February 2022 Issue of PCB007 Magazine Available Now


Reading time ( words)

During IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego, additive and semi-additive processes were a hot topic. But we heard far more questions than answers. Is additive a disruptive PCB technology? Will it displace tried-but-true subtractive etch technology, or is it merely another tool to have in our toolbox? What does a PCB designer have to do differently? Do EDA tools support it?

How much is it going to cost to get into additive processing? Do the numbers really add up? What sort of ROI are we talking about? What equipment am I going to have to acquire in order to begin additive or semi-additive processing? Where’s all of the R&D?

For the February 2022 issue of PCB007 Magazine, we asked a variety of contributors to address some of these questions and share their insights about additive and semi-additive technology.

I recently spoke with PCB Technologies’ Jeff De Serrano, Yaniv Maydar, and Alon Menache about their new venture, InPack. They explain their plans to focus on advanced packaging, miniaturization, and other high-end technology, with much faster time to market, and they offer a view of the global market as well.
