IPC Publishes World PCB Production Report for the Year 2014

Reading time ( words)

IPC's World PCB Production Report for the Year 2014 has been published and is available in the online store at 2014WORLDPCB. It is the most authoritative source of current PCB production value estimates, in both U.S. dollars and local currencies, by product type and by country. In addition, it includes commentary on global and regional PCB industry trends, a special section on metal-core PCBs, and historical data on regional PCB production trends.

In this year's report, you will find out what countries are the top producers of PCBs in high-growth segments such as microvia boards and rigid flexible circuits. Regional trends are also examined, including China's slowing production growth and the rise of Thailand and Vietnam among the top PCB-producing countries.

Now in its 36th year of continuous publication, this landmark annual study is the most trusted source of PCB production data, having been developed through a consensus process by a team of the world's leading PCB industry analysts.

The report can be purchased for immediate download in IPC's online store using a credit card. If you prefer to order the report using another form of payment, an electronic order form is available. The report costs $475 for IPC members and $950 for nonmembers.

Stacked Microvia Reliability: Ongoing Work and Upcoming IPC Conference

04/24/2019 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
One year ago, Happy Holden's review of the 2018 IPC High-Reliability Forum reported the presentation of J.R. Strickland and Jerry Magera, who described research at MSI Applied Technology into overcoming the risk of stacked microvia failures escaping standard quality assurance procedures. Their report provided a basis for the IPC white paper IPC-WP-023, which addressed reliability issues associated with stacked microvias and included data collected from several other printed circuit manufacturers.
