A Germany-based consortium of seven partners from industry and research is now offering an alternative solution to integrating sensor circuits on application specific integrated circuits (ASICs) via a research project for radar sensors for industrial and process measurement technology, titled "Glass interposer technology for highly compact electronic systems for high frequency applications" (GlaRA).
LPKF Laser & Electronics has announced it will exhibit at the Del Mar 2017 exhibition, which takes place May 3-4 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in San Diego, CA. LPKF provides in-house rapid PCB prototyping milling and laser systems for a variety of applications. At the show, LPKF will demonstrate the compact ProtoMat E44; our lowest cost high precision PCB milling model with an automated fiducial alignment camera included.
The role of laser technology in the manufacturing of electronic components and products continues to grow. For instance, more than 20 different laser processes are used in the production of smartphones, such as for structuring thin layers, for producing three-dimensional conductor structures on plastic bodies, and for cutting glass and printed circuit boards. For these applications, the importance of short-pulse and ultrashort-pulse lasers is continually rising. The joint project “(U)SP Laser Beam Sources for Industrial Use and System-wide Productivity Improvement for Highly Dynamic Drilling and Cutting Applications” (InBUS) focuses on increasing efficiency, available output power, and flexibility of these laser sources.
Attendees of the 2016 International Microwave Symposium (IEEE-IMS) Exhibition will have the opportunity to see printed circuit boards made in-person by visiting LPKF Laser & Electronics in booth #1423. LPKF will be presenting its latest laser PCB prototyping system, the LPKF ProtoLaser S4, for the first time in North America.
Electronics manufacturing equipment manufacturer and laser specialist LPKF Laser & Electronics is launching an entirely new laser drilling and cutting system specifically tailored to the needs of the flexible circuit industry. The LPKF MicroLine 5000 is a UV laser based flex drilling system with a large working area of 21" x 24" and is available in two different laser power classes, depending on customer needs.
LPKF Laser & Electronics has announced it will exhibit at MILCOM, which takes place October 26-28 at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Fla. LPKF provides in-house rapid PCB prototyping systems for a variety of applications and will demonstrate its best-selling prototyping system, the ProtoMat S63, in booth 727.
Attendees of the 2015 International Microwave Symposium (IEEE-IMS) Exhibition will have the opportunity to see printed circuit boards made in-person by visiting LPKF Laser & Electronics in Booth #2218. LPKF will be bringing back the versatile milling/laser hybrid Rapid Prototyping system, the ProtoMat D104.
LPKF, in cooperation with the Slovenian company Aresis and the University of Ljubljana, is developing new low-cost, fast processes for structuring of microcomponents. Maskless UV laser direct imaging (LDI) of photosensitive polymers (photoresists) offers numerous advantages over classic mask projection techniques.
