Whether it’s the endless wonders of Tesla or a multibillion-dollar recall of GM’s Bolts, electric vehicles (EVs) are in the news almost every day now for reasons both good and bad. But electric vehicles have actually been around since the 1800s, so why the sudden interest?

This EV roundtable will discuss the emerging EV market: why it hit an inflection point and how we should be responding. We’ll discuss opportunities for business growth and, more importantly, our responsibility as industry leaders to be good stewards in PCBA for automotive applications.
Come join SMTAI keynote speaker, Loren McDonald, and industry experts, Debbie Carboni and Brian O’Leary, for an educational and lively exchange on the emerging market of electric vehicles.
