Advanced Technology Workshop on Thermal Management - Abstract Deadline Extended Until July 23 ^
Thermal Management 2007 is being held September 24-27, at the Holiday Inn San Jose in San Jose, California. The call for abstracts is now available on-line at www.imaps.org/thermal. Abstracts must be submitted before July 23, 2007.
This workshop is organized each year by IMAPS to promote discussion of leading-edge developments in thermal management components, materials, and systems solutions for removing, spreading, and dissipating heat from microelectronic devices and systems. The Workshop emphasis is for practical, high-performance solutions to meet current and evolving requirements in computing and wireless/telecom systems. Single-company product development concepts are acceptable subjects; however, all abstracts will be judged on novel and innovative contributions to the industry knowledge.
This Advanced Technology Workshop (ATW) on Thermal Management has been held since 1992 and is considered to be one of the most successful of the IMAPS ATWs that are held each year. The 2006 Workshop featured 41 presentations, five of which were competition-selected graduate student papers.

Precision bumped flex circuits are a product of electroforming technology developed over many years of creating solutions for high-density, high-speed, rugged interconnect requirements of Hughes’ aircraft, satellite, and missile products.
The unique, 3-D precision features of the circuits enable interesting new options for emerging and future interconnect requirements. The technology has recently been extended into lower cost automotive, telecommunication, and medical applications, and we believe the best fit of the technology will continue to be situations where the precision features provide solutions to challenging speed, density and assembly requirements.
This presentation serves as an overview of the basic technology and highlights some existing classes of product applications in low profile, high-density interconnect, low cost PC-based MEMs integration, and medical devices on flex. We hope that this material will introduce the IMAPS members to Precision Bumped Flex Circuit, and open the technology as a potential solution for new, challenging interconnect applications.
Dr. Pete Hudson has over 30 years experience in the Integrated Circuit and Packaging Technology Industry. In previous occupations he was the Army Very High Speed Integrated Circuit (VHSIC) Program Manager and the Manager of GM's technology development of Bumped Flex for Power Train Controller applications. He is currently the leader of the NanoSolutions Flex Circuit Unit.
