Capabilities reinforce the importance of traceability

Capabilities reinforce the importance of traceability
The importance of traceability is growing as companies look for ways to brings costs down as the production of highly advanced electronic assemblies increases. Tracking processes for OEM and CEM manufacturers is now key for successful production. In answer to this requirement, Altus Group has provided capabilities on the market thanks to its work with companies like YJ Link.

Five ways to mitigate PCB component availability problems

Five ways to mitigate PCB component availability problems
The electronics design world is by now aware that there is a very serious components shortage. Allocation and shortages hit every few years, but this one seems to be the worst in recent memory, the hardest hit seem to be ceramic capacitors, but other passives as well as a variety of connectors and silicon parts are also caught up in the shortage storm.

Thermal efficient MCPCB enters general lighting market

Thermal efficient MCPCB enters general lighting market
LED thermal management company, Cambridge Nanotherm has launched Nanotherm MCPCB - according to the company the lighting industry’s most thermally-efficient and most cost-effective metal-clad PCB. Thanks to a recent technological breakthrough regarding the company’s patented electro-chemical process, which creates a 20μ-thick dielectric layer of alumina atomically bonded to the aluminium board, Cambridge Nanotherm has been able to radically drive down the cost of Nanotherm MCPCB.
