17th Annual European Passive Components Conference The CARTS-Europe (Capacitor and Resistor Technology Symposium) 17th Annual Conference will take place from Oct. 27 to Oct. 30, 2003, in Stuttgart, Germany. The keynote speaker, Robert Dickinson, president of California Micro Devices, will address the issue “Are Discrete Passives an Endangered Species?”
The 2003 CARTS-Europe will emphasize “Automotive and Harsh Environments Applications”. An invited paper on the reliability of lead-free solder in low temperature use will be presented. Other papers on capacitors and resistors, performance, construction and raw materials are scheduled for presentation over the three day conference.
An additional seminar will highlight Trends and New Technology for passive components. Topics presented at the seminar will include integrated passives, MEMs, the impact of nanotechnology on passives, the use of copper for EME terminations and more.
CARTS is the only conference devoted 100% to the technology of Passive Components.
