Ventec’s Martin Cotton to Present Paper on PCB Design Process at SMART Group European ConferenceSeptember 7, 2015 | Ventec Europe
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Ventec Europe, a world leader in the production of polyimide & high reliability epoxy laminates and prepregs, today announced that Martin Cotton, Director OEM Technology, will present a paper entitled 'Making the right decisions at the right time in the PCB design process' at the 2015 SMART Group European Conference & Exhibition. The conference will be held on the 22-23rd September at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), one of the UK’s leading science and research facilities, located in Teddington, London.
In PCB design, a key decision influencing the process and the eventual outcomes (quality, yield, cost) is the selection of material, particularly when the PCB in question requires significant performance parameters to be met. Martin's presentation will highlight the processes that lead to successful design and will explore how errors can be avoided that lead to risk, potential problems and compromises.
Martin commented: 'Over two days, The SMART Group Conference & Exhibition offers delegates and key suppliers of materials, equipment and testing services the opportunity to meet, network and discuss the latest industry developments and trends. Ventec and the SMART Group have a strong history together and we are excited about our participation at this year's European Conference.'

Panasonic’s Darren Hitchcock spoke with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team on the complexities of moving toward ultra HDI manufacturing. As we learn in this conversation, the number of shifting constraints relative to traditional PCB fabrication is quite large and can sometimes conflict with each other.
MKS’ Atotech, a leading surface finishing brand of MKS Instruments, will participate in the upcoming IPCA Expo at Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC) and showcase its latest PCB manufacturing solutions from September 13 – 15.
Flexible circuit applications can be as basic as furnishing electrical interconnect between two conventional circuit board assemblies, or to prove a platform for placing and interconnecting electronic components. During the planning and pre-design phase of the flexible circuit, there will be several material and process related questions that need to be addressed. Most flexible circuit fabricators welcome the opportunity to discuss their customers’ flexible circuit objectives prior to beginning the actual design process.
Electronics are continually evolving, driven by innovations in printed circuit board technology. Flexible PCBs have emerged as a revolutionary force, reshaping the PCB industry and influencing the design and functionality of countless electronic devices. Some believe that flexible PCBs are a relatively newer technology, but as we will see, that is not true. Since I’m an instructor, here’s a short history lesson on how we got here and what we can expect.
Can digital and/or high throughput manufacturing be applied to circuit boards? Can stretchable electronics be produced without sacrificing processing capabilities?
