Sunstone Circuits Participates in Successful Fall Trade Shows

Reading time ( words)

Sunstone Circuits, a printed circuit board (PCB) solutions provider for prototypes, medium-volume and production quantities, recently exhibited at PCB West and was a Gold Sponsor Presenter at NEDME.

NEDME, The NW Electronics Design & Manufacturing Expo, is held in Sunstone’s own backyard every October in Beaverton, Oregon.  Started over 15 years ago and originally called Octoberbest, NEDME has welcomed Sunstone as one of many exhibitors from Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. Produced and managed by The Oregon Electronics Manufacturers Association (EMA), this event connects local businesses with engineers, buyers, and reps in a fun and educational way.  Sunstone’s own Mathew Stevenson contributed as a conference session speaker, focusing on PCB design pitfalls. 

Meeting and talking with customers face to face is enlightening—a chance to clarify expectations and update customers with new and existing practices and capabilities.

“Through a conversation with a recent customer, we came to realize that not everyone knows that Sunstone can build PCBs up to 14 layers, produce higher production quantities and that we also hold certifications with ITAR, ISO, RoHS and more. Face to face is a perfect way to update these customers,” said Sean Hulin, marketing and sales manager.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

03/05/2021 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
A perennial and yet irregular category on the popular game show Jeopardy is “potpourri.” My dad, as I was growing up, pronounced the word as “pot-poury.” It wasn’t until I was a sophomore in college that my girlfriend’s mom—who had a penchant for a soupcon of French euphemism in her tête-à-têtes—pronounced the word properly: “po-pu-ree.” Such are the risks of growing up just a bit rural.

Chapter 2 Excerpt from the Book ‘Thermal Management: A Fabricator's Perspective’

12/21/2020 | Anaya Vardya, American Standard Circuits
Insulated metal PCBs (IMPCB) or metal-clad PCBs (MCPCB) are a thermal management design that utilizes a layer of solid metal to dissipate the heat generated by the various components on the PCBs. When metal is attached to a PCB, the bonding material can either be thermally conductive but electrically isolative (IMPCBs or MCPCBs), or in the case of RF/microwave circuits, the bonding material may be both electrically and thermally conductive. The reason that RF designers usually have the bonding material thermally and electrically conductive is that they are using this not only as a heat sink but also as part of the ground layer. The design considerations are quite different for these different applications.
