Ventec International Group, a world leader in the production of polyimide & high reliability epoxy laminates and prepregs, today announced that it will exhibit in Booth #K011 at the TPCA Show 2015, scheduled to take place October 21. - 23, 2015 at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, Taiwan. Ventec's experts will present the company's next generation low Dk material range and ultra-thin laminates and prepregs.
Demand for high performance materials, particularly for high-end storage, telecommunications and automotive applications requiring high signal transmission speed and low transmission loss, is driving the advancement of high speed and high frequency solutions. Ventec offers a total solution of low loss materials and will be highlighting the VT-462 and VT-464 series of low Dk/low Df, high reliability products which offer excellent Laser drilling ability and better dimensional stability, lower cost and longer shelf life. To meet environmental requirements for non-brominated flame retardants, VT-464 achieves UL94 V-0 whilst retaining its low loss characteristics, and is based on a halogen-free epoxy resin technology. High glass transition temperature and excellent thermal reliability ensure compatibility with lead-free assembly processes.
Furthermore, increased miniaturization and higher component density, driven by greater functional demands from consumer, automotive, mil/aero and medical applications and devices, are accelerating rapid advances in laminate technology for next generation PCB's. As a direct consequence, the demand for process capability of ultra-thin laminates and prepregs is on the rise. Ventec's advanced solutions offer a range of ultra-thin materials with a minimum dielectric thickness of 25 microns.
The latest advancements in prepreg & laminate production including Ventec's full range of IMS materials for thermal management & a comprehensive range of standard, halogen-free & high-temp & high reliability grades of FR4 will also be highlighted.

At the recent IPC High-Reliability Forum and Microvia Summit, Customer Applications Scientist Elizabeth Kidd and Sales Engineer Alex Bien, both of BTG Labs, discuss with Andy Shaughnessy their presentation on the challenges of working with highly sensitive surfaces, such as the risk of contamination. They also talked about the various surface characterization techniques that BTG Labs uses to identify such contaminants.

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.

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.
