Nordic HDI 2015 with Happy Holden – Sponsored by Isola

February 5-6, 2015
9:00am – 5:00pm
Anker Hotel, Oslo Norway


Join Azitech ApS for a unique PCB seminar focusing on leading edge High Density Interconnect (HDI) technology. This 2-day seminar will take place in Oslo at Anker Hotel the 5-6 February, 2015. Isola is pleased to be a sponsor at this event taught by HDI guru, Happy Holden.

Happy Holden’s experience with PCB fabrication and especially HDI is one of a kind. Staying updated on your HDI skills in Europe, can be quite challenging since the majority of PCB fabricators are located in the Far East. It is therefore very important to the engineering PCB force of Europe to seize opportunities like these to get their skills updated. These are comments from Robert Ludvigsen, CEO of Azitech, a leading PCB trader in Europe. They believe that this course should be standard curriculum to all PCB engineers in Europe. Sign-up now to make sure that you are up-to-date with the leading edge technology of HDI.

Happy Holden teaches these classes at the IPC APEX Conference each year and every other year at Conferences in Taiwan and Singapore. Happy has also publicized THE HDI HANDBOOK, which will be used as reference appendix during the Seminar. We recommend you to download his free HDI BOOK prior to the seminar start.

For this 2-day event, Happy Holden will take you step-by-step through the universe of progressing HDI. He will introduce you to HDI and its unique design opportunities and with his vast experience from Foxconn, he will teach you how to use HDI correctly and efficiently in your products.
