Price Circuits LLC, a Division of Circuitronics, Installs LED Laser Direct Imaging System from Miva Technologies


Reading time ( words)

Price Circuits LLC of Elgin, IL, a leader in electronics manufacturing of printed circuit boards specializing in leading edge technologies, announces the most recent capital investment to support fine line imaging and advanced HDI products with a MIVA 2025L Di Trio Laser Direct Imaging System. Final equipment installation and training was implemented February 2020.

With our focus on supporting complex printed circuit board technologies, in rigid, flex and rigid-flex technologies, our technical capability has expanded in 2020. With technologies advancing quickly in the business industries that require the most leading edge support, Price Circuits recognized the need to update with installing the most state of the art equipment available in the industry.

The Miva LED Direct Imager is the first of its kind with precision optics, HD DMM and a custom designed LED Array to deliver a digitally defined, high UV power image to photo-sensitive substrates.

Using LDI to create the circuit traces gives us a lot of advantages, most of them pertaining to weaknesses of using a Photo-tool. Eliminating the need of a phototool removes alignment issues, light refraction issues, and those imperfections related to environmental variations. Fine lines, traces and spaces down to at least 2 mils and below are possible. It is a flexible and precise registration for various product types and variety of materials.

Price Circuits LLC has implemented over $6 million in 2019/2020 to our capital investment to better serve our diverse customer base with process capabilities to further support their ever-advancing technology needs. Our customers are coming up with demanding technologies beyond imagination and we as a company are better prepared to support their needs through the expansion.

PCB Plating Still Comes Down to Physics

06/21/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
We asked columnist Michael Carano to discuss the latest innovations in plating equipment and chemicals, as well as some of the drivers in this segment, and the biggest challenges and opportunities he sees in plating today. As Michael points out, despite all of the technological advances in this industry, process engineers still need a solid understanding of Faraday’s Law and Ohm’s Law to successfully plate PCBs.

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

05/13/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
The big news in the industry this week was the new bill introduced to the U.S. Congress in support of the PCB manufacturing industry. The Supporting American Printed Circuit Boards Act of 2022, which was introduced by Reps. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and Blake Moore (R-UT), incentivizes “purchases of domestically produced PCBs as well as industry investments in factories, equipment, workforce training, and research and development.” The bill is a PCB-oriented complement to the semiconductor-oriented CHIPS Act of 2021.
