of the technologies.
A technical poster session to promote student participation.
• Social events to promote new contacts.
