Rename this forum

I believe that this forum should be renamed Electronic Packaging Design engineering from Packaging Design engineering.  I think that it would be more clear to the user community that the subject matter deals with electronics design not the design of boxes and shrinkwrap.


RE: Rename this forum

wasn't once called that?

RE: Rename this forum

A friend of mine has a degree in package engineering, e.g. shipping containers and such.  

The activity discussed here is distinct from that, and is usually called "electronic packaging", which is accurate but has too many syllables for my taste.

If it hadn't already been used in steam locomotives, I'd nominate 'Smoke Box'.
How about 'Smoke In/ Heat Out'?

RE: Rename this forum

Having worked in the industry for a few decades now, I'd go with simply "electronic packaging" and drop the limiting word "design."   

RE: Rename this forum

Given that there are only two forums with "Packaging" in their names, it would hardly seem to be a problem of confusion.  

In any case, my personal observations have been that people will mis-post, regardless of how plausible the forum title is, and if they do mis-post, you can certainly send them on their merry way to the other packaging forum.
