Taiwan CCL Seeking Presence in 5G Infrastructure Market


Reading time ( words)

Despite US trade sanctions against Huawei likely to slow the installation progress of 5G base stations in China, Taiwan’s CCL (copper clad laminate) suppliers are still actively rolling out high-frequency and high-speed CCL for PCBs needed for 5G infrastructure in a bid to boost their market shares, Digitimes reports.

Taiwan CCL makers, including ITEQ, Taiwan Union Technology and Ventec International are now technologically on a par with their international counterparts such as Rogers of the US and Panasonic in Japan in the production of high-frequency and high-speed CCL materials, inspiring them to cash in on huge business opportunities from 5G applications.

It’s always good to catch up with old friends, especially when you can start working together. I recently spoke with my friend John Johnson, who has joined American Standard Circuits as the director of business development. At ASC, John will be using the Averatek A-SAP process that he was previously involved with. He shares some of his background and provides insight on the best ways to use this semi-additive PCB fabrication process that opens the capability window for forming trace and space.

A Focus on Process Control, Part 1

09/27/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Michael Carano is a noted subject matter expert with respect to process control, electroplating and metallization technology, surface finishing, and reliability. So, it was only natural that we sat down to talk about mechanizing an existing facility given today’s fickle environment. Will any of the CHIPS funding trickle down to bare board fabrication? What process can be adjusted on the factory floor? The focus needs to be more than just on manufacturing and getting work out the door, he says, but also process control.
