Reading time ( words)

Insulectro, the largest distributor of materials for use in the Printed Circuits Boards (PCB) and Printed Electronics industries, has hired industry leader Chris Hrusovsky as VP of Sales for Chemistry. “I am pleased today to announce Chris Hrusovsky has joined the Insulectro family,” commented Patrick Redfern, President of Insulectro.

“He is well-known throughout the PCB industry and, as Vice President of Sales for our chemistry interests, Chris will make a significant impact on Insulectro’s future growth. 

“Over the past several years, our interest in developing a full line of chemistry has increased. Earlier this year, we added Shikoku Chemicals to our best-in-class supplier list which also includes Focus Tech Chemicals.

Together, these two suppliers provide a solid platform for us to leverage. We look to Chris to help us build on that platform.” Redfern continued. Hrusovsky has spent nearly thirty years in various key positions with OMG Electronic Chemicals / Electrochemicals, most recently in the position of Director of PCB/GMF for the Americas and Europe. He has a proven track record in the sales and support of chemistry used in electronics. His positions have ranged from Site Manager to Technical Service Engineering. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering from Youngstown State University. In his new position, Hrusovsky will report to Patrick Redfern. He will be based out of Insulectro’s Twin Cities operation in Minnesota.

  “2016 is a year of change for Insulectro,” Patrick Redfern stated, “Insulectro is committed to long-term growth by attracting talented people like Chris.”

 “At the end of the day, you can do almost anything if you have the right people. Chris joins an incredible team of passionate, talented Insulectro associates, who, every day, excel in every level of the company,” Redfern concluded.

The big news in the industry this week was the new bill introduced to the U.S. Congress in support of the PCB manufacturing industry. The Supporting American Printed Circuit Boards Act of 2022, which was introduced by Reps. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and Blake Moore (R-UT), incentivizes “purchases of domestically produced PCBs as well as industry investments in factories, equipment, workforce training, and research and development.” The bill is a PCB-oriented complement to the semiconductor-oriented CHIPS Act of 2021.

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.

It’s been a crazy week, with lots of bad news coming out of Ukraine. (I’m a news junkie by trade, but I confess that some days I just unplug from the news completely to avoid overdosing on negativity.) And, as you might have guessed, this is all having ill effects on our electronics supply chain, which is already stretched thin. This is reflected in our IPC news item that shows an uptick in PCB sales in February, but a drop in bookings YOY, in part due to the trouble in Eastern Europe. But there’s positive news in this week’s top reads. We have a NextFlex article about an innovative flexible technology called flexible hybrid electronics (FHE) and a great interview by Dan Beaulieu. We also have a column by Travis Kelly, who discusses PCBAA’s efforts to lobby for American manufacturing in Washington. And last but not least, let’s welcome our two newest columnists, Paige Fiet and Hannah Nelson, who discuss their excitement about entering this industry.
