Applications in 5G, IOTs, edge computing, AI, data center and emerging cloud technologies have called for increased transmission speed and bandwidth. These requirements drove EMC to develop advanced technologies like PCIe 5.0/ 6.0, 5G/ 6G, 112 Gb/s or even 224 Gb/s Serdes Speed for 800G and future 1.6TB Ethernet applications.
At DesignCon 2022, EMC will highlight extreme low loss materials EM-892K / EM-892K2 (“K” indicates low Dk/Df glass, while “K2” stands for next generation low Dk/Df glass). These materials have been the best in-class performers since 2020. Both materials have been formulated with EMC’s cutting-edge Halogen-Free technologies to enable EM-892K to reach Dk 2.9 / Df 0.0017 and EM-892K2 to achieve Dk 2.8 / Df 0.0013@10GHz. Both versions of EM-892K can withstand a minimum of 7 lamination cycles. Numerous Tier-1 OEMs, ODMs and PCB fabricators have already qualified the EM-892K and EM-892K2 materials with HVLP3 or HVLP4 foil to tackle future 800G design challenges.
Penetrating both ELIC designs and substrate-like CTE applications, EMC has introduced the 2nd generation IC Substrate materials “EM-S530/ S530K” designed for antenna-in-package (AIP) and “EM-S570” ideal for FCBGA/ FCCSP applications.
In addition to these materials, EMC’s newly acquired local US operation, Arlon EMD, is introducing a new polyimide product 86HP. The 86HP uses a unique polyimide resin that has exceptional Anti-CAF performance. Arlon’s 86HP is ideal for use in designs with tightly packed thru-hole configurations, HDI, high layer counts, and in high temperature applications. EMC and Arlon, jointly welcome global OEMs, ODMs and PCB Fabricators to stop by our Booth #418 at DesignCon 2022 to learn more about our latest product offerings.

Panasonic’s Darren Hitchcock spoke with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team on the complexities of moving toward ultra HDI manufacturing. As we learn in this conversation, the number of shifting constraints relative to traditional PCB fabrication is quite large and can sometimes conflict with each other.
In my last column, I discussed cutting-edge innovations in printed circuit board technology, focusing on innovative trends in ultra HDI, embedded passives and components, green PCBs, and advanced substrate materials. This month, I’m following up with the products these new PCB technologies are destined for. Why do we need all these new technologies?

Intel announced one of the industry’s first glass substrates for next-generation advanced packaging, planned for the latter part of this decade.
I have been in and around circuit boards most of my life. I started 20 years ago in my family’s PCB shop, leaving after a couple of years to start my own software company. About a year ago, I returned to the family business, and the first thing I noticed was that nothing had really changed. We were doing the same things in the same way as the day I left. After talking to several experts in the industry, I realized it was worse than that: The manufacturing of PCBs had not changed in 70 years.
