The 10th Annual Meeting of the Chongqing Mayor’s International Economic Advisory Council was convened in Chongqing on Sep 19th and 20th. 35 Global Chairmen and top executives from renowned international companies including Ford Motor, ANZ Bank, HSBC Bank, ABB, BASF, SK Hynix, United Technologies, HP, Ericsson, Mitsui, BP etc. together with AT&S participated in the meeting as advisers for Chongqing’s Mayor.

The two days meeting attracted around 400 worldwide business executives and top Chongqing officials participated. It reveals an exciting era and the importance of Chongqing with the State’s focus on “one road and one belt” strategy. Chongqing will play a major role linking the Yangtze River belt (from Shanghai to Chongqing) and then with the silk route across Central Asia to Western Europe. It will be the next growth engine the Chinese government is pushing to link up 65 countries with a population of 4 billion.

He discussed in depth topics such as challenges and opportunities for the future development of Chongqing, pointed out Chongqing’s huge advantages and how AT&S, largest Austrian investor in China, works locally to help exploit these advantages.

From Dr. Androsch’s presentation, he sees great possibilities for Chongqing to further enhance infrastructure development in areas like finance, transportation, etc. A whole new industrial base, such as electronics or semiconductors can be developed on these service industries. And, Chongqing’s existing manufacturing businesses will become more competitive as they exploit the infrastructure benefits of these upgraded service industries. He also underlined that how vital it is for Chongqing to continuously attract direct investments by leading high-tech enterprises worldwide and invest in talents.

AT&S is committed to sustainable development in Chongqing and will continue to increase its investment in high technology, manufacturing, localization, talent cultivation and corporate social responsibilities. The company will pursue its growth plans in Chongqing, consolidate its industrial leadership, and contribute to the economic development of Chongqing and the western China.

In the conference, Executive Vice Mayor of Chongqing Wen Jie Ming and other Vice Mayors also actively participated.

Vertical Conductive Structures, Part 3: Design Tool Techniques

08/23/2019 | Ed Hickey and Mike Catrambone, Cadence Design Systems, and Joan Tourné, Nextgin Technology
New vertical conductive structure (VeCS) technology can reduce layer count and improve signal integrity without the need for sequential technologies. VeCS is different than traditional through-hole vias, microvias, and ELIC designs, which are more expensive and require a high number of laminations, drilling, and plating cycles to build up a reasonable number of layers.

Conventional Exposing: Direct Imaging Solder Mask

When you compare direct imaging of solder mask with contact exposure of solder mask, the positive aspects and the advantages are clear. Without a doubt, direct imaging shortens the throughput time and eliminates artwork production. It also eliminates the costly measurement of the panels and manufacturing of artwork with different scaling factors.

Kelvin Characterization to Accurately Predict Copper Thickness

A few years ago at Integrated Test Corporation, we found that the reaction plan for void fallout at electrical test was ineffective and not standardized. Like many PCB manufacturing facilities (including a Sanmina shop that I used to work at), the reaction plan consisted of cross section analysis to determine the void type.
