Insulectro Tees Up Signal Integrity Product Arsenal at Designcon

Reading time ( words)

Insulectro, a leading distributor of materials for use in the printed circuit board and printed electronics industries, has announced its plan to speak directly to PCB designers’ greatest challenge – signal integrity – during next week’s DesignCon in Santa Clara, CA (January 21-22). Insulectro can be found in space #414.

Attendees will learn first hand about signal loss solutions as Insulectro aggregates products from their suppliers Isola, DuPont, Oak-Mitsui, CAC Inc., and Ormet Circuits.

“This is a very strategic show for the PCB industry,” said Ken Parent, Insulectro Vice President of Sales, “It’s located right in the heart of Silicon Valley and attracts all members of the supply chain – from suppliers to fabricators, plus designers and OEMs. We are fortunate to have been a major player in Northern California for many years. It’s a perfect opportunity for us to showcase the incredible array of products we offer that help to maximize signal integrity.”

Vice President of Technology Chris Hunrath agrees, “Engineers and designers attend DesignCon looking for solutions to the continual challenge of signal loss. We hope to engage the attendees and discuss their issues and introduce them to the material solutions we provide.

“They will see some interesting new laminate materials from Isola designed for high speed applications as well as high-quality electrodeposited copper from one of our newest suppliers – Oak-Mitsui,” Hunrath continued.  “We have knowledge and experience with many different materials used in PCB construction and are expert at how they work together. A broad range of dielectrics, foils, interconnecting pastes and imaging technologies enables us to offer systems to different design requirements.”

Parent added, “There’s a new no-glass solution for rigid, fine-line applications being introduced by one of our top-flight suppliers at the show and we’ll also focus on the exciting possibilities of Ormet Sintering Paste – a lead-free paste that is highly electrically and thermally conductive and cures to form a solid metallurgical bond.

“Stop by our booth, #414, at DesignCon and get acquainted with us and the best-in-class products we offer. And don’t forget, technical service is an important part of the Insulectro difference. We have a complete staff of Field Application Engineers ready to work with you on solutions that are on-time, on-target, and on-budget,” Ken Parent concluded.

EIPC Technical Snapshot: Supply Chain and Material Price Pressures

04/26/2021 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
EIPC’s seventh Technical Snapshot webinar on April 14 was timely and appropriate. In the context of current supply chain issues and material price pressures facing the PCB industry, particularly in Europe, the EIPC team brought together an outstanding group of experts—each a leading authority in his field—to analyse and comment upon the areas of concern and to respond to questions raised by a capacity audience. As Alun Morgan said, “If you don’t use the European supply chain, you won’t have it anymore!”

Time, Space, Structure, and Model Analysis of CCL Price Increase

04/19/2021 | Hu Yang, Zhongtai Securities Research Center
According to the CCL Association, copper foil accounts for the largest proportion of raw materials (traditional CCL uses epoxy resin, glass fiber cloth and copper as raw materials). Copper foil in thin plate accounts for about 30% of the overall cost; in thick plate copper accounts for 50%. In CCL production, using Shengyi Technology and Chaohua Technology as examples, the cost of raw materials accounts for about 88% of the total cost, with labor accounting for about 4%. Other costs such as equipment depreciation account for about 8%.
