American Standard Circuits Utilizes Averatek Process for Medical Technology


Reading time ( words)

Mr. Anaya Vardya, President and CEO of American Standard Circuits recently discussed how using the Averatek A-SAP™ process allows his company to better service their medical electronics customers.

When commenting on this process Mr. Vardya explained, “Our medical electronics customers depend on us to provide them with the most reliable PCBs possible. When dealing with medical products it is not hyperbole to say that it is always a matter of life or death. With the A-SAP™ manufacturing process ASC can now provide our customers with ultra high-density technology, 25 micron trace and space, and improved reliability, reducing layer counts and micro via lamination cycles, ultimately simplifying the design.  Other advantages include improved signal intergrity, aspect ratios greater than 1:1 for metal traces and extremely tight tolerances.  Specific to medical technology, this process is not limited to copper conductors and enables the use of gold as a conductive metal to deliver bio-compatibility advantages.  In many instances the reduced layer count allows for improved costs which we then pass on to our medical customers. It’s a win-win situation for both of us.”

Plating on Silver: What’s Old is New Again

07/07/2022 | Denis Jacques, Technic Inc.
About three decades ago, immersion silver, a nitrate-based process, gained a lot of market share in the world of PCB final finishes. More economical than ENIG, flat, solderable, and conductive, it had everything going for it—everything but corrosion resistance in a harsh environment, that is. Champagne voids were also an issue, along with line reduction. But the worst drawback, the characteristic that made the part short over time, was creep corrosion. A build-up of copper sulfide salt that grows in contact with a sulfur-rich environment, heat, and moisture resulted in failures in the field. This was enough to scar the process for good.

EIPC Summer Conference 2022: Day 2 Review

06/29/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Örebro, Sweden on June 15 brought a bright and early start to Day 2 of the EIPC Summer Conference for those who had enjoyed the previous evening’s networking dinner, but had resisted the temptation to over-indulge or to carry on their long-awaited catch-up conversations with old friends into the small hours. All but a few were in their seats for 9 a.m., awake and attentive for Session 4 of the conference, on the theme of new process technologies, moderated by Martyn Gaudion, CEO of Polar Instruments.

EIPC Summer Conference 2022: Day 1 Review

06/28/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
At last, a live EIPC conference and this time in the Swedish city of Örebro, “where history and contemporary culture converge,” a pleasant and convenient location for an event that included a privileged visit to the Ericsson facility in Kumla. Around 100 delegates made the journey and the Örebro Scandic Grand Hotel was an excellent conference venue for the June 14-15 conference.
