Reading time ( words)

Averatek Incorporated has announced Calumet Electronics as its first A-SAP™ licensee. A-SAP™ is an advanced PCB manufacturing technology that enables feature sizes of 25 microns and below, effectively providing PCB designers with new opportunities to address the challenges of next-generation electronics.

“Averatek’s A-SAP™ process is industry-transforming technology that will allow the U.S. to recapture the leadership position in electronics manufacturing, providing for dramatic reductions in size, weight, and manufacturing complexity, while significantly improving signal integrity and reliability,” said Todd Brassard, COO of Calumet Electronics.

“Calumet Electronics is rapidly moving through the process installation and qualification cycle,” said Haris Basit, CEO of Averatek. “Their PCB manufacturing expertise, in combination with these advanced fabrication capabilities, strongly positions Calumet to support industry leaders as they face growing challenges with increasing density and frequency.”

Averatek’s A-SAP™ is an advanced manufacturing process for printed circuit board fabrication with trace and space widths as narrow as 15 microns. This process can dramatically reduce the area, layer count, and weight of electronics systems as well as provide significant RF benefits. A-SAP™ has been designed to be easily integrated with traditional PCB manufacturing equipment and materials.

I’m sure it’s just me being hyperaware, but I can’t shake it: Mars is where it’s at right now. Is it just me, or do you get the same feeling from the news? There are the Mars rovers—three generations of them still rolling, now—and a drone helicopter winding up for a maiden flight any day now. But that’s not all. There’s SpaceX’s StarShip, rapid-prototyping its way into a manned flight to Mars. And NASA’s whole “return to the Moon” project is simply a shakedown for the U.S. government contractors’ Mars flight hardware, too.

IPC Supporting Newcomers in the Industry: Notes from IPC APEX EXPO 2021

04/01/2021 | Marc Carter, Aeromarc
With the wrap-up of IPC APEX EXPO 2021, it was extremely gratifying to note the emphasis placed on getting young people involved to combat the “graying out” knowledge losses facing our industry. A part of that emphasis was reflected in the award ceremony on Tuesday, March 9, which featured some people you may have seen mentioned in my “Better to Light a Candle” columns.
