Due to ongoing concerns of Coronavirus (COVID-19), SMTA is taking precautionary health and safety measures and has decided to reschedule ICEHET to early summer 2021 in Markham, Ontario, Canada. More details to be announced. 

International Conference for Electronics Hardware Enabling Technologies (ICEHET)

Formerly the International Conference on Soldering & Reliability (ICSR)



Electronics products are becoming ubiquitous in many aspects of modern life, including smart devices, internet of everything, wearables and self-driving vehicles, as well as the more established (but still growing areas) of communications, entertainment, medical devices, lighting, automotive, avionics and computing. The growth is largely driven by the continued increase in density of integrated circuits, the applications that utilize the greater functionality, and by steadily decreasing power consumption and cost.


Conference Chair, Jason Keeping, P. Eng., and Mayor of Markham open the 2019 Conference.
