Reading time ( words)

Copper-clad laminate (CCL) specialist Iteq has reported net profit surged by 40.4% from a year earlier to NT$506 million ($16.4 million) in the first quarter of 2019. The company posted consolidated revenues of NT$5.29 billion in the first quarter of 2019, down by about 7% on year, while gross margin climbed by 4.65pp to 18.36%, Digitimes reports.

Iteq noted previously that disappointing sales of consumer electronics products would affect negatively its first-quarter revenues. However, thanks to rising shipments for high-end servers and 5G base station equipment, Iteq were able to improve its product mix and enjoy profit growth during the quarter, according to Digitimes.

Multilayer organic laminates, which make up over 90% of the interconnecting substrates in electronics (standard FR-4 represents 85% of the substrates used for laminates), can develop a loss of electrical insulation resistance between two biased conductors due to conductive filament formation.

PCB Reliability: Via Design

07/12/2019 | Greg Ziraldo, Advanced Assembly
When considering the long-term reliability of a PCB, you must take into account any vias on your board. While an invaluable and essential part of board design, vias introduce weaknesses and affect solderability. This article will discuss vias, the potential concerns that are introduced into your board through their implementation, and how to minimize those concerns to acceptable levels.
