Matrix USA Holds Open House at Santa Clara Facility

Reading time ( words)

Matrix USA featured an Open House at their Santa Clara, California Warehouse on September 15, 2015. This event was held in conjunction with the PCB West Technical Conference and Exhibition at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Over 90 customers, OEMs and suppliers attended the catered event.

Also on display were the high speed saw for cutting Panasonic materials and the ink jet marking system that marks lot and part numbers on all materials with indelible ink.

matrix3.JPGMaybe the most impressive room displayed was the clean room dedicated to cutting rolls of Panasonic Felios flexible laminates and Matrix Plus coverlays and adhesives. These capabilities provide the flex fabricators custom widths and lengths and very quick response times.

Along with racks of Megtron 6 and 6G and Megtron 4 products visitors were able to see substantial inventory levels of Jinzhou drills and routers. On display was the dedicated temperature controlled room for AGFA films and chemistry.

Thanks to everyone who attended and to all the Matrix staff who created this very clean and efficient facility.

Solder Mask Curing: UV Bump Overview

08/19/2019 | Nikolaus Schubkegel
Ultraviolet (UV) bump, also called UV cure, is a processing step in which the solder mask pattern is irradiated with ultraviolet and infrared light. This step is performed with special equipment that is built as a continuous flow system, which consists of a conveyor belt and tubular UV lamps mounted above and below the belt. Read on to find out more about this process.

Avoiding CAF Failures at the IPC High-reliability Forum

12/31/1969 | Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
Foresite CEO Terry Munson recently spoke with Andy Shaughnessy during the IPC High-Reliability Forum and Microvia Summit in Baltimore about his presentation on the causes of conductive anodic filament (CAF), the dangers of resin starvation, and what advice he'd give to PCB designers to avoid those types of failures.

A Guide to High-reliability PCBs from Design to Specification

07/24/2019 | Jeff Beauchamp, NCAB Group
Creating reliable PCBs is an outcome of considering all aspects that can affect reliability as early as possible in the design process. The further down the design process, the more expensive and risky it can be to fix. As they say, everything starts with the design. Because a good board design improves the reliability of the end product and lessens the risk of failure.
