Reading time ( words)

Insulectro, a leading supplier of materials for use in the PCB and printed electronics industries, announces it will hold a Technical Summit in their Mountain View, CA branch on Wednesday, April 22, 2015. The Summit follows Insulectro’s tradition of similar “standing room only” events in Lake Forest, CA; Minneapolis, MN; and Manchester, NH over the past year.

This first Insulectro Tech Summit for 2015 will focus exclusively on high speed digital products from longtime PCB laminate supplier Isola (isola-group.com) with key topics presented by Isola and Insulectro experts.

The agenda includes a featured presentation by industry expert Lee Ritchey entitled “Differential Pair Skew & Materials Selection.” Isola has recently introduced Chronon™ to the marketplace, a laminate whose electrically invisible reinforcement eliminates skew issues in next generation High Speed Digital designs.

Other topics include: “Laminate Fundamentals and Their Impact on Design,” “I-Tera® MT for HSD Designs for Improved Reliability,” “Tachyon and Chronon™ - Best-in-Class Materials for Loss and Skew,” and a review of Isola Resources available to designers and OEMs.

“Insulectro is offering a new array of Isola products that are truly exciting for our customers,” commented Product Management Vice President Jason Marsh. “We are debuting these new high speed digital products to facilitate next generation designs. On the technical side, circuit boards are continuing to become thinner, smaller, and faster. OEM designers are demanding a new breed of materials with lower loss and lower Dk to design and build boards that were never before possible.”

Ken Parent, VP of Sales for Insulectro added, “This Tech Summit promises to be both exciting and informative to OEMs in Silicon Valley. Several of these new laminates stand without peer in how they perform for the new demanding designs we are seeing. As a materials supplier, we are very pleased to be able to introduce a host of exciting products to the electronics industry at our Mountain View Tech Summit.”

The event, held at Insulectro’s Silicon Valley headquarters, 650 Clyde Court, Mountain View, CA, with coffee and bagels at 8:30 am. The event is expected to wrap up around 2:00 pm with a social hour to follow. Lunch will also be served. Reservations can be made by emailing bmorse@insulectro.com or phoning (949) 587-3200.
