Ventec USA Appoints Ken Stem as Technical Account Representative


Reading time ( words)

Ventec USA is proud to announce the appointment of Ken Stem as Technical Account Representative for the states of Washington, Oregon, Colorado, Utah, Arizona and Vancouver/British Columbia Canada.

Well-known and highly regarded in this territory, Ken joins Ventec USA’s west coast sales team and brings with him a wealth of industry experience. From a background of engineering, quality and operations management with a major PCB fabricator, Ken became a technical service specialist in laminates and chemical processes. For the last 12 years he has been a technical account manager with a leading distributor of laminates, processes and consumable materials, responsible for generating new product sales and providing technical service, as well as for new product testing and maintaining customer consignment inventory.

Ken has now chosen to focus his extensive skills on representing exclusively a primary laminate manufacturer, acknowledging the trend for OEMs to insist that their PCB suppliers buy specified laminate direct from the nominated manufacturer rather than through third party distributors, for reasons of supply chain integrity.

Ventec USA President Jack Pattie commented: “We are delighted to welcome Ken to the team supporting our rapidly-developing west coast market. His extensive product knowledge and in-depth understanding of PCB manufacturing technology, together with his resourceful and proactive commitment to customer support, make him a real asset to our organization.”

Microvias connect adjacent copper layers to complete electrical paths. There are copper-filled microvias, which can be stacked to form connections beyond adjacent copper layers, and staggered microvias, which stitch adjacent copper layers with paths that meander on the layers between the microvias. This article discusses the various laser-drilled microvias and presents SEM photographs to begin the search for the root cause of weak copper interface.

Multilayer organic laminates, which make up over 90% of the interconnecting substrates in electronics (standard FR-4 represents 85% of the substrates used for laminates), can develop a loss of electrical insulation resistance between two biased conductors due to conductive filament formation.
