American Standard Announces License Agreement With Averatek


Reading time ( words)

Anaya Vardya, president and CEO of American Standard Circuits, announced that the company signed a licensing agreement with Averatek for its A-SAP™ patented manufacturing process.

Averatek’s A-SAP™ is an advanced manufacturing process for printed circuit board fabrication with trace and space as narrow as 15 microns. This process can dramatically reduce the space and weight of electronics systems, provide significant RF benefits and can be easily integrated with today’s traditional PCB manufacturing processes and materials.

When making the announcement, Vardya said, “American Standard Circuits’ RF expertise, in combination with our long term relationship-driven approach to customer development, will allow us to best serve the PCB design community, especially as we learn to fully understand all of the possible benefits of this emerging technology. Our goal at ASC is to always be at the forefront of technology and the A-SAP™ allows us to do that once again. We welcome the opportunity to work with the team at Averatek to redefine the future."

“In addition to the reduction in space and weight, this additive process has significant benefits with regard to high-frequency and signal integrity which makes American Standard Circuits a great partner since they are one of the industry’s leading fabricators of RF PCBs. We are pleased to have ASC as one of our first partners to use the A-SAP™ technology,” said Haris Basit, CEO of Averatek.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

10/07/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
It’s been a busy week for I-Connect007. Managing Editor Nolan Johnson and I covered PCB West at the Santa Clara Convention Center, and, as you’ll see in my article below the place was packed. We have an article about SMTA International, scheduled for the end of October. I think the trade show season is looking good into 2023. People are done with COVID shutdowns and ready to get back to live trade shows and conferences. We’ll be in Minneapolis to bring you the latest news and technical information. We also have a news report about the European Union committing to craft its own version of America’s CHIPS Act. There’s a great interview with Dana Korf and John Strubbe about the latest innovations in materials at TUC. And columnist Paige Fiet explains why she is committed to making manufacturing “cool” again to help recruit and retain young technologists.

EIPC Technical Snapshot: Novel Laser-based Manufacturing Processes in Automotive Electronics
