Workshop Background

In May 2003, the IWPC held a workshop to address the status of millimeterwave devices for automotive sensor applications which are beginning to emerge and be adopted in up-scale vehicles.  At the same time, the opportunity was taken to review the changes and developments taking place in the broadband millimeterwave communications equipment sectors. Both are seeking breakthroughs in semiconductor devices and packaging and assembly technologies.

Since that workshop, significant changes have been and are taking place in this equipment sector. Firstly, the FCC recently endorsed the use of the 71-76 GHz and 81-86 GHz bands for high-speed broadband communications with somewhat relaxed rules for their usage. Similarly, there are very active efforts underway to allocate the 76-81 GHz bands for use in automotive sensors and adaptive cruise control systems.

This workshop will address the implications of these changes for the automotive and communications markets, technology  and equipment.

Automakers and communications systems providers continue to look for low cost solutions which can survive the very stringent demands of electronics at such high frequencies.  A key element of this is the availability of low cost millimeterwave semiconductors and integration and packaging technologies.

If your business is anywhere in the supply chain for future millimeterwave automotive or communications applications, you MUST actively participate in this unique IWPC Interactive Technical Workshop.

 

Workshop Goal

 

The GOAL of this workshop, is to bring together senior leaders from THE ENTIRE SUPPLY CHAIN to facilitate and stimulate breakthrough thinking on emerging technologies and manufacturing methods which, when coupled with market needs and timings, and key system cost drivers, can substantially drive down the cost of the equipment needed for millimeterwave automotive and communications systems.

In short, the goal of this workshop is to create an open, interactive environment, where the entire supply chain can communicate, network, share technology requirements and capabilities, and achieve mutually desired goals.
