Additive Electronics: Real-world Applications


Reading time ( words)

What types of applications are discussing or adopting this new PCB technology? 

  • Wearable technology
  • Military/aerospace
  • Unusual shapes and 3D products

Tara Dunn, Omni PCB president and conference co-chair, says, “Applications that need extremely thin copper, are concerned with space and weight, and have complex pin-outs, pushing the capabilities of traditional PCB manufacturing, could utilize SAP or mSAP technology. If you’re not using this kind of technology now, the chances are good that you will be soon.” Tara will also be attending and moderating a panel discussion at the conference.

Michael Carano: A Focus on Process Control, Part 2

09/28/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
In this second half of our conversation, Michael Carano discusses some of the metrics that fabricators need to consider before investing in new processes, especially process control technologies, and some of the challenges board shops face updating brownfield sites.

Catching Up With John Johnson, New Director of Business Development at ASC

09/28/2022 | Dan Beaulieu, D.B. Management Group
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.
