College Park, MD  October 8, 2008 – DfR Solutions is very proud to announce that Craig Hillman, CEO & Managing Partner, will be speaking at CARTS Europe 2008, on October 20th in Helsinki, Finland.  Dr. Hillman will be discussing the development of market intelligence on passive components, which are often dominated by the more complex and expensive integrated cousins.  However, the worldwide market for passive components exceeds $30 billion and is expected to increase due to movement to multi-core and multi-die design.

As an example of this pervasive trend, single-core platforms of the previous generation of microprocessors needed an external capacitance of approximately 25uF while multi-core platforms of the upcoming generation are expected to require in excess of 250uF.  The seminar will explain how DfR’s expertise in passive component technology, in combination with Paumanok Publications’ analysis, predictions, and market intelligence, creates a powerful turn-key solution for technology and market insight.

“The capacitors required to sustain these performance requirements are on the cutting edge of technology and provide valuable high margins for a typically low margin industry,” said Dr. Hillman. “By gaining insight into the solution sets selected by major component, module, and product manufacturers, passive component supply chain can orient their production to be inline with market conditions and other OEMs can develop a better understanding of component solutions for next generation designs.”

While in the area, Dr. Hillman will be speaking at several companies in Finland and Sweden on other topics where DfR is the world leader including: failure analysis, Pb-free reliability assurance and prediction, and design for reliability tools and knowledge.

Dr. Hillman has published over 75 papers in such areas and has presented to more than 150 companies and organizations worldwide.
