New Technology

12

No doubt, new technology seems to be launching daily, from inspection systems to photoresist processes. How can we keep up? How can we even maintain? What’s coming next and how can we best prepare, to stay in the game? This month, our experts give us a heads up on new technology: where we’re at and where on Earth we are going.

The Direction of New Technology Patty’s Perspective

by Patty Goldman, I-CONNECT007 I don’t have to tell you that things are changing fast in our industry. New tech seems to launch daily these days. How can we keep up? How can we even maintain? What’s coming next and how can we best prepare, in order to stay in the game? Fundamentally, what does all this gadgetry rely on at its core? Obviously, PCBs in one form or another. Faster, smaller, finer features for more memory, more capability, more, more, more—all of which affects us when making PCBs. Remember when 5 mil lines and spaces were the latest? When laser imaging was barely imaginable? Yeah, those memories are long gone. But that’s what we all love and what keeps us going in this industry: the challenge to make it happen, to make that incredibly complicated board that two years ago you would have thought impossible. We’re talking new technology this month, to help you understand the ever-increasing, ever-more complicated requirements from your customers. Read about some of the latest here and remember: You can do it! Our first article this month is by that guru of the latest in electronics tech, Dan Feinberg. You probably read his recent articles on the CE
