February 2022 Issue of PCB007 Magazine Available Now


Reading time ( words)

During IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego, additive and semi-additive processes were a hot topic. But we heard far more questions than answers. Is additive a disruptive PCB technology? Will it displace tried-but-true subtractive etch technology, or is it merely another tool to have in our toolbox? What does a PCB designer have to do differently? Do EDA tools support it?

How much is it going to cost to get into additive processing? Do the numbers really add up? What sort of ROI are we talking about? What equipment am I going to have to acquire in order to begin additive or semi-additive processing? Where’s all of the R&D?

For the February 2022 issue of PCB007 Magazine, we asked a variety of contributors to address some of these questions and share their insights about additive and semi-additive technology.

Electronica 2022: Happy to Be Back in Munich

11/21/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
As we stepped out of the hotel into the drizzling rain, we were relieved that it wasn’t snow. Looking down the escalator into the U2 platform in Munich’s Hauptbahnhof central station early on the morning of Tuesday, Nov. 15 and observing the mass of humanity pushing and shoving to cram into trains to the exhibition centre, it appeared that a significant proportion of the international electronics industry had gathered to attend electronica 2022, co-located with SEMICON Europa and recognised as the world’s leading trade fair and conference for electronics.
