June 2015

Dear Electronics Colleague:

Having been through another graduation season the enclosed picture cracked me up. Dust off the spider webs from your own yearbook and there will be lots of surprises!  


Please "save the date" (October 1) for this years' tech symposium (featuring some wonderful national speakers, good food and bocci ball!). This years' theme is on microelectronic assembly.

As  special treat we will also have a tutorial on how to preform a design of experiments-something that will help you in your job as a process engineer.

Finally, you can get your FREE IPC-A610 tabs here:

Have a great summer!

Trivia Contest
June 2015


Aaron Garver of Epic Technologies  was the first to answer last month's trivia question regarding  which human survived multiple battles involving the Death Star. The answer was Wedge Antilles. There were a total of 27 people who entered for the light saber drawing from last month (sounds like the question was too easy!). This months' prize are (3) collector edition Star Wars Pez dispensers.

In anticipation of the new Star Wars movie (see latest trailer from the Force Awakens here) being released, we will continue to offer Star Wars prizes for all of the monthly winners this year. This month it is a set of Star Wars charms. At the end of the year, all winners (right answer within (1) day of the question coming out, not just that months' winner) will be eligible to win a working light saber.  

Question for June 2015:

Who worked with Ratty serving as a crew member on a smuggling ship ?
