Holiday Message from President of the THPCA


Reading time ( words)

First and foremost, on behalf of the Thailand Printed Circuit Association (THPCA), we would like to convey our warmest greetings to all of you. The year 2019 has been marked by noteworthy occasions for the Thailand PCB industry and we have accomplished a significant milestone when we received official certification from the Thai government to acknowledge the THPCA establishment on October 28, 2019.

THPCA was established by Thailand PCB manufacturers who share the common goals and objectives to develop the PCB industry and make the strategic positions in the global supply chain of electronic devices.  Besides, we would like to provide a reliable source and portfolio of PCB market information, technology mapping, implement PCB production standards, in parallel with the cooperation with the global markets and human resource development.

As Thailand is playing an important role in the PCB manufacturing activities in the Southeast Asia region, it is our THPCA mission to strengthen long-term partnership with Thailand and Asian countries as well as develop the global network with WECC through collaborative events and maintaining our momentum and reinforcing the commitment.

THPCA will continue to collaborate closely with WECC members as a close business alliance and move forward to the next episodes of transforming the future of PCB industry together.  We look forward to sharing ideas and initiatives among our team in the year 2020.

Last but not least, in the midst of all the festive seasons, we would like to extend our sincere thankfulness to all WECC members for their collaboration that you have granted to THPCA.  We wish you and your family Happy Holidays and a prosperous new year 2020.

Yours sincerely,

Pitharn Ongkosit, President, Thailand Printed Circuit Association

Joe Fjelstad's Book Review: The Innovators

02/08/2021 | Joe Fjelstad, Verdant Electronics
"The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution" by Walter Isaacson is the best technology history book I have ever read, and at the same time one of the most engaging and entertaining. It is a forte of Isaacson to write biographies of great people. I have read his other books on DaVinci, Steve Jobs, Ben Franklin and Albert Einstein and found them equally brilliant. Isaacson has a number of other titles I have yet to get to in the future. He is a singularly great storyteller.

Book Excerpt: ‘Thermal Management: A Fabricator's Perspective,' Chapter 3

01/26/2021 | Anaya Vardya, American Standard Circuits
Conceptually, a metal-core board is exactly like it sounds—the metal is in the middle of the PCB sandwiched between layers on both sides. Just about any PCBA that will contain active heat-generating components can benefit when designed on a metal-core PCB. On a conventional PCB, the standard FR-4 layers are relatively poor thermal conductors, and heat is normally dissipated from active components using vias and thermal pads, as discussed earlier.
