LPKF Laser & Electronics has announced it will exhibit at the 2013 DesignCon Expo, which takes place January 29-30 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif. From booth 870, LPKF will highlight its line of rapid PCB prototyping equipment by demonstrating its best-selling PCB milling machine, the ProtoMat S63.

Capable of producing double sided PCBs in less than an hour, the ProtoMat S63 is a benchtop PCB milling machine perfect for any engineering environment. Its specifications include 60,000 rpm spindle speed, 150 mm/s travel speed, and it boasts features such as the fiducial recognition camera which eliminates the need for set pins, and the 15-position automatic tool change which automates board production. These features make the ProtoMat S63 ideal for working on applications ranging from digital and analog to RF and microwave.

In-house PCB prototyping is an essential part of the R&D process, saving users time and money over outsourced prototyping alternatives. By eliminating errors early in the design process rather than late, late change fees are eliminated and time-to-market periods shrink. LPKF offers a range of milling machines and laser systems to fit every technical and budget requirement, as well as SMT finishing and assembly equipment.
