American Standard Circuits Launches Fusion Bonding for RF Boards


Reading time ( words)

American Standard Circuits is now offering fusion bonding of PTFE-based materials. PTFE material fusion bonding uses high temperature (≥700°F/371°C) to bond PTFE directly to the copper circuitry and surrounding PTFE. This achieves bonding of the core materials without the use of a separate bonding agent acting as a bond ply or pre-preg.

With fusion bonding, you achieve an entirely isotropic package for stripline circuitry. This may be done utilizing either a PTFE core with copper removed or with a special uncompressed PTFE ply which acts as a filler/bond ply but consists of the same base material as the rest of the PTFE cores within the package. It is this uniformity and the reduction or elimination of DK variation within the package that allows the unparalleled performance and design accuracy.

When discussing the introduction of fusion bonding, President and CEO Anaya Vardya said, “Over the past several years we have expended a great deal of time, money and man power to assume a leadership role in the RF microwave market. The development of fusion bonding technology represents another step towards providing our customers with a complete RF microwave solution. Our team here at American Standard Circuits has done a great job in helping us to gain the technological capability to attain our market leadership position.”

05/16/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
I recently spoke with PCB Technologies’ Jeff De Serrano, Yaniv Maydar, and Alon Menache about their new venture, InPack. They explain their plans to focus on advanced packaging, miniaturization, and other high-end technology, with much faster time to market, and they offer a view of the global market as well.

An Inside Look at an Indian PCB Manufacturer

03/24/2022 | Dan Beaulieu, D.B. Management Group
As a student of the printed circuit board industry, I am always interested in learning more about companies all over the world. When I connected with Abhay Doshi, managing director of Fine-Line Circuits Ltd. in India, I welcomed the opportunity to learn more about him, his company, and the Indian PCB business as a whole—it was all that, and so much more. Here’s what I learned.

EIPC Technical Snapshot: A European Roundup

03/02/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Although it was originally proposed to hold a one-day face-to-face EIPC conference in Frankfurt, travel restrictions in Germany made this impractical. But the Technical Snapshot webinar format has proved so successful that it was decided to run an extended version as an alternative—two sessions, with three presentations each. It worked extremely well. The carefully selected program on February 23 featured excellent speakers, and seamless organisation added up to an outstanding event.
