Advancing Microelectronics Magazine


IMAPS Advancing Microelectronics Magazine Moves from Mailbox to Inbox


IMAPS is eager to reveal an exciting new facelift to our hallmark member magazine Advancing Microelectronics! After decades of mailbox delivery, the magazine has moved to a purely interactive digital format effective with the 2020 Advanced SiP Special Issue.

The print publication of Advancing Microelectronics has already been complemented by publication in the exclusive IMAPSource digital archives for several years. The archived version of each issue will remain accessible to members and nonmembers alike, but the primary delivery of the magazine is shifting to a new, highly interactive platform with enhanced tools for authors, readers, and advertisers.

This long overdue change is timely for our signature publication, but the value of IMAPS membership is rooted in connections. We believe that the enhancements ushered in by this format will improve the quality of our members’ connections to the industry, only adding to the member experience. We look forward to hearing your impressions of the new Advancing Microelectronics.
