Description : The sequence of events which led to the writing of this book started at a seminar on Manufacturing Technology in the Electronics Industry given by the Institution of Production Engineers in 1987. The seminar identified that the field of manufacturing engineering for the electronics industry was effectively missing from the vast majority of production engineering degree courses. The reason for this was that production engineering departments typically spring from mechanical engineering departments. This leads to a mechanical bias in the practical aspects of such courses. The consequence of this was that electronics companies could not recruit graduates with both relevant production engineering and electronic engineering backgrounds. This necessitated either recruiting production engineering graduates and giving them the necessary electronic engineering training, or giving production engineering training to electronic engineering graduates. A consequence of the lack of courses in a subject is that there is also a lack of relevant textbooks in the area, as most textbooks are intended to tie into courses. In the field of manufacturing technology for the electronics industry, existing textbooks tend to be highly specialized and mainly concerned with the fabrication of semiconductor devices.
Description : This volume provides a comprehensive introduction to electronic technology, products, and manufacturing processes.Reviews principles of production and electronics fundamentals (electronic components, interconnections, printed wiring boards, soldering and solderability); explains automatic assembly (automation, leaded component insertion, and surface-mount device placement); discusses life-cycle engineering (design for assembly, quality and reliability, testability, and environmental stress screening); and explores manufacturing systems (facilities and materials handling, production and inventory control, production economics).For electrical or industrial engineers interested in electronics manufacturing.

Description : This book, and its companion, Technology, Competitiveness and the State, examine and evaluate Malaysian industrialization in terms of its experience of and prospects for industrial technology development. The focus is on the development of Malaysia's technological-industrial base from a sector and firm-specific perspective, including the role of foreign multinationals in this process. Industrial Technology Development in Malaysia, provides a valuable analysis of the technological development of a Newly Industrializing Country and reflects on whether existing development strategies can be maintained in the wake of the financial crises sweeping the East Asian economies.
Description : Taiwan's electronics industry, especially the semiconductor and information products sectors, is characterized by rapid growth and high potential. This book investigates the past performance, current status, and future development of this industry, providing engineers with important data. Corporate business planners and electronics managers will find helpful information for decision making regarding joint ventures and alliances with Taiwanese manufacturers.
Description : First published in 1990, this book provides an overview of the global distribution of the electronics industry and the structural factors which promoted this distribution by the end of the 1980s. Regarded as a ‘flagship’ sector in both advanced and developing countries, the electronics industry is encouraged by governments everywhere. Covering both the civilian and the military sides of the industry, Professor Todd reflects on the future of civilian electronics in the light of its global segmentation, and hints at the fundamental role of governments in the unfolding of both civilian and defence-electronics developments. He also endorses the overwhelming significance of strategies being played by electronics enterprises in both the USA and Japan.
