Do Materials Matter James Francey
How Do Material Qualities Differ for HSD Versus mmWave Circuits?
Growing use of millimeter-wave (mmWave) frequencies for applications such as automotive radars, Fifth Generation (5G) wireless networks, and satellite communications (satcom) mandates careful selection of printed-circuit-board (PCB) materials specially formulated to transmit signals at frequencies to 70 GHz and higher. At the same time, digital signals are moving at higher…

Why So Many Circuit Materials?
Printed electronic circuits are part of everything we do, in growing numbers of electronic devices for computing, communications, transportation and many other functions. Those circuits, once so simple, now embrace many technologies, including analog, digital, DC power, and RF/microwave signal paths. To design printed circuit boards (PCBs) for those…

A Tour of the New Isola Factory: Investing in North America
A Tour of the New Isola Factory: Investing in America
I recently toured Isola’s new 118,000-squarefoot low-volume, high-mix manufacturing facility in Chandler, Arizona. The facility’s construction began in 2020 and, like many building projects, was delayed because of the COVID19 pandemic. Building a new factory during the pandemic was certainly a challenge but the team persevered and the new greenfield…

Machining Materials for Multilayer Circuits
Electronic products continue to add functions in smaller packages, even for traditionally large systems such as computer servers and wired telecommunications networks. Multilayer circuits are essential for providing more electronic capabilities in smaller sizes, often relying on highly integrated circuits (ICs) and surface-mount-technology components to fit all the functions.
