CCI Canadian Circuits Supporting Medical Equipment Manufacturing During COVID-19 Pandemic

Reading time ( words)

CCI Canadian Circuits Inc., the leading manufacturer of printed circuit boards in North America, announced the successful completion of a project with StarFish Medical for their Ventilator project. In last couple of months, the company has worked with many customers to deliver rush projects, especially the ones manufacturing medical equipment.

StarFish Medical is Canada’s largest medical device design, development and contract manufacturing company located in Victoria, B.C. StarFish Medical is the chosen manufacturer for the Canadian Emergency Ventilators program launched by the Federal Government. CCI Canadian Circuits team worked round the clock to produce the HDI PCB prototype for this project. 

Praveen Arya, CEO CCI Canadian Circuits, says, “We are proud to be associated with the Canadian Emergency Ventilators Program, although in a small way. Over the years we have worked behind the scenes to deliver printed circuit boards for several high-stake projects, but this one beats all. As a Canadian company, I am proud of everyone involved in the fight against COVID-19 and thank StarFish Medical for choosing us, a local PCB manufacturer as their prototype partner for a project of national importance.” 

 “We have worked with CCI Canadian Circuits on many projects in the past. When we needed to get a prototype done for the ventilators program, we knew we could trust and count on the CCI team to deliver high quality PCB on-time. They went above and beyond on prototypes for the Canadian Emergency Ventilators program,” says John Walmsley, Executive Vice President, Strategic Relationships, at StarFish Medical.

“It was a challenge to meet the customer’s rush requirements with COVID-19 affecting our work schedules but our team took up the challenge and leveraged our rich experience to produce the HDI prototype for this project on time,” says Tamendra Thapa, Operations Manager, CCI Canadian Circuits.

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

05/13/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
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.

The Carbon Footprint of HDI: Direct Metallization vs. Electroless Copper

04/14/2022 | Jordan Kologe and Leslie Kim, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
As the electronics supply chain contends with the struggles of moving out of the pandemic and into a new normal, it is increasingly obvious that a new normal will be one with sustainability and resource conservation as the top priority. Over the past year, we have seen printed circuit board manufacturers encounter challenges associated with environmental regulations, water and power outages, and pressures from the supply chain to reduce environmental footprints. From the perspective of a board fabricator, especially one that specializes in HDI, a highly resource-intensive step in the process of making a printed circuit board is the primary metallization step. All circuit boards that have multiple layers go through such a primary metallization, which is either electroless copper or direct metallization (DM).

Nolan Johnson speaks with Will Marsh, vice president of TTM Technologies and president of the Printed Circuit Board Association of America, about the work the PCBAA has been doing in Washington, D.C., to get the industry better recognized by the country’s decision-makers. Marsh is optimistic, not only about the companies and individuals joining the effort, but in the recognition by Capitol Hill to secure the nation’s defense systems.
