Ventec’s Martin Cotton to Present Paper on PCB Design Process at SMART Group European Conference


Reading time ( words)

Ventec Europe, a world leader in the production of polyimide & high reliability epoxy laminates and prepregs, today announced that Martin Cotton, Director OEM Technology, will present a paper entitled 'Making the right decisions at the right time in the PCB design process' at the 2015 SMART Group European Conference & Exhibition. The conference will be held on the 22-23rd September at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), one of the UK’s leading science and research facilities, located in Teddington, London.

In PCB design, a key decision influencing the process and the eventual outcomes (quality, yield, cost) is the selection of material, particularly when the PCB in question requires significant performance parameters to be met. Martin's presentation will highlight the processes that lead to successful design and will explore how errors can be avoided that lead to risk, potential problems and compromises.

Martin commented: 'Over two days, The SMART Group Conference & Exhibition offers delegates and key suppliers of materials, equipment and testing services the opportunity to meet, network and discuss the latest industry developments and trends. Ventec and the SMART Group have a strong history together and we are excited about our participation at this year's European Conference.'

Microvias: Links of Faith are Not Created Equally

07/18/2019 | Jerry Magera and J.R. Strickland, Motorola Solutions Inc.
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.

Dissecting the IPC Regional Survey on PCB Technology Trends

07/15/2019 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Sharon Starr, Denny Fritz, and Mike Carano talk about the global 2018 IPC Technology Trends Report released early this year—the size of the survey, how it was conducted, the general findings, and regional differences. They also shared their takeaways and regional insights, and the industry outlook over the next five to 10 years.

An Examination of Glass-fiber and Epoxy Interface Degradation in Printed Circuit Boards

07/12/2019 | Bhanu Sood, Michael Osterman, and Michael Pecht, Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering
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.
