Bay Area Circuits Annual Open House a Huge Success

Reading time ( words)

Bay Area Circuits, Inc., a leading quick-turn manufacturer of printed circuit boards (PCBs),  hosted its third annual Open House on Friday, October 9th from 11:00AM to 3:00 PM.


Over one hundred and fifty people including customers and vendors attended the event which was first and foremost a celebration recognizing the company’s forty years in business. The event also marked the unveiling of three cutting edge pieces of equipment that Bay Area Circuits has purchased in the past year including an Excellon 136L Intelli-Drill System, a Seica Flying Probe Test System and the Camtek Gryphon 3D Functional Inkjet Technology System for solder mask application; the first machine of its kind for which Bay Area Circuits is now operating in a production environment.


These three pieces of equipment were featured and demonstrated during a series of tours offered at the facility throughout the event. Attendees were also treated to a fantastic lunch provided by the locally renowned Slider Truck which was on site throughout the event!



“This is a great opportunity for us to give back to both our customers who make everything happen and to recognize our vendors who are always ready to help and support us in all of our endeavors throughout the year,” said Stephen Garcia, President of Bay Area Circuits. “It was wonderful seeing everyone here having a good time while learning more about our company and what we do here. It has been a particularly good year for Bay Area Circuits but we always remember that we don’t do it alone, and in fact it is the people we are hosting here who make it all possible.”

Interconnect Reliability Correlation With System Design and Transportation Stress

08/12/2019 | Dr. Paul Wang, Vincent Weng, and Dr. Kim Sang Chim, Mitac International Inc.
Interconnect reliability is very critical to ensure product performance at predefined shipping conditions and user environments. Plating thickness of the compliant pin and the damping mechanism of electronic system design are key success factors for this purpose. This paper discusses design variables—such as pin hard gold plating thickness, motherboard locking mechanism, and damping structure design—to ensure interconnect reliability.

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.
