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.

Calumet Electronics and Averatek Team Up on A-SAP

12/02/2019 | Nolan Johnson, PCB007
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.

Decreasing Bend Radius and Improving Reliability- Part II

11/22/2019 | Kelsey Smith, All Flex
Many of the issues that arise when using a flex circuit come from a lack of knowledge about how to properly design one, especially when the circuit is required to bend. Many novices will design a circuit that calls for bending the flex in too tight of a bend radius, which can cause damage to the circuit and lower the reliability of the end product. This series of articles will focus on the seven key aspects to consider when designing for maximum durability and maximum “flexibility.”
