Reading time ( words)

Ventec International, a world leader in the production of polyimide & high reliability epoxy laminates and prepregs, is participating at the 2017 DesignCon show in Santa Clara, California, USA from 31st January to 2nd February as both an exhibitor on booth #118 and technical presenter. The presentation will unveil the industry's most advanced ultra-low Dk PCB materials for high-speed low-loss applications. 

Ventec will be participating at DesignCon 2017, the premier conference for chip, board, and systems design engineers, on booth #118 and has specifically chosen the event as the ideal platform to unveil the industry's latest advances in PCB materials for high-speed low-loss applications. Ventec's Martin Cotton (Director - OEM Technology Marketing) and Bill Wang (Technical Director) will be presenting their paper titled "Ultra-Low Dk PCB Materials for High-Speed Low-Loss Applications" in Ballroom F on Wednesday, 1st February at 8:00am. 

The technical presentation will demonstrate how lower losses and lower system power requirements are realized by using an ultra-low Dk material with Dk values between 2.3 and 2.8.

"By lowering the material Dk to ultra-low levels using FR4 processes, the delicate balance of performance and cost is achieved", said Martin Cotton. "Higher layer counts on backplanes, daughter cards and hand-held's are achieved in a smaller footprint by having smaller layer to layer separation without sacrificing trace width. Having potentially wider traces produces lower resistance in the signal path" he continues. "Combining ultra-low Dk with a low Df of 0.002 to 0.004, produces an alternative to ever smaller traces and higher power requirements."

Laser Patterning & Metallization to Reduce Process Steps for PCB Manufacturing

This paper details a new methodology for the plating of conductive features onto glass dielectrics. A laser is used to ablate material from a glass substrate in the desired pattern, and copper is “seeded” into these features using laser-induced forward transfer of a copper foil.

Mr. Laminate Tells All: PTFE is About to be Banned by IEC TC111

07/10/2017 | Doug Sober, Essex Technologies Group, with Stephen Tisdale, Tisdale Environmental Consulting LLC
There, I said it. Technical Committee 111 of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is preparing to effectively ban PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) materials from electronics. As history goes, the electronics industry has focused on only two of the four halogens (bromine and chlorine) to be limited in order to be called “halogen-free” or more accurately “low-halogen.” But now, fluorine is being dragged down too, just because of its location in the periodic table.
