Insulectro Tees Up Signal Integrity Product Arsenal at Designcon

Reading time ( words)

Insulectro, a leading distributor of materials for use in the printed circuit board and printed electronics industries, has announced its plan to speak directly to PCB designers’ greatest challenge – signal integrity – during next week’s DesignCon in Santa Clara, CA (January 21-22). Insulectro can be found in space #414.

Attendees will learn first hand about signal loss solutions as Insulectro aggregates products from their suppliers Isola, DuPont, Oak-Mitsui, CAC Inc., and Ormet Circuits.

“This is a very strategic show for the PCB industry,” said Ken Parent, Insulectro Vice President of Sales, “It’s located right in the heart of Silicon Valley and attracts all members of the supply chain – from suppliers to fabricators, plus designers and OEMs. We are fortunate to have been a major player in Northern California for many years. It’s a perfect opportunity for us to showcase the incredible array of products we offer that help to maximize signal integrity.”

Vice President of Technology Chris Hunrath agrees, “Engineers and designers attend DesignCon looking for solutions to the continual challenge of signal loss. We hope to engage the attendees and discuss their issues and introduce them to the material solutions we provide.

“They will see some interesting new laminate materials from Isola designed for high speed applications as well as high-quality electrodeposited copper from one of our newest suppliers – Oak-Mitsui,” Hunrath continued.  “We have knowledge and experience with many different materials used in PCB construction and are expert at how they work together. A broad range of dielectrics, foils, interconnecting pastes and imaging technologies enables us to offer systems to different design requirements.”

Parent added, “There’s a new no-glass solution for rigid, fine-line applications being introduced by one of our top-flight suppliers at the show and we’ll also focus on the exciting possibilities of Ormet Sintering Paste – a lead-free paste that is highly electrically and thermally conductive and cures to form a solid metallurgical bond.

“Stop by our booth, #414, at DesignCon and get acquainted with us and the best-in-class products we offer. And don’t forget, technical service is an important part of the Insulectro difference. We have a complete staff of Field Application Engineers ready to work with you on solutions that are on-time, on-target, and on-budget,” Ken Parent concluded.

A Guide to High-reliability PCBs from Design to Specification

07/24/2019 | Jeff Beauchamp, NCAB Group
Creating reliable PCBs is an outcome of considering all aspects that can affect reliability as early as possible in the design process. The further down the design process, the more expensive and risky it can be to fix. As they say, everything starts with the design. Because a good board design improves the reliability of the end product and lessens the risk of failure.

Microvias: Links of Faith are Not Created Equally

07/18/2019 | Jerry Magera and J.R. Strickland, Motorola Solutions Inc.
Microvias connect adjacent copper layers to complete electrical paths. There are copper-filled microvias, which can be stacked to form connections beyond adjacent copper layers, and staggered microvias, which stitch adjacent copper layers with paths that meander on the layers between the microvias. This article discusses the various laser-drilled microvias and presents SEM photographs to begin the search for the root cause of weak copper interface.

An Examination of Glass-fiber and Epoxy Interface Degradation in Printed Circuit Boards

07/12/2019 | Bhanu Sood, Michael Osterman, and Michael Pecht, Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering
Multilayer organic laminates, which make up over 90% of the interconnecting substrates in electronics (standard FR-4 represents 85% of the substrates used for laminates), can develop a loss of electrical insulation resistance between two biased conductors due to conductive filament formation.
