Isola Courts Engineers, Designers With High-Reliability Copper-Clad Laminates at DesignConAugust 16, 2021 | Isola Group
Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
Isola Group, the leading global and local manufacturer of copper-clad laminates and dielectric prepregs for use in the manufacture of PCB boards announces it will exhibit at DESIGNCON in San Jose, CA, on Tuesday, August 17, and Wednesday, August 18, 2021. Isola will display in booth #925.
Due to the pandemic, the event was moved from its usual January date to mid-August. The venue has changed as well from Santa Clara to the San Jose Convention Center
“Isola is presenting a broad array of products that are truly exciting for our customers, designers, and engineers,” commented Sean Mirshafiei, Global Sales & Marketing Officer. “We are presenting to the marketplace two exceptional products now available. The first is IS550H laminate and prepreg. IS550H is a halogen-free material that is designed for E-Mobility high energy and high voltage applications providing extreme thermal stability, superior CAF performance, and FR-4 like processability. It’s perfect for demanding automotive applications.
“The second is TerraGreen® 400G, an extremely low-loss halogen-free material designed for use in the next generation of 5G infrastructure systems. This new TerraGreen® laminate has 25% lower loss over ultra low-loss materials and a proven CAF performance at 1000 hours 100VDC/65% RH/85° C.”
Isola also plans on showcasing exhibiting high speed digital products, like Tachyon® 100G, I-Tera® MT40, and I-Speed® that facilitate next generation designs. The exhibit will feature RF/Microwave laminates, such as Astra® MT77.
Mirshafiei continued, “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 its 26th year in Silicon Valley, DesignCon was created by engineers for engineers as a place where designers, fabricators and assemblers can exchange ideas and learn better ways to make printed circuit boards. Over 5,000 industry professionals participate in a two-day exhibition and three-day technical conference held at the San Jose Convention Center.
“The Isola team is looking forward to greeting attendees and sharing with them the game-changing products our company offers. DesignCon is an important tradeshow as it offers us the opportunity to match our products with an engineer’s or designer’s needs. Plus, after a long year and a half of limited travel, it’s an opportunity to network with peers, colleagues, and experts and get reacquainted,” Mirshafiei concluded.
The exhibit floor is open Tuesday, August 17, and Wednesday, August 18, from 11:00 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.
