The Taiwan Printed Circuit Association (TPCA) Show is now on its 18th year. This year's event will feature more than 1,400 booths and 400 global brands from over 12 countries. The TPCA Show 2017 will be held from October 25 to 27 at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Hall in Taiwan.
With the iPhone 7 and 8 chip requirements, the MSAP (Modified Semi Additive Process) process application has become the focus of the PCB industry. Taiwan has the best PCB technology and processing products, and we believe that the MSAP process in HDI "any-layer" PCB will be among the key highlights of the show.

The Institute of Circuit Technology returned to Meriden, traditionally regarded as the centre of England, for its Annual General Meeting, which was followed by a technical seminar of five presentations, introduced as ever by Technical Director Bill Wilkie.

Congratulations! Your process development team has completed its DOEs and is convinced they are ready to scale up. The facilities crew has found space for your new operation or, even better, your manufacturing team will have a newly-built building in which to locate the project.

This month, we will discuss the equipment purchasing decision-making process. How many of you can recall the earliest “dippy dunk” PCB shops, so-called because that’s exactly how it was done? There were no conveyorized lines, no automatic hoists, no load/unload stations, maybe not even a lab for analyzing the plating baths.
