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.

NCAB Advocates for Advanced Technologies

05/17/2023 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
At the SMTA Atlanta Expo and Tech Forum, I spoke with NCAB Group Field Application Engineer Ramon Roche, who gave a presentation at the show titled, “Technical Trends in the Global PCB Industry.” Ramon and I discussed his presentation, the emerging technologies that have NCAB’s focus over the next few years, and why semi-additive processes may be the key to succeeding with ultra HDI technology.

Survey: Business Goals and Benchmarking

04/17/2023 | Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
We want your input! PCB fabricators have been utilizing benchmarks for decades, comparing metrics for everything from manufacturing best practices to competitors’ products and services. Now, we have access to more manufacturing data than ever before, and companies can conduct benchmarking at a granular level.

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

04/07/2023 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
The adage about spring weather in Northern temperate climates is, “April showers bring May flowers.” This is, of course, on the heels of March, when the weather comes “In like a lion, out like a lamb.” The suggestion for March is that whatever way the month starts, it will end just the opposite. But we’re in the first week of April, where things are expected to settle into a steady state of preparation for an abundance just over the horizon. Sound a bit like our business climate right now, doesn’t it?
