Eltek Ltd., a global manufacturer and supplier of technologically advanced solutions in the field of printed circuit boards, announced its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

Eli Yaffe, Chief Executive Officer, commented: "We are pleased that our second quarter reflects the return to improved results. We are gratified that despite the global Covid- 19 pandemic that resulted in the short supply of various critical raw materials and the related challenges, we were able to grow our top line by 3.9% compared to the second quarter of 2020 and improve our gross margins from 21.6% in Q2 2020 to 25.9% in Q2 2021."

“We are operating in a challenging business environment these days, mainly due to the global supply chain crisis, which was not resolved yet. As previously announced, during 2021 we were impacted by the worldwide shortage of Pyralux AP, a key material produced by DuPont. During the second quarter we were able to obtain authorizations from some of our customers to use alternative raw materials.” added Mr. Yaffe.

“During the second quarter we faced price increases for some of our raw materials. In addition, some of our operating expenses are dominated in New Israeli Shekel (“NIS”) and were negatively affected due to the devaluation of the US$ against the NIS. Nevertheless these challenges, we were able to improve our gross margin in the second quarter” said Mr. Yaffe.

“We are conducting several R&D programs and making effort to become an innovative industry leader. Eltek is making the necessary operational adjustments to expand our business, improve customer satisfaction, increase revenues, maintain the trend of improved operational results,” concluded Mr. Yaffe.

Thin PCBs for Smart Phones: Technology and Reliability Considerations

11/19/2014 |
The next generation of smartphones will demand very thin multilayer boards to reduce product thickness. This paper shows three different manufacturing approaches which can be used for very thin, any-layer build-ups. The technological approaches are compared on reliability level--the any-layer copper filled microvia technology which is to be considered state-of-the-art for high-end phones and the ALIVH-C/G technology well established in Japan.
