Elsyca Introduces New Simulation Tools for PCB Copper Balancing


Reading time ( words)

Copper plating is a very complex process that is impacted by the PCB design itself, by the panel layout and by the production configuration.

The ever-increasing complexity of the design and request to deliver in shorter amounts of time are even pushing experts to—and overtheir limits.

In order to support the different players in this process, Elsyca has developed a new product suite for the PCB industry. One of the products, Elsyca PCBBalance will not only provide detailed information on the layer thickness distribution, but also optimizes PCB designs/panels for manufacturing through intelligent copper balancing.

In regard to copper balancing and its importance, Rick Hartley, Principal Engineer of RHartley Enterprises commented, “Copper balancing should be done, not only at the panel level in PCB FAB, but every PCB designer should be taught the many benefits of copper balancing and incorporate the concepts into their board designs.”

Elsyca’s PCBBalance simulation software allows users to master quality by providing detailed feedback on the layer thickness distribution and on top of that, also by generating the most performant copper balancing with a single mouse click.

The most critical areas on the panel will be identified, focusing testing resources on where they are most needed.

Key features include:

  • DFM
  • Identify layer thickness distribution over boards and panels
  • Automated and optimized copper balancing
  • Identify the most critical holes for post-production quality testing
  • Compare different PCB design and panel layouts side by side
  • Download copper balancing results

Nolan Johnson speaks with Michael Gay of Isola and Chris Hunrath of Insulectro about the release of their new halogen-free, high-thermal reliability material, which they hope fills the gap in the market between epoxies and polyimides.

EIPC Technical Snapshot: Supply Chain and Material Price Pressures

04/26/2021 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
EIPC’s seventh Technical Snapshot webinar on April 14 was timely and appropriate. In the context of current supply chain issues and material price pressures facing the PCB industry, particularly in Europe, the EIPC team brought together an outstanding group of experts—each a leading authority in his field—to analyse and comment upon the areas of concern and to respond to questions raised by a capacity audience. As Alun Morgan said, “If you don’t use the European supply chain, you won’t have it anymore!”
