American Standard Announces License Agreement With Averatek


Reading time ( words)

Anaya Vardya, president and CEO of American Standard Circuits, announced that the company signed a licensing agreement with Averatek for its A-SAP™ patented manufacturing process.

Averatek’s A-SAP™ is an advanced manufacturing process for printed circuit board fabrication with trace and space as narrow as 15 microns. This process can dramatically reduce the space and weight of electronics systems, provide significant RF benefits and can be easily integrated with today’s traditional PCB manufacturing processes and materials.

When making the announcement, Vardya said, “American Standard Circuits’ RF expertise, in combination with our long term relationship-driven approach to customer development, will allow us to best serve the PCB design community, especially as we learn to fully understand all of the possible benefits of this emerging technology. Our goal at ASC is to always be at the forefront of technology and the A-SAP™ allows us to do that once again. We welcome the opportunity to work with the team at Averatek to redefine the future."

“In addition to the reduction in space and weight, this additive process has significant benefits with regard to high-frequency and signal integrity which makes American Standard Circuits a great partner since they are one of the industry’s leading fabricators of RF PCBs. We are pleased to have ASC as one of our first partners to use the A-SAP™ technology,” said Haris Basit, CEO of Averatek.

The big news in the industry this week was the new bill introduced to the U.S. Congress in support of the PCB manufacturing industry. The Supporting American Printed Circuit Boards Act of 2022, which was introduced by Reps. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and Blake Moore (R-UT), incentivizes “purchases of domestically produced PCBs as well as industry investments in factories, equipment, workforce training, and research and development.” The bill is a PCB-oriented complement to the semiconductor-oriented CHIPS Act of 2021.
