The mission of HDP User Group International Inc., is to drive innovations in the Electronics Industry reducing cost and time to market through active collaborations that solve critical and emerging problems for the benefit of the membership.
HDP User Group is a non-profit trade organization that offers memberships to companies involved in the supply chain of manufacturing products that utilize high-density electronic packages.

HDP User Group was founded on the premise that by working together and sharing the risks and rewards of implementing new technology, all the members, and the industry as well, would accomplish more at a lower cost than going it alone. Over 20 years of successful operation, as well as continued growth in both membership and projects, has proven that premise to be true. The leverage in each HDP User Group project is so large that just one project can justify the cost of membership.

HDP is a member driven organization. The members decide what technical areas are pursued and what issues are investigated. This structure keeps us focused on the most important issues affecting the electronics manufacturing Industry. The organization works with other industry consortia, universities and government agencies to develop the industry awareness of its project results and to support its membership’s goals.

Some of the most successful companies in our industry today have discovered the economies of scale and leveraging that pre-competitive cooperative R&D offers. By joining together with the electronics supply chain, other members of the supply chain, and yes, even their competitors; sharing scarce resources and expertise to address issues of common interest; they have resolved major problems in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost it would take to do it alone. Cooperative R&D is not the only tool that a modern company needs to be competitive. They must employ many different strategies and options in today’s extremely competitive marketplace. But cooperative R&D can offer significant advantages in addressing supply chain wide, global technical issues that all electronics companies face today. It is a tool that can probably be found in the toolbox of many of your competitors.
