PCB Demand Positive from Networking Device Segment in 2H19


Reading time ( words)

Despite growing economic uncertainty triggered by the US-China trade dispute, most Taiwan-based PCB makers still expect demand for rigid PCBs for networking device applications, particularly for switch and router products, to remain robust in the second half of 2019, Digitimes reported.

Rigid PCB suppliers, including Tripod Technology, HannStar Board, Gold Circuit Electronics, Apex International and Advanced Printed Circuit Board (APCB), have deepened their deployments in the networking device sectors for a long period, along with the clusters of Taiwan's IT industry. In addition to supplying rigid PCBs for switches, routers and other networking devices, some makers are ready to kick off volume production of related PCB products supporting 400G transmission specifications.

Institute of Circuit Technology Spring Seminar 2020

03/11/2020 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Back to Meriden, the nominal centre of England where the daffodils were blooming. A good crowd made it to the spring seminar that followed the Annual General Meeting of the Institute of Circuit Technology (ICT), with five specialist presentations and excellent opportunities to network with their peers in the industry. Pete Starkey shares his overview of the event.

Flexible Circuit Design Guidelines

03/05/2020 | Flexible Circuit Technologies
Flexible circuit designs share many of the same challenges of rigid PCB designs, but there are also many differences and additional challenges. The very nature of a flex circuit being able to bend and flex make it as much a mechanical device as an electrical one. This creates a special set of requirements unique to flexible circuitry. Understanding how these requirements interact will allow the PCB designer to create a flex circuit that balances the electrical and mechanical features into a reliable, cost-effective interconnect solution.
