Excellon has recently completed the installation of a COBRA-II Hybrid Laser System at Accurate Circuit Engineering, of Santa Ana, California.

James Hofer, General Manager at Accurate Circuit Engineering (ACE), comments: 

“ACE provides cutting edge technology prototype PCBs and as such we need cutting edge technology. The Cobra-II brings a suite of laser drilling, milling and skiving advantages that no other unit we evaluated could compare with. Further, the support we get from Excellon is like no other. Though we evaluated multiple manufacturers of laser drilling systems it came as no surprise that Excellon performed better and allowed us the flexibility to do what we do best, high technology faster and better than the rest.”

Accurate Circuit Engineering (ACE) is a high technology, quick turn prototype PCB manufacturer specializing in RF, microwave, high-speed and antenna designs. In our Santa Ana based facility ACE can build a Multilayer PCB in as little as 24 hours. ACE is AS9100, ITAR Mil-PRF-31032 and D0D 2345 certified.

Mike Sparidaens, Vice President of Sales at Excellon, shared his comments:

Hot on the heels of the news that U.S. President Biden signed a presidential determination in support of the printed circuit board industry, I-Connect007’s Nolan Johnson spoke with David Schild, executive director of the Printed Circuit Board Association of America, about some of the expected implications. David points out, among other things, that this signals increased momentum with government and defense to support U.S.-based printed circuit manufacturing, and the possibility that a renewed interest in the industry by private financing could possibly follow.

Organizing Materials Differently at Ventec

03/29/2023 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
At a recent industry conference, technical editor Pete Starkey caught some time with Ventec’s Mark Goodwin and Didier Mauve. In this conversation, Mark and Didier discuss Ventec’s work to curate their product offerings into functional categories based on function and target application. The pair also share their thinking on markets which they see as driving material development work. When material performance becomes an integral part of the PCB’s performance specifications, the traditional way of categorizing materials may not do the job.
