Taiflex Lowers 2019 Revenue Guidance on Unclear Order Visibility


Reading time ( words)

Taiwan-based Taiflex Scientific, a supplier of flexible copper-clad laminates (FCCL), has projected 2019 revenues to fall over 10% from 2018 due to unclear order visibility for the second half of the year, compared to flat revenue performance predicted early this year.

Taiflex's second-quarter revenues declined by 12.89% on year to NT$2.078 billion ($66.7 million), but it managed to score net earnings of NT$281 million, compared to losses in the first quarter. Its revenues for the first half of the year plunged 21.31% on year to NT$3.45 billion, with net earnings of NTY$274 million representing an annual rise of 7.52%.

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.

Solder Mask Curing: UV Bump Overview

08/19/2019 | Nikolaus Schubkegel
Ultraviolet (UV) bump, also called UV cure, is a processing step in which the solder mask pattern is irradiated with ultraviolet and infrared light. This step is performed with special equipment that is built as a continuous flow system, which consists of a conveyor belt and tubular UV lamps mounted above and below the belt. Read on to find out more about this process.

Avoiding CAF Failures at the IPC High-reliability Forum
