Reading time ( words)

HSIO Technologies, LLC based in Brooklyn Park, MN and Flexible Circuit Technologies, Inc. (FCT) headquartered in Plymouth, MN announce a comprehensive technology agreement for production of high performance, high density flexible and rigid-flex circuits.

The agreement launches deployment of volume production capability for best in class flex and rigid-flex circuit technology availability through FCT’s global operations. This agreement complements and supports existing domestic production capability with technology partner Lark RF Technology, a subsidiary of Benchmark Electronics, and coincides with the domestic launch of the new HSIO Advanced Technology Center production facility located in Brooklyn Park, MN.

Troy Koopman, president of FCT states, “The HSIO Technology exceeds anything we have seen domestically or overseas. We are eager to begin the implementation of this technology into our current production facilities, as well as our new Zhuhai bare flex/rigid-flex facility coming online in early 2021. The Zhuhai facility will be our largest and most advanced facility implementing the underlining characteristics of Industry 4.0 wherever possible. As we scale up this technology, we will provide tremendous benefits in the areas of miniaturization and signal speed and integrity to our customers in automotive, medical, 5G hardware, IOT and consumer electronics.”

James Rathburn, president of HSIO commented, “We are extremely proud and excited to have FCT launch volume production capability ramp of very high density, precision fine line flex and sophisticated rigid-flex technology, with the added benefits of HSIO high layer count, very complex Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) circuits and assemblies. Our joint customers have a new way to drive functional density and performance not possible with conventional circuit construction, with support from design to prototype to production volume.”

This Month in PCB007 Magazine: The Pillar Roadmap

09/16/2020 | Nolan Johnson, PCB007
As I spoke with Happy Holden about the four pillars of manufacturing, it became clear that they don’t stand on their own; they are intertwined. Happy pulls from his experience at Hewlett-Packard as he discusses benchmarking your capabilities, the competition, and market forces. He then turns that into a technology roadmap, which further drives the other pillars. Happy is adamant that to make all four pillars function properly in your business, you first need to benchmark your business and then create a roadmap. He says the roadmap identifies the specific functions required from the four pillars, and how each pillar supports the others.
