TPCA: Global HDI PCB Market Surpasses $10B in Value

Reading time ( words)

The worldwide market for high-density interconnect (HDI) PCBs came to more than $10 billion in production value in 2018, with Taiwan accounting for about 40% of the total value, according to data compiled by Taiwan Printed Circuit Association (TPCA).

Compeq Manufacturing, Tripod Technology, Unimicron Technology and Zhen Ding Technology are among the major Taiwan-based HDI PCB manufacturers.

Sales generated from the smartphone sector accounted for as high as nearly 80% of Taiwan's overall HDI PCB industry output value, TPCA indicated. With smartphones being the single largest target application, Taiwan's HDI PCB sector remains an oligopoly where only a few large-scale firms are capable of winning orders from smartphone vendors, TPCA said.

Nolan Johnson talks with Brian Hess of Calumet Electronics and Mike Vinson of Averatek about the new, insertable additive processes that the companies are working on together to help factories running primarily subtractive processes to quickly convert to very high-density interconnect (HDI) features, including trace and space from 2.5-mil line and space to 1-mil line and space and below.

Vertical Conductive Structures, Part 4: Tuning Your Signal Performance

11/18/2019 | Joan Tourné, NextGIn Technology BV
The objective of this article is to demonstrate the possibility of using a stitching element as an alternative to the point-to-point connections that are used with traditional via technology. Point-to-point connections have the best performance in terms of signal integrity (one via less in the connection that distorts the signal). A via is mainly a capacitive element that causes signal loss/ dispersion.

Multilayer Press Technology Using Magnetism to Produce Lamination Heat

11/11/2019 | Victor Lazaro Gallego, Chemplate Materials
A revolutionary concept in multilayer press technology has been developed that uses electromagnetic energy to heat the existing stainless-steel separator plates with a never-before dreamed-of accuracy and precision. The heating and cooling systems—embedded within a robust hydraulic press inside a vacuum chamber design—are controlled using a temperature feedback loop that guarantees perfect fidelity between the press recipe and the press result.
