Mission

August 28, 2015

Technical Committee 12 deals with topics relating to microwave interconnects and packaging and includes questions of materials, modeling, standards, and manufacturing. The committee defines a package as a structure that supports and interconnects disparate technologies. This definition covers a broad variety of structures ranging from the common surface mount package, which supports a semiconductor die and interconnects it with a printed circuit board, to microwave-photonic packaging which supports both electrical and optical technologies and their interconnections.
