Recently, our customer Eurocircuits was hit by a fire at their Hungarian factory. A nightmare nobody wants to suffer through, but Eurocircuits took on the situation head-first and managed to get their PCB production back to full capacity within two weeks. Not in the least thanks to Ucamco, who was the first supplier on-site to offer support, the very next day. We serviced the three Ledia direct imagers Eurocircuits has on its Hungary site, and helped our customer to get back on track with all three direct imagers by the end of the next day.

Recently, we met with Nathan Martin, group purchasing director; Jean-Christophe Miralles, supply chain director for Europe and U.S., and Lea Maurel, Americas marketing manager. This wide-ranging conversation dug into market drivers, supply chain challenges and how ICAPE creates consistency on its manufacturing floor. Complementing the supply chain control is ICAPE’s engineering experise, which it uses to increase customer yields and quality. Corporate sustainability is a key strategic initiative for ICAPE, and it was enlightening to learn just how holistic ICAPE’s approach to sustainability is.
I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Summit Interconnect’s Gerry Partida recently spoke with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team about his research into root causes of weak microvias. Rather than a single manufacturing process cause, Gerry suggests that microvia reliability is the culmination of several material interactions and that contrary to popular belief, microvias can still be stacked in small, tight packaging densities. He highlights the need for simulation, as well as some of his findings that he plans to publish in a paper at IPC APEX EXPO 2023.
