Candor Industries Produces One of the First Multilayer PCBs with Cobritherm


Reading time ( words)

Candor Industries is one of the first board shops in North American to produce a multilayer PCB with Aismalibar’s Cobritherm material. Cobritherm is thick aluminum-based substrate, cladded in ED copper foil and designed for an effective thermal dissipation and high electrical insulation.

The non-conductive via filled, four-layer, 30 mil multilayer board was based on Cobritherm 2.2W material which allows for better thermal dissipation than a standard FR-4 construction.

"Using our positive acting photo resist and simplified process philosophy, we were able to not only build an effective board, but we also saved the customer in design rev costs,” remarked Candor Industries president Yogen Patel. “We believe our innovative processes allow our customers to unlock new materials for their challenging requirements, as in project such as this." 

While the design was a four-layer board, Candor believes the process will scale well for future higher layer counts.

At the recent HKPCA and IPC Show 2017 in Shenzhen, China, I was able to interview Les Sainsbury, CEO, and Andrew Kelley, CTO, of XACT PCB, as well as Alex Stepinski, vice president of Whelen Engineering’s PCB Fab Business Unit, to discuss process evolution and technology developments in the PCB manufacturing industry.

New Year, New Equipment—Right?

02/26/2018 | Patty Goldman, I-Connect007
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.

EIPC’s Winter Conference in Lyon, France: Day 2 Review

02/20/2018 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
The first day of the conference had started and ended in the dark—a long and technically intense day! After a convivial conference dinner and a good night’s sleep we were back on the bus, this time in daylight at the slightly later time of 8:00 a.m., for the journey from downtown Lyon back to Alstom’s conference facility in Villeurbanne, and it wasn’t raining. In fact, there was even some sunshine later in the day!
