Datest announces that it will exhibit at the SMTA Silicon Valley Expo, scheduled to take place Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2019 at the Bestronics Box Build Facility in San Jose, CA. Datest is sponsoring the tote bags and refreshment breaks. The event is free to attend and includes a complimentary lunch. Event speakers will present on topics related to Industry 4.0, 5G Technology, Component/System Reliability and Cleaning, and their implications for advanced manufacturing.  There will be a gathering for students and young professionals (SYPs) interested in electronics manufacturing as a career path. Representatives from the engineering departments at San Jose State University (SJSU) and Santa Clara University (SCU) also will be on hand to discuss current research, internships, and career opportunities. For more information or to register for the event, visit https://www.smta.org/expos/attendee_reg.cfm.

Datest now features four imaging systems, including three with partial or full CT scanning capability, for service to industry, government, academia, and affiliated parties.
