KEYNOTE: SUPPLY CHAIN AND THE ELECTRONIC COMPONENT CRISIS

The keynote will start with an overview of the electronics (mainly semiconductors) marketplace and how we got where we are today - Crisis.  The presentation will drill down more into the Medical marketplace and adjacent marketplaces as well. Then the speaker will share forward looking projections of where we are headed.  After that the presentation will discuss mitigation efforts such as reactive, proactive and predictive measures. From there the speaker will discuss new challenges - labor, geopolitical etc. and how we approach solutions for these challenges, and will plan to end with some Q&A.

KEYNOTE: HETEROGENEOUS INTEGRATION ENABLES NEW FUNCTIONALITY IN MEDICAL AND BIOTECH DEVICES

Continuous advances in medical technology, biotech, microelectronics and information processing are converging to enable a broadening range of devices that can diagnose, analyze and treat medical conditions. These devices incorporate not only electronics but also parts that interact with a patient and their environment to gather and analyze data to report the results to patients and medical professional. Manufacturing these heterogeneously assembled devices requires developing processes that are compatible with these parts and their distinctive characteristics. This talk will address the issues that arise during this process development and examine the exciting possibilities that are becoming viable thanks to miniaturization and other trends.

  IMAPS SAN DIEGO CHAPTER MEETING  

The San Diego Chapter will hold it's first technical meeting of 2023, featuring a presentation from Dr. Beth Keser, IMAPS President. Attendees from the Medical and Wire Bonding Workshops are invited to attend. San Diego Chapter members are encouraged to come early and visit our exhibitors during each workshop's happy hour reception as well. 


The Future of Electronic Packaging
Recently, multiple application spaces including high performance compute (HPC), autonomous driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and automotive, 5G/6G, internet of things (IoT)/MEMS/sensors require the combining chips to create new competitive and reliable product solutions. These applications, whether driven by performance, form factor, or cost require packaging solutions where distinctly different chips can be integrated into a package or system. This talk will explore the current and future challenges of these growing application spaces, the future electronic packaging technologies required to meet these challenges and the skillsets that are needed to be successful.

Beth Keser, Ph.D.

In Shane’s presentation, he will provide an overview of the proteomics field at large and the technology SomaLogic and his team are developing today.

Shane Bowen, SomaLogic | Vice President, Technology Dev. & General Manager

KEYNOTE - Shane BowenFollowing earning his M.S. in Applied Physics and Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from UC San Diego, Shane began his career in 2005 as a System Scientist working for TCZ, a joint-venture between Cymer and Zeiss, building equipment and processes used in the manufacturing of flat-panel displays. In 2007, he joined illumina as a Research Scientist, where he spent the next twelve and a half years developing technologies used throughout the most successful genotyping and DNA sequencing platforms on the planet. Shane was one of the key inventors of the chemical patterning technology that brought the $1000 genome to market in 2014 and championed the Nanofabrication division within illumina, driving many of the core innovations employed in sequencing today. In early 2020, Shane stepped away from illumina and co-found Palamedrix, a company focused on ushering in a new era of tools for quantitative proteomics. Serving as CEO for nearly 3 years, he led a successful exit with Palamedrix being acquired by SomaLogic, where Shane now leads the Technology Development division and serves as General Manager of their San Diego facility.

KEYNOTE: GLASS CORE TECHNOLOGY FOR ENABLING MINIATURIZATION AND NEXT GENERATION INTEGRATION OF MEDICAL DEVICES
Steve Hillerich, Samtec

As Moore’s Law seemingly slows, the need for novel substrates/interposers and packaging methods become more and more critical to continue driving miniaturization and more functionality from our devices. The inherent and consistent properties of glass has encouraged its selection as a well suited substrate. The process steps required reach this next generation of packaging technology with its fine feature sizes, transparency, and mechanical/electrical characteristics continue to mature. The family of glass core products is poised to offer this link to the next generation of packaging technology with to its fine feature sizes, transparency, and mechanical/electrical characteristics. Metalizing glass core products is not trivial but Samtec has a method for drilling holes and creating robust and reliable through glass vias. We can also metalize top and bottom faces of the glass to create circuits which can be used as substrates, interposers, RF components, embedded component, and microfluidics and optical wave guides. As glass processing continues to mature, this cost effective and stable material continues to demonstrate unique value in many emerging markets and specifically In medical devices.
