IMAPS 2009 - Announcing Complimentary Tutorial on Electronics, Energy, and the Environment    ^ Top
Instructor:
Harry K. Charles, Jr. Ph. D.

Wednesday, November 4, 2009 – 1:35pm-5:25pm
McEnery Convention Center, Room A7

Registration is complimentary for all attendees. Reserve your seat today:
http://www.imaps.org/registration/imaps2009.htm and follow the link to "complimentary exhibit passes". Or email Brian Schieman, bschieman@imaps.org, to reserve your seat.

Description:

Energy availability and its cost are major concerns to every person.  Fossil fuels in general and oil in particular, are limited and the world’s reserves are depleting. In addition, the proliferation of electronic products and their manufacture now pose additional threats to the fragile balance in the Earth’s eco systems. While posing threats, electronics can be the solution to many of our current and future environmental and energy related problems.   The environmental threats from electronics can be significantly reduced or eliminated through environmentally responsible design manufacture, distribution, usage, and end-of-life disposal. This introductory overview outlines how the electronics industry has been responsive to the environmental challenges as well as providing alternatives to or reductions in fossil fuels and their high carbon footprint. Highlights will include: a discussion of  “green” electronics; the potential impact of the widespread deployment of photovoltaic devices, the case for solid state lighting, improvements in battery technology; and nano-electronics.

Who Should Attend?
Engineers, managers, venture capitalists, and any individual interested in the progress the electronics industry has made in the development of “green” electronics and the potential of electronics technology to make significant impact on reducing fossil fuel usage.

Implantable Medical Devices Past Successes; Current Status; Future Possibilities and Challenges

Peter Tortorici, PhD
Medtronic

Medical devices have been instrumental in successfully treating chronic diseases with fifty years of success treating chronic heart conditions via implantable pacemakers and about twenty years of similar success treating sudden cardiac death via implantable cardio defibrillators. Device therapy has since migrated beyond traditional cardiac care into treating diseases such as Parkinson’s, diabetes, and chronic pain. Information on the latest advancements in the electronics industry to drive size, reliability improvement, and cost (all while increasing functionality), along with the need to adapt to the ever-changing market and regulatory dynamics will be presented. A review of implantable medical devices for cardiac care will be shown with examples of how the therapies have migrated to treat a variety of illnesses. Examples of technology innovations and final thoughts on future innovation and challenges will be shared.

Copper Cold Spray Thermal Management and Solderable Surfaces
Mr. Victor Champagne - Advanced Materials and Processes Team Technical Leader
US Army Research Laboratory (ARL)

Abstract:
This presentation will provide a basic understanding of an emerging technology, referred to as ‘Cold Spray’, which has evolved from a laboratory curiosity to a production viable process. Cold Spray is a materials deposition process whereby combinations of metallic and non-metallic particles are consolidated to form a coating or freestanding structure by means of ballistic impingement upon a suitable substrate. Cold spray is often compared with traditional thermal spray processes and although there are certain similarities, it is important to recognize the fundamental differences between them in order to determine which technique are best suited for electronic applications. There is substantial data to suggest that cold spray has a niche in the marketplace; however, it must also be realized that cold spray does have limitations that should be acknowledged in order to prevent misuse of the technology.

Biography:
Mr. Champagne is a research materials engineer who has worked for the US Army Research Laboratory (ARL) and its predecessor organizations for over 24 years. He has been the technical leader for the Advanced Materials and Processes Team since 1986, where he conducts research and development programs in coatings and advanced materials and processing technologies. His research efforts have focused on the development of emerging technologies, which can be implemented into production and the field. He is internationally recognized as an expert in Cold Spray Technology and has established the ARL Cold Spray Center located in Aberdeen, MD whose focus is the development of cold spray applications for DOD and Industry. Over the past year he was awarded the prestigious U.S. Army Research and Development Achievement Award and also the Defense Manufacturing Excellence Award for his Research in Cold Spray. He was the editor of the first comprehensive reference book on cold spray for The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IoM3) published by Woodhead Publishing. He also serves as a Research Associate at Worcester Polytechnic Institute and as a liaison to Natick Laboratories, both located in MA. He is also a Thesis Advisor for graduate students at several universities including the Pennsylvania State University and manages over $23M in projects and programs for ARL.
