JUNE 2019 I PCB007 MAGAZINE 81 5 Flex Talk: Old-fashioned Networking E We live in a connected world. Information is collected at an astonishing rate. But I some- times wonder what is going to happen to the good, "old- fashioned" networking. Not networked devices, but the act of going out and meeting people in our industry, learning about their story and expertise, and sharing yours—mutually beneficial sharing of informa- tion and resources. 6 IPC Study: How PCB Makers Meet Technology Demands E PCB Technology Trends 2018, a new global study published by IPC, is now available. The survey-based study shows how printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturers are meeting today's technology demands and looks at the changes expected by 2023 that will affect the whole industry. 7 It's Only Common Sense: Take All the Help You Can Get E The best way to become great at anything is to learn every- thing you can from anywhere that you can. I have been for- tunate enough to have had a number of mentors in my ca- reer—people who took the time to teach me, foster me, and help me move forward. 8 Flex Time: Alternative Constructions in Rigid-flex Designs E In his last column, Bob Burns discussed how manufacturers of rigid-flex boards use tech- niques similar to those used by manufacturers of hard boards and flexible circuits, and how techniques vary. That column's discussion was for a standard, straightforward rigid-flex design. This column will talk more about non- standard designs, which can present process difficulties and require extra care for effective yields. 9 Continental Leverages Schweizer, Infineon Tech for 48V Systems E Schweizer Elec- tronic AG and Infineon Tech- n o l o g i e s AG have developed a new technology for the mild-hybridization of cars: chip embedding for Power MOSFETs. J Substrate-like PCB Demand Looks Promising E With more smart- phone vendors look- ing to adopt substrate- like PCBs in their high-end models, and more other mobile devices including notebooks and tablets set to incorporate SLPs, SLP demand is expected to be bullish.
