The International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI) has launched a HFR (halogenated flame retardant)-Free Leadership Program. The program will act as an umbrella for several projects, including a technical evaluation of key electrical and mechanical properties of HFR-free - or low halogen - materials to ensure reliability and performance of replacement materials. Projects will also assess technology readiness and supply chain capabilities.There are 22 companies participating in the program, including OEMs such as Cisco, Dell and HP; EMS/ODM suppliers such as Celestica and Flextronics; and suppliers such as Intel.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
