Having a single coherent set of operating and performance standards is important to the continued growth of the industry. Uniform methods will make it easier for users to design in the technology and will prevent errors.

The LTCC Standards Group is presenting a panel discussion of the issue. The panel will feature a cross- section of industry figures including from academics, material makers, fabricators and users from North America, Europe and Asia. We will begin with a brief update and status report on the effort and then open the floor to questions and discussion.
