Conductor Analysis Technologies Releases New IPC PCQR2 Test Patterns


Reading time ( words)

Conductor Analysis Technologies, Inc. announces the release of new IPC Process Capability, Quality and Reliability (PCQR2) test patterns. The patterns were developed by CAT with guidance from the IPC-D36 subcommittee and are used by OEMs to document and compare the capabilities of printed circuit board manufacturers worldwide.

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.

Decreasing Bend Radius and Improving Reliability- Part II

11/22/2019 | Kelsey Smith, All Flex
Many of the issues that arise when using a flex circuit come from a lack of knowledge about how to properly design one, especially when the circuit is required to bend. Many novices will design a circuit that calls for bending the flex in too tight of a bend radius, which can cause damage to the circuit and lower the reliability of the end product. This series of articles will focus on the seven key aspects to consider when designing for maximum durability and maximum “flexibility”.
