The team here at Abrel will be attending several key events this year so, if you’re interested in chatting about all things “burn-in” – why not meet us for a chat? We love the opportunity to catch up with customers, old and new, and we are booked in to attend three leading industry events in 2018:
- BiTs Mesa, Arizona 4-7 March 2018
- PSECE Manila, Philippines 13-15 June 2018
- Semicon Europa, Munich Germany 13-16 Nov 2018
BiTs Mesa 2018
Up first for us is Bits Mesa 2018 taking place from the 4-7 March in Arizona. The Bits Burn-in and Test Strategies Workshop is a highlight in the calendar each year. We went to BiTs 2017, when Analog Devices did a presentation featuring one of our innovative solutions for burn-in boards and it was a great few days, with lots of productive networking for all who attended.
This year the BiTs kicks off on Sunday with some tutorials and a reception dinner in the evening. On Monday morning the keynote speech is being delivered by Gayn Erickson, followed by a series of technical sessions:
- High Frequency, 5G, and millimeter-wave
- Advanced PCB Technology Contact Technology
- PCB Simulation – Characterization
- System Level Test
- PCB Burn-in Boards
Each day has a “Poster Session”, which is always very popular with the attendees and a good chance to network.
Next up is the Philippine Semiconductor and Electronics Convention and Exhibition (PSECE). This is the largest annual conference and exhibition of tech companies in the Philippines. At PSECE 2017 over 10,000 people attended the event over the three days and it is expected to be even bigger and better this year!
The event runs from 13th – 15th June and each day will see a number of excellent speakers involved in presentations, workshops and discussions.
Delegates will also have the opportunity to browse through the exhibition area and attend a variety of breakout sessions. It is expected that over 125 companies will be exhibiting at the event so it’s a great opportunity to see all the latest developments taking place in the industry.
Abrel will be taking a booth at PSECE 2018 so please do drop by and say hello to our team. We work with lots of companies in the Philippines and are looking forward to seeing them all at this fantastic event.
If you would like to arrange a specific meeting, please contact us in advance of the event.
The next event we have currently lined up to attend is Semicon Europa which will take place in Munich from 13th – 16th November. This is one of the largest trade shows in Europe and features some of the most exciting and innovative electronics companies on the planet. Over 8,000 attended the event in 2017 with 350 exhibitors taking a stand. This year Abrel is planning to have a booth at the trade show.
