Reading time ( words)

Conductor Analysis Technologies, Inc. announces the release of new IPC Process Capability, Quality and Reliability (PCQR2) test patterns.

The new patterns are available in 8-, 10-, 12-, 18-, and 24 -ayer designs and provide more insight into complex microvia structures, including stacked and staggered, than previous designs. Additionally, the new patterns require only 12 panels to be manufactured per submission, a 20% reduction.
