Presenter:

Dr. Bill Cardoso, CEO, Creative Electron, Inc., San Marcos, CA


Abstract:

The impulse to break a new gadget to "see what's inside" is often the first sign someone will become an engineer. However, modern teardowns go far beyond pure curiosity: they provide us critical insights into the nature and construction of these devices. In this talk we will cover the teardown of several IoT and wearable devices, from the early Blackberries to the Apple Watch, to understand how the SMT industry has changed. These findings will also help us forecast where we are going as a community by discussing miniaturization and packaging, automation and labor force location, device features, and other important topics. These are key issues we need to address to keep U.S. SMT manufacturing relevant.


Presenter Bio:

Bill Cardoso started his first company in Brazil at age 17 and sold it when invited by the US Dept. of Energy to work at Fermi National Lab in nuclear and high energy physics research. After a 10-year career as Dept. Head for Systems Engineering, Bill moved from Chicago to California to start Creative Electron. True to the American Dream, Creative Electron quickly grew from Bill's garage to the largest US manufacturer of x-ray machines for the electronics industry. Starting with an associate degree at age 13, Bill has BS, MS, and PhD degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering and an MBA from The University of Chicago. Bill is the president of the SMTA San Diego chapter and member of SMTAI Technical committee, SMTA Counterfeit and LED Conference, CMSE, SPIE Photonics, and the IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium. An IEEE Senior member and author of over 120 technical publications, owner of a few patents, he is a frequent speaker at technical conferences.
