Quantifying SF6 and PCBs with Nexis GC-2030

Quantifying SF6 and PCBs with Nexis GC-2030
Shimadzu’s technology and expertise in gas sampling has enabled it to develop a bespoke Nexis GC-2030 for Celtic Recycling in Newport, Gwent, allowing the company to introduce GC screening of reclaimed and recycled SF6 gas, a service that no other company in the UK is currently able to offer. At the same time, the new system increased the laboratory’s capacity for the analysis of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in insulating oils.

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.

What is needed for a PCB assembly?

What is needed for a PCB assembly?
As PCB assemblers, manufacturing is all about taking data from you and delivering good working circuit boards. Well, it can be just data - as in full turn-key, or data plus some parts, and PC boards - as in a partial turn-key or a kitted job. By: Duane Benson, Chief Technology Champion at Screaming Circuits.
