IMAPS-UK Altogether, better connected!

IPower 3 – Electronic Packaging for Net Zero

IMAPS-UK’s IPower3 Conference on Electronic Packaging for Net Zero will take place on Thursday 2 December 2021 at the Advanced Propulsion Centre at the University of Warwick, near Coventry in a face to face format. Achieving Net Zero will present some of the most significant challenges to be faced by a wide range of electrical and electronic based industries in the next decade. Getting reliable and fully functional products to market will require electronic and electrical packaging solutions that can operate at higher currents and voltages, faster frequencies and increased temperatures. This conference will hear from OEMs, material and equipment suppliers and academia about the current and future solutions to meet these demanding requirements.
