In an earlier column, I discussed the prospect of onshoring PCB microelectronics assembly, rather than offshoring, especially for today’s and tomorrow’s advanced miniaturized medical devices. In that discussion, I detailed a comparison between traditional SMT and microelectronics manufacturing and assembly, and pointed out how much easier it is to bring miniaturized OEM devices, especially medical […]

Medical electronics OEMs may be able to move forward with their prototypes into pilot, medium, and high runs right here on American soil. And it may be sooner than later due in large part to the advances in PCB microelectronics assembly. Advanced medical devices like wearables, portables, insertable, and ingestible products are now either being […]

OEM customers in many cases want to reduce PCB real estate even more than an earlier product generation. The technologies that advanced PCB microelectronics assembly offers these days to do just that provide medical electronics OEMs and other OEMs an array of different options to optimize their product designs, whether they be portable, wearable, insertable […]

Our country has welcomed a new administration in Washington D.C. Again, as in previous administrations, a major part of the new president’s agenda is to bring back to the U.S. manufacturing that has long been handed over to overseas giants. Continue Reading at IConnect007

Today, advanced electronics products are shrinking PCB, component, and packaging sizes and in some instances as small as a postage stamp or even smaller. Therefore, caution has to be taken when products like these are subjected to high temperature reflow cycles. It’s important to consider low-temperature profiling. It is more effective if you can reflow […]

The outlook appears promising in 2021 for electronics OEMs to bring some or most of their manufacturing back to the U.S. In particular, medical electronics OEMs may be able to move forward with their prototypes into pilot, medium, and high runs right here on American soil. And it may be sooner than later due in […]

It has been a difficult year for families throughout the world and closer to home, for our friends, families and customers. On the bright side, we’re thankful that promising Covid-19 vaccines are on the horizon. If all goes well in 2021, we’ll be back to normal as much as possible. But in the meantime, despite […]

With COVID-19 continuing to rage across the United States and the world, hospitals and medical centers are relying on their medical electronics equipment, including ventilators, to help improve COVID-19 patients’ health. EMS providers, contract manufacturers (CMs), and printed circuit board (PCB) fabricators are the strongest link in the supply chain critical for building medical electronics […]

C4 and C2 bumps for flipchip assemblies are among the top techniques that require close attention during PCB microelectronics assembly. Those two are flipchip (FC) bump connection techniques and are crucial for efficient and cost-effective microelectronics assembly. In short, C4 and C2 are interposers that connect a small die in a FCBGA, using flipchip on […]

OEMs and in particular medical equipment OEMs should become familiar with a packaging term now being introduced into PCB microelectronics assembly. This packaging involves a combination of flip-chip and BGA (FCBGA) packaging, Fig. 1. Figure 1: A BGA and a flip-chip interposer. (Source: Thorsten Meyer, Wikipedia, with minor modifications in red) FCBGA is critical due […]
