Advanced Circuits’ Tempe Division completed its submittal to the IPC Process Capability, Quality and Relative Reliability assessment. The PCQR2 program allows for a relative comparison of printed circuit board fabricators covering various aspects of manufacturing and is managed by Conductor Analysis Technologies (CAT). Advanced Circuits Tempe did very well and had an overall Top Tier ranking on microvia and plated through-hole formation/reliability when compared to 12 other fabricators submitting similar high technology designs. This capability test consists of three builds of 5 panel seach over a several week period. The design, which is created by CAT, consists of a 14 layer board with blind/buried vias, microvias, 2 mil trace/space and 14:1 aspect ratio holes.
CAT and PCQR2 provide a peer comparison of process capability along with establishing a baseline for on-going enhancements to strengthen the company’s performance and relative results among similar high-tech PCB manufacturers.
