Microelectronics Reliability & Qualification Working Meeting: December 10-11, 2013
HiREV Industry Day: December 12, 2013
New Location: The Aerospace Corporation, El Segundo, Calif.

The Microelectronics Reliability and Qualification Working Meeting (MRQW) provides a forum for the open discussion of microelectronics reliability and qualification issues for microelectronics targeted for use in space systems. The 2013 format will consist of multiple technical sessions and a keynote speaker to open the meeting. In addition, as has been the trend in recent years, the technical sessions will include several presentations of work supported by the National High Reliability Electronics Virtual (HiREV) Center program.

The MRQW program provides subjects of interest to professionals with all levels of expertise. This working meeting also offers many industry networking opportunities, including a welcome reception Tuesday night.

Who should attend this working meeting? Reliability engineers, radiation-effects engineers, microelectronic technology developers, those working on microelectronic parts procurement for space systems, and anyone interested in the reliability and qualification of microelectronics for space applications. Expert invited speakers will cover the latest results or work in progress in different areas of microelectronics device reliability and qualification methodologies including:

• Advanced technologies reliability issues
Emerging carbon-based electronics
• Product qualification methodology
• Advanced space microprocessors and memories
• RF, analog, and mixed-signal device and design issues
• Space radiation effects
• FPGA reliability and qualification issues
• Hardness-by-design
• Designing in reliability
• Reliability for extreme environments
• Advanced packaging issues
• Failure analysis
• Optoelectronics 

Returning in 2013:  HiREV Industry Day, Thursday, Dec. 12.  Introduced in 2010, the HiREV program is a government program led by the Air Force Research Laboratory. Its focus is on developing the necessary understanding of emerging electronic device technology reliability issues and the underlying technical foundation to provide current and future U.S. space programs with the necessary knowledge to qualify and insert deep sub-micron electronics device technologies. The 2013 HiREV Industry Day is intended to bring government, industry, and academia together to forge a collaborative, virtual electronics reliability team of experts who will ensure that space programs achieve mission success. Participants will leave the session with an understanding of the HiREV approach to achieving that goal and what their role will be within the HiREV team.

NOTE: MRQW registration is a prerequisite to attend this Thursday session. It is open to U.S. citizens and permanent resident aliens only and requires an additional registration fee. All attendees must present a valid photo ID upon check-in.
