Victory Giant Technology, the fastest growing publicly traded PCB fabricator in China today announced they will showcase a new software tool for calculating total carbon emissions for any PCB design.
VGT’s Executive VP & CTO George Dudnikov commented, “VGT has been addressing the reduction of Green House Gases (GHG) and improved Sustainability of the PCB process since 2011. Through the continued focus on process automation and electricity/water conservation efforts, the company has saved 106,624,100 Kwh of electricity and reduced carbon emissions by 37,507 tons of CO2 through Jan 2021. Our data collection and process monitoring methods have been certified to GB/T 23331-2020, ISO 50001-2018, and RB/T-101-2013 standards.” The company has been recognized by the Chinese Government as a leading “ Green Manufacturer”.
We were asked by several large OEM customers if we could develop a method to quantify the environmental impact of specific PCB part numbers so that they could use the information to optimize and reduce the carbon emissions of their PCBs in support of their corporate Sustainability Initiatives. We had the data for key PCB processes but needed a way to add material ( laminate, copper foil, and prepreg ) contributions and effects of special processes like sequential lamination, VIPPO, HDI, etc. Tools available on the market were too generic and could not support the process complexity of an advanced PCB design. As we had experience with several PCB stackup tools, we saw a natural opportunity for a joint development project to develop a CFP Calculator.”
Visitors to the Victory Giant Technology Booth 303 will be able to obtain the following information:
- Meet with representatives from VGT to review Sustainability accomplishments and get a demo of the CFP Calculator tool.
- Arrange for a free Carbon Footprint analysis of any design based on Gerber data.
- Review VGT’s other capabilities for advanced HDI and High-Speed PCBs
