Ventec International Group, a world leader in the production of polyimide & high reliability epoxy laminates and prepregs, today announced the appointment of Mark Nemecek to their United States technical team.

Mark Nemecek joins the US team as Technical Sales Engineer and will be providing engineering support activities to Ventec’s growing US customer base. Mark is widely recognized for his strong track record and over 30 years’ experience with material and chemistry aspects of the printed circuits industry.

Mark developed his extensive knowledge of PCB base materials during his 7-year employment at Polyclad Laminates – a manufacturer of laminate and prepreg materials to the PWB and electronics packaging industry - first as Technical Service Engineer and then as Process Engineer. His in-depth technical understanding of Ventec products was built through his role as Technical Manager at Global Laminates where he oversaw all technical aspects of the introduction of the Ventec product line to North America, set up and maintained the prepreg fab operation, sheeting, tooling and packaging at the Global Laminate’s warehouse, and defined & policed all corresponding operational procedures.

Among his previous roles, Mark worked on a plating line for Photocircuits and holds a Six Sigma Green Belt Certification. He has also completed Lean Manufacturing training.

Jack Pattie, President, Ventec USA, commented: “Ventec’s technical team is one of the best in the industry. We set a stringent standard when it comes to our technical engineers and carefully select them to ensure we offer our customers the most up-to-date and concise technical information and support which is fundamental to their business success. We look forward to seeing this service continue to grow.”

Engineering RF Dielectric Material to Enable 5G/6G Antenna Devices

04/11/2022 | Chudy Roosevelt Nwachukwu, ITEQ Corporation
Accurate characterization of frequency-dependent inhomogeneous dielectric material properties is key to the optimal design of high performance and cost-effective PCB antennas. These antennas will be required to enable the plethora of devices forecasted for 5G/6G communication. Therefore IT-88GMW, an advanced resin system reinforced with tightly woven thin glass fibers has been formulated to improve the Q-factor of interconnects and passive components fabricated on PCB laminates.

Improved Thermal Interface Materials For Cooling High-Power Electronics

03/31/2022 | Jeff Brandman, Aismalibar North America
Heat has been a significant concern in electronics since the beginning of the electronics age when hot glowing vacuum tubes were first used to receive and transmit data bits. The transistor and integrated circuit effectively solved that basic problem, but increases in integration resulted in increased concentration of heat, exacerbated by relentless increases in operating frequency. While improvements in electronics technology have been able to mitigate many thermal issues at chip level thanks to improved semiconductor designs devised to operate at lower voltages (thus requiring less energy) the thermal management challenge continues to vex electronic product developers.

Institute of Circuit Technology: A Novel Approach to Recycling PCBs

03/10/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
A two-year project funded by an Innovate UK SMART Grant aims to reduce the impact of e-waste using naturally derived, biodegradable and nontoxic products. Those attending the webinar for the Institute of Circuit Technology’s annual meeting on March 2 learned more about the project, as well as statutory paperwork obligations of the UK REACH regulations. Following the formal business, ICT Chair Emma Hudson introduced and moderated this technical webinar.
