ICAPE Group Boosts PCB Quotation Process with Integr8tor


Reading time ( words)

ICAPE Group, headquartered in France and currently one of the world’s leading trading companies for the global PCB industry, realized that its PCB quotation process represented a bottleneck for its future growth and business targets, and that this part of its service had to be automated, made more professional, and offer faster turnarounds.

ICAPE tried various solutions, including in-house and off-the-shelf pre-CAM alternatives, but one solution stood head and shoulders above the rest: Ucamco’s Integr8tor, the PCB industry’s premier data entry and design analysis tool.

"Integr8tor improves many aspects of our business," says Fredéric Defresne, ICAPE's Chief Technical Officer. "It is a powerful catalyst for ICAPE’s increased growth, productivity and profitability into the future."

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

A perennial and yet irregular category on the popular game show Jeopardy is “potpourri.” My dad, as I was growing up, pronounced the word as “pot-poury.” It wasn’t until I was a sophomore in college that my girlfriend’s mom—who had a penchant for a soupcon of French euphemism in her tête-à-têtes—pronounced the word properly: “po-pu-ree.” Such are the risks of growing up just a bit rural.

Chapter 2 Excerpt from the Book ‘Thermal Management: A Fabricator's Perspective’

12/21/2020 | Anaya Vardya, American Standard Circuits
Insulated metal PCBs (IMPCB) or metal-clad PCBs (MCPCB) are a thermal management design that utilizes a layer of solid metal to dissipate the heat generated by the various components on the PCBs. When metal is attached to a PCB, the bonding material can either be thermally conductive but electrically isolative (IMPCBs or MCPCBs), or in the case of RF/microwave circuits, the bonding material may be both electrically and thermally conductive. The reason that RF designers usually have the bonding material thermally and electrically conductive is that they are using this not only as a heat sink but also as part of the ground layer. The design considerations are quite different for these different applications.
