EIPC Webinar Focuses on 5G

Reading time ( words)

In line with the growing adoption of 5G, there is a clear demand in the whole PCB supply chain on finding solutions to decrease signal losses at the PCB level. The understanding of loss savings in signalling at the PCB level is meaningful from functionality, but also from the signal point of view and the total power consumption of the product.

Thus, OEMs are challenging the supply chain to find the solutions to increase signal losses and improve the signal quality at the PCB level.

In line with this, the sixth Technical Snapshot Webinar of the European Institute for the PCB Community (EIPC) will focus on 5G. To be held on March 17, the session will feature interesting papers on the dielectric material, copper foil, and testing solutions, supporting the challenge of signal losses driven by these high-speed products.

The webinar will feature Dipl.-Ing. Manfred Huschka, vice president of global marketing, AGC Multi Material General Division, who will present his paper, "Electrical and Mechanical Reliability of an RF Laminate are Key Requirements For Selection in 77 GHz ADAS sensor"; Julie Mouzon of Circuitfoil, who will present a paper on ultra-flat ED-copper foils dedicated to high-speed digital and RF circuit boards; and Martyn Gaudion of Polar Instruments, who will speak on the primary drivers for insertion loss on high speed base material.

Moderated by Paul Waldner of Multiline International Europa, EIPC’s webinar will also have a Q&A session at the end.

Nolan Johnson speaks with Michael Gay of Isola and Chris Hunrath of Insulectro about the release of their new halogen-free, high-thermal reliability material, which they hope fills the gap in the market between epoxies and polyimides.

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!”
