Reading time ( words)

 TTM Technologies, Inc., a leading global printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturer, focusing on quick-turn and volume production of technologically complex PCBs, backplane assemblies and electro-mechanical solutions, as well as a global designer and manufacturer of high-frequency radio frequency (RF) and microwave components and assemblies, has announced the opening of a new, North American, advanced technology center in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.

The grand opening ceremony took place on February 18, 2020, and included customers, suppliers, local government officials and the many TTM individuals from across North America that helped make this significant event possible.

This revitalized 40,000 sq. ft. facility, located at 850 Technology Way, offers a wide variety of some of the most advanced PCB manufacturing solutions offered in North America today, including the ability to manufacture substrate-like PCBs. TTM acquired the assets of i3 Electronics, Inc. (i3) in June, 2019, and shortly thereafter began work to quickly retool this facility which started production in January, 2020. The new state-of-the-art facility follows cleanroom protocols throughout the entire facility in order to achieve the necessary yields for the technical nature of the products that are manufactured in the facility.

Tom Edman, President and CEO of TTM stated, “TTM is proud to host this grand opening and announce this exciting news. The efforts of our employees to rapidly transform this building and successfully transfer the i3 production and technology from New York to Wisconsin was remarkable. The resulting new Advanced Technology Center is now one of the most advanced microelectronics production facilities in North America, and allows TTM to offer more advanced technological solutions to its customer base in North America. This stands as a true testament to TTM’s commitment to technology leadership for our customers, supporting them with enabling advanced technology solutions around the globe.”

Time, Space, Structure, and Model Analysis of CCL Price Increase

04/19/2021 | Hu Yang, Zhongtai Securities Research Center
According to the CCL Association, copper foil accounts for the largest proportion of raw materials (traditional CCL uses epoxy resin, glass fiber cloth and copper as raw materials). Copper foil in thin plate accounts for about 30% of the overall cost; in thick plate copper accounts for 50%. In CCL production, using Shengyi Technology and Chaohua Technology as examples, the cost of raw materials accounts for about 88% of the total cost, with labor accounting for about 4%. Other costs such as equipment depreciation account for about 8%.

PCB Sourcing Using PCQR2

03/30/2021 | Al Block, Naji Norder, and Chris Joran, National Instruments
In a global market, it is often difficult to determine the best PCB suppliers for your technology needs, while also achieving the lowest costs for your products. Considering each PCB supplier has their own niche in terms of equipment, process, and performance, uniform test data from the IPC-9151D Process Capability, Quality, and Relative Reliability (PCQR2) Benchmark Test Standard can help find the right source for the board based on its specific technology requirements.
