The effect of the space environment on the reliability of electronic materials and devices is of continuous concern and discussion. Therefore our knowledge needs to be continually expanded in order to improve the design, reliability and safety of launchers, spacecraft and space instruments. The key drivers for technology development are future mission requirements that are currently experiencing rapid advances in the performance requirements needed for scientific instruments. The selection of materials, processes and devices for future space missions must also anticipate the causes of environmental regulations (e.g. REACH, RoHS) and utilize cleaner technologies in order to mitigate the environmental impacts of space programs.
The focus of the EMPS Workshop is set on high-reliability manufacturing of electronic assemblies intended to withstand assembly, storage, ground test conditions and the conditions imposed by launchers and the space flight environments. The workshop aims to promote the development and awareness of materials and manufacturing processes utilized for space applications and to foster the discussion and exchanges of knowledge among the industry and research centres actively involved in space applications and other high-reliability electronics.
The workshop will take place online on 1st June 2021, and will be hosted on Webex.
Registration is free of charge.
We are looking forward to meeting an international audience online in June 2021.
