Compeq Remains Positive About Any-layer HDI PCB Demand


Reading time ( words)

Compeq Manufacturing remains focused on growing its business in the any-layer HDI PCB segment, despite unfavorable global trade conditions that may deter customer demand, according to Digitimes.

Any-layer HDI PCB demand remains promising for smartphones, said Compeq chairman Wu Chien at a recent shareholders meeting. Despite uncertainty arising from the US-China trade disputes and the US ban on Huawei, the adoption of any-layer PCBs among smartphones continues to grow making a positive contribution to Compeq's sales thus far in 2019.

Vertical Conductive Structures, Part 3: Design Tool Techniques

08/23/2019 | Ed Hickey and Mike Catrambone, Cadence Design Systems, and Joan Tourné, Nextgin Technology
New vertical conductive structure (VeCS) technology can reduce layer count and improve signal integrity without the need for sequential technologies. VeCS is different than traditional through-hole vias, microvias, and ELIC designs, which are more expensive and require a high number of laminations, drilling, and plating cycles to build up a reasonable number of layers.

Microvias: Links of Faith are Not Created Equally

07/18/2019 | Jerry Magera and J.R. Strickland, Motorola Solutions Inc.
Microvias connect adjacent copper layers to complete electrical paths. There are copper-filled microvias, which can be stacked to form connections beyond adjacent copper layers, and staggered microvias, which stitch adjacent copper layers with paths that meander on the layers between the microvias. This article discusses the various laser-drilled microvias and presents SEM photographs to begin the search for the root cause of weak copper interface.

Are Regional Differences in PCB Technology as Great as We Think?

05/24/2019 | Denny Fritz, Fritz Consulting
We keep hearing that Asia is all consumer and automotive electronics and North America and Europe are all high reliability/long life. The findings in IPC’s PCB Technology Trends 2018 study show that these regions are not as different as expected, and the differences we do see are interesting.
