Have you noticed that most of the PCBs are green? Unfortunately, there is nothing green about them. Truth be told, the PCB waste generated decades ago will continue to harm our environment in the years to come. The PCB waste consisting of hazardous substances, which include heavy metals such as lead, mercury and cadmium, and several other chemicals, adversely affect life on earth. There is a need for environmentally responsible manufacturing for RoHS compliant PCBs across the entire consumer electronics sector in today’s time. RoHS directive, which stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances, restricts the use of hazardous materials, particularly found in electrical and electronic components.
The aviation and aerospace industry has witnessed significant growth over the past few years owing to the rising investment by various space and aviation agencies across the globe. It is estimated that the number of aircraft carriers will double over the next two decades.
We have one of the best in class facility for PCB manufacturing and assembly. We boast ITAR expertise, and we follow them and produce the military PCBs. Our company uses only high-class materials for prepregs and core. We use the latest LDI technology for precise traces. Some really hot-shot companies are our clients and blah blah. We and almost all PCB companies have been marketing their service with these lines since ages. Therefore, today we won’t talk about those. Let’s talk patriotism today!

The development of Isola Astra MT77 laminate and prepreg materials has garnered several eye-balls, particularly among PCB manufacturers. These materials will find applications in several mm-Wave systems. Astra MT77 is a low loss FR-4 process compatible laminate and prepreg. Isola Astra MT77 offers exceptional physical properties including broad operational frequency and higher temperature range. These laminates are highly preferred for commercial RF/microwave printed circuit designs and mm-Wave applications.
Drilling is the most expensive and time-consuming process in PCB manufacturing. The PCB drilling process must be carefully implemented since even a small error can lead to a great loss. The drilling process is considered the most critical and bottleneck of printed circuit board manufacturing. A PCB design engineer must always look into the board manufacturers’ capabilities before placing an order.
International Traffic in Arms Regulations, or most commonly known as ITAR, is a set of government rules that control the import and export of Defence-related articles, services, and technology on the US Munitions List (USML). Quite heavy! Sounds more like something related to missiles and nuclear weapons but it has more to it. So, why am I talking about such a serious thing? What purpose does it serve in our PCB world? And most importantly, why should you be reading this?
