EIPC Announces Technical Snapshots


Reading time ( words)

EIPC will hold a webinar at which three very reassuring gentlemen will help matters become a little clearer.  

In the 45-minute session, moderated by our Chairman Alun Morgan, we will hear from;

Dr. SHIUH-KAO CHIANG, Prismark, who will show how the pandemic has substantially distorted PCB production patterns and demand expectations. He will reflect on the 2020 PCB market and discuss the various key factors that drive or alter the market momentum.

Prismark Abstract: 2020 is a year to remember. This is probably the first time that the global electronics and PCB industries are deeply impacted by an infectious disease. Furthermore, the pandemic has substantially distorted PCB production patterns and demand expectations. As a result, the 2020 PCB market is very different from originally anticipated. In this presentation, Prismark will present its views on the 2020 PCB market and discuss the various key factors that drive or alter the market momentum.

Mike Vinson, Averatek, will look at how the availability of thinner high-performance materials brings many advantages to board layout and design without affecting impedance requirements. 

Averatek Abstract: The trace size on today’s high speed circuits are often limited by impedance matching and dielectric thickness. Semi-Additive PCB fabrication enabling smaller, more accurate traces with straighter more precise trace sidewalls in combination with the availability of thinner high-performance materials bring many advantages to board layout and design without affecting impedance requirements. This presentation will discuss the A-SAP™ process and its impact on signal integrity and PCB design.

Roland Herold, Atotech, will underline the importance of reliability when plating electrolytic stacked blind micro vias (BMVs), and give an overview about the latest findings & developments in electrolytic copper.

Atotech Abstract: The continuously increasing thermo-mechanic reliability requirements for e.g. automotive electronics and 5G hand-held PCBs needs a better understanding of all production processes.

Apart from the contribution of the well-known factors like base material properties, pressing/lamination & drilling conditions, de-smearing & deposition parameter of the conductive seed layer, the set-up of the electrolytic copper process plays an important role in advanced interface reliability between stacked micro-vias.

The webinar introduces into the gives an overview about the latest findings & developments in electrolytic copper.

There will be a Q&A session after the last speaker. Free for EIPC members and a charge for non-members.

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!”

The Future Is Electric

04/13/2021 | KJ McCann and Brian Zirlin, Aurora Circuits
Worldwide research and development of the automotive industry began as early as the 17th century and since then has taken several different design paths, with each country forging its own innovative trail and hundreds of prototypes emerging into the market. Vehicles—with steam-powered, electric, and combustion engines—began to play a major role, not only in the Industrial Revolution, but in everyday life. Although many believe that electric vehicles (EVs) are relatively new to the market, they have actually been around since 1832.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

01/22/2021 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
This week’s news gave off every indicator that we’ve started a new calendar year. The news channels were busy with changes in leadership—both corporate and governmental—and changes in ownership. Changes in representation, too. Honestly, it was hard to sort out the news to just five top items. Be that as it may, here are five things we think you ought to read, even if you read nothing else about the electronics manufacturing industry this week: tradeshow coverage, strategic acquisitions, market discussion, and governmental advocacy.
