Things just keep getting smaller. Two years ago at Productronica 2005, MicroNanoWorld was launched to address the increasing importance of micro-electronics production. It was continued at Electronica 2006, which alternates bi-annually with Productronica. This year, micro-electronics production is set to take center stage, as “Productronica 2007: Micro-Production in the Limelight” gets under way from November 13-16, 2007 at New Munich Trade Fair Center, Munich, Germany.
