The past, the present and the future—these the three elements of EIPC’s 50th anniversary conference being held in Dusseldorf in June this year. Half a century has passed since EIPC was founded in the days when the PCB was more than just a commodity.
There will be a first-class show on June 21–22, when the conference on Day 1 culminates with a visit to Unimicron’s new multilayer factory in Geldern, the Tate Modern of the European PCB industry. This will be followed by a celebration dinner at the 14th Century listed and moated Walbeck Castle.
Day 1 will be the occasion in which Paul Waldner looks back over 50 years in the industry, while Hans Friedrichkreit unveils his metric crystal ball to compete with the imperial one that Walt Custer usually produces. From then on, there will be a wealth of technological discussions on topics such as traceability, PCB 4.0, and halogen-free laminates.
Day 2 is dedicated to flex for 5G, curved and stretchable PCBs, open-source language, organic surface preservatives, and lab-on-PCB technology, as well as the traditional glimpses into developments in applications, chemistries and supply chain management.
