Major LED manufacturers such as Cotco, Cree, Lumileds, Nichia, Osram Opto, and Toyoda Gosei are also represented. Other sections of the conference will focus on drivers, optics, packaging and thermal management.

Packaging & Assembly of Power LEDs

IMAPS – the International Microelectronics and Packaging Society – is holding an Advanced Technology Workshop on Packaging & Assembly of Power LEDs.

The event is being held in Dinah's Garden Hotel, Palo Alto, California on October 26 - 28, 2005.

This new Workshop promotes manufacturing and assembly of packaged power LEDs into arrays and final products. The core issues revolve around integration in assembly, packaging at the L2 and L3 levels, electrical drivers and color control, thermal management and materials for substrates and final products, device attachment processes, and testing of LED arrays.

The 2005 Workshop is expected to offer up to approximately 40 presentations by OEM and component and materials manufacturers.

The deadline for abstracts is Friday, July 15 – so you'll have to be quick!
