Welcome to Real Time with... American Standard Circuits (ASC). In this special event, hosted by I-Connect007, we focus our discussion on three areas: flexible circuits, RF circuits and thermal management. Each topic-specific presentation is segmented for your convenience. We invite you to enjoy the presentations below.


Flex and Rigid Flex PCBs
With so many design styles available with flexible circuits, deep manufacturing expertise in fabrication becomes a critical resource for the design team. Anaya Vardya and Dave Lackey offer an overview of flex layers, rigid-flex layers and components. They examine common applications used to create more reliable, compact board assemblies. Lackey and Vardya stress getting your flex fabricator involved in the design process as early as possible in order to identify possible manufacturing challenges, increase yield and reduce costs overall.
Thermal Management
Anaya Vardya, John Bushie and Dave Lackey discuss thermal conductivity and thermal management. The ASC team share strategies for managing thermal dissipation. Material is one factor, but so also are design techniques like via farms, etc., metal cladding, and even the inclusion of flex technology to design smaller, multi-functional circuit boards.

Understanding MIL-PRF-31032

Unlike other specifications like the aerospace AS9100 standard that focuses on the quality management system, MIL-PRF-31032 is a performance specification; in other words, it was established to test PCBs to certify that they meet the necessary requirements for military use. The title of the specification is “Printed Circuit Board/Printed Wiring Board, General Specification For,” and the scope “establishes the general performance requirements for printed circuit boards or printed wiring boards and the verification requirements for ensuring that these items meet the applicable performance requirements.”

Standard of Excellence: A Column by American Standard Circuits

  • Standard of Excellence: The Power of Partnerships

    Now more than at any other time in our history, solid partnerships hold the key to success for all companies. If the past two and a half years of challenges and issues have taught us anything, it is that by increasing the number of stronger partnerships we have, the more we can accomplish and the more secure our companies will be able to handle the future. We should all be looking for strong and cooperative partnership where we all help one another to do things that neither of us could do alone.
  • Standard of Excellence: What Are Your Partnership Expectations?

    As we delve deeper into the idea of formulating great partnerships with our customers, our suppliers, and even our competitors, we must constantly ask ourselves what we can expect from them and in turn what they can expect from us. There should be a mutual understanding of what these expectations are, and they should be, well, expected. We should be able to count on one another as partners to work with one another, combining and coordinating our expectations so they will always be mutually beneficial. Here are some of the mutual expectations I have with my partners.
  • Standard of Excellence: We’re Working Together—and It Shows

    Now more than ever we need to work with one another. The times have evolved to where no one can do it alone. All the challenges that were brought on by the pandemic have only accelerated the need for finding new and innovative ways to work together. When I started in this business, there was little or no interactions between PCB companies, for example. We all operated in silos, as they say. We seldom communicated or shared technology ideas and improvements. Although the pandemic accelerated that change in attitude, it was already inevitable that a time of more cooperation and partnership was well on its way.
