IEEE Components, Packaging & Manufacturing Technology Society
The IEEE Components, Packaging & Manufacturing Technology Society was created from a merger between the IEEE Parts, Hybrids, and Packaging Group and the IEEE Manufacturing Technology Group in 1978. The IEEE Parts, Hybrids, and Packaging Group was originally formed in September 28, 1954 as the IRE Professional Group on Production Techniques, which changed its name several times. The evolution of the group's names is as follows: the IRE Professional Group on Product Engineering and Production (1960), the Professional Technical Group on Product Engineering and Production (1963), IEEE Product Engineering and Production Group (1964), Parts, Materials, and Packaging Group (1965), and the IEEE Parts, Hybrids, and Packaging Group (1971).
Fields of Interest
The IEEE CPMT Society's mission is to "provide a forum for the dissemination of technical information within its assigned areas. CPMT's fields of interest encompass the materials science, chemical processes, reliability technology, mathematical modelling, education and training utilized in the design and production of discretes, hybrids, and electronic packaging".
The society publishes a range of notable peer-reviewed transactions and other publications  including:
- IEEE Transactions on Components & Packaging Technologies
- IEEE Transactions on Advanced Packaging
- IEEE Transactions on Electronics Packaging Manufacturing
- IEEE Transactions on Semiconductor Manufacturing
- IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology
- Circuits and Devices Magazine
IEEE CPMT sponsors a number of internationally attended conferences on an annual basis that focus on its field of interest.
