The 2018 Microelectronics Reliability & Qualification Working Meeting (MRQW) will take place February 6–8 & will address various topics concerning the reliability & qualification of microelectronics targeted for use in space systems
FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. (January 18, 2018) – AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer and supplier of passive components and interconnect solutions, will present a technical paper about advances in high-reliability conductive polymer capacitors for space applications at the 2018 Microelectronics Reliability and Qualification Working Meeting (MRQW), which will take place February 6–8 in El Segundo, California.
Sponsored by The Aerospace Corporation, supported by NASA and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and designed for reliability engineers, radiation-effects engineers, and microelectronic technology developers and parts procurement professionals, MRQW provides a forum for the open discussion of microelectronics reliability and qualification issues for microelectronics targeted for use in space systems. The 2018 format will consist of two and a half days of meetings with multiple technical sessions and two keynote speakers, in addition to several networking opportunities, and will address topics including: advanced technology reliability issues, product qualification methodology, advanced space microprocessors and memories, RF/analog/mixed-signal device and design issues, space radiation effects, FPGA reliability and qualification issues, hardness-by-design, reliability for extreme environments, advanced packaging issues, failure analysis, optoelectronics, GaN reliability and radiation effects, and emerging technologies.
AVX Fellow Ron Demcko will present “Advances in High-Reliability Conductive Polymer Capacitors” at 11:00am on Tuesday, February 6.
“MRQW is an annual event that facilitates in-depth technical discussions about emerging technologies that are applicable to spacecraft electronics. Early identification, understanding, and optimization of these technologies allows for more powerful and reliable flight electronics and ultimately impacts terrestrial electronics via the adoption of improved technologies,” said Demcko. “AVX welcomes the opportunity to present on the technologies we’ve developed to drive system performance across multiple sectors.”
