Isola Exhibits High-Reliability Copper-Clad Laminates at PCB WestSeptember 11, 2017 | Isola Group
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Isola Group, the leading global and local manufacturer of copper-clad laminates and dielectric prepregs for use in PCB boards announces it will exhibit at PCB West in Santa Clara, CA, on Wednesday, September 13, 2017. Isola will display in booth #613 adjacent to its distributor Insulectro in #615.
“Isola is presenting a broad array of products that are truly exciting for our customers,” commented Sean Mirshafiei, Global Vice President of Marketing. “We are exhibiting high speed digital products, like Tachyon® 100G, I-Tera® MT40, and I-Speed® that facilitate next generation designs. As circuit boards continue to become thinner, smaller, and faster, OEM designers are demanding a new breed of materials with lower loss and lower Dk to design and build boards that were never before possible.”
In addition to the HSD dielectric materials for advanced designs, Isola will also present Halogen-free, High-reliability FR-4, and RF/Microwave laminates.
Since 1991, PCB West has been the place designers, fabricators and assemblers have gathered to exchange ideas and learn better ways to make printed circuit boards. Over 2,000 industry professionals participate in a one-day exhibition and three-day technical conference held at the Santa Clara Convention Center. It is Silicon Valley's largest event for the PCB industry.
"I look forward to greeting Isola customers and sharing with them the direction our company is going. PCB West is an important tradeshow that offers attendees unique opportunities to improve skills, increase knowledge, and network with peers, colleagues, and experts," Mirshafiei concluded.
The exhibit floor is open Wednesday, September 13, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.
Isola is a leading global material sciences company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets laminate materials used to fabricate advanced multilayer printed circuit boards, which provide the physical platforms for the semiconductors, passive components, and connection circuitry that power and control virtually all modern electronic products. Isola operates a network of factories worldwide.
After working for a capital equipment supplier for almost 50 years, I’ve found that the most important part of getting to know your vendor is good communication among all parties. While contact between fabricators of a constantly changing product line and the designers of those products may occur daily or weekly, conversations between you and your equipment supplier may be years apart. That lengthy gap often means that previous contacts may have been promoted, retired, or moved on to other opportunities. You may have also migrated to a new supplier with whom you have little or no history. In either case, you will be interacting with someone you are unfamiliar with (as they are with you). Therefore, it is essential for both sides to communicate clearly so expectations will align.
The opening session of the second day’s conference proceedings focused on global PCB trends and was introduced and moderated by Dr. Michele Stampanoni, vice president of strategic sales and business development at Cicor Group in Switzerland. He opened the session with Dr. Hayao Nakahara’s knowledgeable and enlightening video presentation on the IC substrates industry.
The 2024 Winter Conference of the EIPC took place January 30 and 31 at the IHK Academie in Villingen-Schwenningen, Germany. The keynote session will be reported separately. Here is my review of the first day’s conference proceedings.
Electrodeposition comes down to fundamentals. In the early days of plating, many users considered the nuances of metallization as black magic. Those days are long gone. Having a thorough understanding of the critical parameters that influence electrodeposition will determine success.
