Electronics Manufacturing Technology Award
- To recognize major contributions to Electronic Manufacturing Technology in fields encompassed by the EPS.
- US$3,000 and Certificate
- Basis for Judging: Contributions may include technical development of, or management (directing) of major new electronic manufacturing processes; significantly increasing yield and/or reliability of established manufacturing processes, etc. Contributions must be sustained and continuing over a period of at least 15 and preferably 20 years. Work in the management of EPS conferences or its BoG may be contributory but not sufficient to receive the award.
- Membership in IEEE or the EPS is not required.
