Reading time ( words)

Ventec is pleased to announce that it has entered into a global strategic alliance with leading interconnect solutions provider, BizLink Holding Inc., and Footprintku Inc., an online EDA library and digital transformation services provider for electronic components. This alliance is formed to provide a solution that boosts product development process efficiency and shortens development and time-to-market.

BizLink has long been a supplier of key components to the IT industry, including connectors and cables. The company is experienced in new product introduction (NPI) as well as in system integration, manufacturing, and in assembly.

BizLink’s Chairman, Roger Liang, said, "For the design of electronic products, the trend is for thinner, lighter, and aesthetically pleasing products whilst maintaining functionality and compatibility. This has prompted the demand for rapid and frequent updates of components and product styles. The ability to quickly develop products to respond to market changes has become the key to success."

Ventec International’s Chairman, Tony Lau, pointed out, "What the market needs is a platform that integrates the advantages of upstream components, mid-section design, and back-end manufacturing. The creation of such a platform, we knew, would greatly help accelerate industrial innovation." Footprintku Inc.’s Chairman, YC Hwang, continued, "In response, we propose a cloud platform using the exclusive AI and digital transformation technology of Footprintku.com to integrate the resources of all three companies. The result is a one-stop service, making it possible for product developers to quickly and efficiently find the best components and quality suppliers for their product R&D and design change stages."

This alliance is built upon Footprintku’s cloud database for electronic components as well as BizLink’s solutions and Ventec International’s materials. It integrates the capabilities of new product introduction (NPI), design services (ODM), and manufacturing assembly (EMS). This alliance will reduce the cost of and time in searching for electronic components for product developers. Furthermore, it will accelerate product evolution and facilitate industrial innovation by connecting highly flexible and customized electronic industry supply chain partners.

The alliance was officially announced at a press conference held at the Grand Hyatt Taipei on February 26, 2021.

Why Gold Layer Thickness in ENIG Matters for Soldering

02/07/2023 | Britta Schafsteller, Mario Rosin, Gustavo Ramos, and Joe McGurran, Atotech
The main task of the final finish is to protect the copper pad from tarnishing or oxidation while simultaneously keeping the surface active for the assembly. Electroless nickel/immersion gold (ENIG) is a widely accepted finish in the market that provides a good solderability and capability for Al-wire bonding. A main function of the gold layer is to prevent the oxidation of the nickel layer.

Preventing De-wetting Defects In Immersion Tin Soldering

01/04/2023 | Britta Schafsteller, Atotech
Immersion tin is well accepted as a high-reliability final finish in the industry. Due to its excellent corrosion resistance, it exhibits major market shares, particularly in the automotive industry. During the soldering process, an intermetallic compound (IMC) is formed between copper and tin. One remaining concern in the industry is the potential impact of the IMC on the solderability of the final finish. In this article, typical failure modes in soldering immersion tin are described and correlated to potential root causes for the defects.

Candor: UHDI Under Development

12/21/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Candor Industries is a PCB fabricator investing in UHDI fabrication capabilities in Canada. To support advanced packaging, as well as the current pace of IC process shrinks, PCB fabrication capabilities must shrink to keep up. Sunny Patel, Candor’s technical sales manager, brings us up to speed on what Candor has learned in their journey to add UHDI. What we gain from this interview is that, while certainly not insignificant, the stretch to add UHDI may be not as far as one might think.
