FUTURECAR 2017 – November 8-10, 2017 – Atlanta, GA

Future car electronics such as autonomous driving, in-car smartphone-like infotainment, privacy and security, and all-electric cars, present unparalleled research, development, manufacturing, education and marketing opportunities. They require new paradigms in devices and packaging particularly in materials, tools, processes, substrates, packages, components and integrated functions in R&D and in manufacturing. Georgia Tech and Semi see unprecedented technical challenges and opportunities in electrical, mechanical and thermal designs, and new digital, RF, radar, LiDAR, camera, millimeter wave, high-power and high-temp technologies.
