iNEMI to Hold Hybrid PCB Survey Results Webinar

Reading time ( words)

iNEMI’s PCB & Laminates Technology Integration Group (TIG) has identified thermoset hybrid PCB reliability as a critical focus area. Combining standard laminates with layers of low loss dielectric materials can provide the electrical performance required to meet an increasing range of high frequency applications at minimum cost. However, this combination of dissimilar resin materials has associated challenges for PCB manufacturing processes and can result in a reduction in durability and reliability, often only apparent as a field failure. 

The PCB & Laminates TIG surveyed some of the industry’s top laminate manufacturers, PCB fabricators, and OEMs/ODMs to better understand hybrid PCB utilization and some of the common challenges associated with manufacturing hybrid PCBs. This webinar will present an analysis of the survey responses, including metrics on hybrid PCB utilization along with insights into hybrid PCB manufacturing challenges and their implications for hybrid PCB design. Suggestions for future collaborative projects related to hybrid PCBs will also be presented and attendees will have the opportunity to offer input on specific interests.

Review: Institute of Circuit Technology 2022 Annual Symposium

06/15/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
The British Motor Museum in Warwickshire, housing the world's largest collection of historic British cars, was venue for the 2022 Annual Symposium of the Institute of Circuit Technology on June 8, which attracted a substantial gathering of manufacturers and suppliers from the UK printed circuit industry. ICT chair Emma Hudson reflected upon lessons learned during the pandemic lock-down and how the industry has successfully adapted to circumstances. She commented that the UK’s PCB fabricators are extremely busy, as she introduced an outstanding conference programme including a keynote from the incomparable Happy Holden.

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

05/20/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
This week, we bring you an article about manufacturing training for veterans, and a review of a great signal integrity webinar. IPC honors its A-Teams with the coveted Golden Gnome Awards, and Technica discusses various ways for fabricators to increase ROI. Dan Beaulieu has a review of a really cool book: Back to Human—How Great Leaders Create Connection in the Age of Isolation. In spite of all the meetings on Teams and Zoom, it’s easy to feel disconnected. But great leaders find a way to foster that connectivity.

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

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.
