LPKF Exhibits New Laser Solutions for Innovative Interconnects at ECTC in Las Vegas

Reading time ( words)

LPKF Laser & Electronics has announced it will exhibit at the 2016 Electronic Components and Technology Congerence (ECTC) which will be held June 1-2, 2016 at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, NV.

LPKF, a leading manufacturer of laser systems for electronics manufacturing, will showcase its new solutions across the semiconductor packaging spectrum in booth 320.
One of the technologies highlighted by LPKF is the efficient via forming in large glass substrates (TGV); a process of creating through holes and blind vias, with defined diameters as small as 15 microns, using single-pulse glass modification through laser beam in combination with subsequent a standard wet etching process. Glass substrates with a thickness of 50 to 500 micron can be processed with this method. Clean-room compatibility and stress-free processing make this innovative laser-based process ideal for thin glass interposers and also for solid glass cores for FCBGA substrates – eliminating chips, burr, micro-cracks or voids.

LPKF has developed the new Vitrion laser system specifically developed for these applications. The system is designed for high volume mass production, capable of forming more than 5,000 homogeneous vias per second.

Another technology represented at the ECTC Conference will be Laser Direct Structuring (LDS-technology) for MEMS applications, a method of creating ultra-fine circuits directly on 3D parts used for chip packaging. The highly flexible and stress-free laser direct structuring process is designed for advanced electronic packaging where space is a premium and high layout-flexibility is much appreciated.

Taiyo’s Brian Wojtkiewicz Discusses Flex, HDI and More

10/25/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
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.

Catching Up With John Johnson, New Director of Business Development at ASC

09/28/2022 | Dan Beaulieu, D.B. Management Group
It’s always good to catch up with old friends, especially when you can start working together. I recently spoke with my friend John Johnson, who has joined American Standard Circuits as the director of business development. At ASC, John will be using the Averatek A-SAP process that he was previously involved with. He shares some of his background and provides insight on the best ways to use this semi-additive PCB fabrication process that opens the capability window for forming trace and space.
