GoPro, the leading provider of action cameras, has recognized AT&S with the GoPro Lifesaver Award. This award, presented annually at the GoPro Supplier Summit, goes to the company that “best enables smooth and steady supply and high quality to GoPro.”
AT&S was awarded due to its long-standing support for stable delivery and premium products to help GoPro successfully bring its innovative products to global consumers.
AT&S started business cooperation with GoPro in 2012. The company set up a GoPro team helping such an innovative company expand into new markets and grow its business at a breakneck pace. Today AT&S provides products to GoPro from Korea and China. Without the team work, dedication and great support by the AT&S Korea and Shanghai colleagues, the success would not have been realized.
Without a doubt, AT&S will play an important role in continuously supporting GoPro’s procurement and supply chain for years to come.

Bob Duke has been involved in global sourcing for over 20 years, and by global sourcing, it’s far beyond basic PCBs and PCBAs. Bob was doing this sort of thing before it was cool. He has been involved in everything from metal and plastic fabrication to cables and wire harnesses— just about anything an electronics customer might need. So, when American Standard Circuits started a new division to expand its global sourcing solutions, it was no surprise that CEO Anaya Vardya tapped his long-time friend Bob Duke to lead the way. I sat down to have a talk with Bob about this new division and his plans for the future.

Nolan Johnson spoke with Brian Wojtkiewicz at PCB West about Taiyo’s latest developments in solder mask technology. They discussed the company’s advances in flexible circuits, HDI, and much more. In particular, Brian discusses the importance of reliability in fabrication and assembly. "We’re always in the fabricators’ shops. I’m out in the field talking to them, helping the operators understand the process, and making things work better because then we don’t have issues down the road," he says.

In 1980, about 90% of the materials used to make PCBs was FR-4. As time went by, technology developed, and electronic devices relentlessly integrated into every area of our lives. The constant acceleration of upgrading meant endless challenges and opportunities for CCL suppliers. Wazam New Material Co. Ltd. is a CCL supplier that strives to be attentive to the needs of its end customers and provide comprehensive solutions. One example is the mini backlight unity (MBLU) application material.
