56 The PCB Design Magazine • July 2015 MilAero007 Highlights Enigma Interconnect Now AS9100 Aerospace Certified Enigma Interconnect is now fully certified to the AS9100 Aerospace Standards. Enigma's consistent implementation of best business practices in quali- ty assurance, major investments in technology and exceptional customer service have been recog- nized as reaching the high standards demanded by such organizations as the Department of Defense, NASA, and the Federal Aviation Administration. American Standard Circuits Attending the 2015 International Paris Air Show American Standard Circuits CEO Anaya Vardya will be part of a group of companies from Illinois at- tending this year's International Paris Air show to be held from Monday, June 15 to Sunday, June 21 at Le Bourget Exhibition Center outside of Paris. Flexible Circuits and UAV Applications The utility offered by flexible circuits in UAVs mim- ics the advantages that make it popular in other portable electronic applications: lightweight, thin, highly reliable, flexible during use, and possessing an ability to electrically connect across multiple lay- ers as part of a complete packaging interconnect solution. Wearable Technology and Flexible Circuits Flexible circuits are an ideal fit for wearable technol- ogy. Wearable electronics need to be light, dense and bendable. While what is currently considered standard flexible circuit technology is more than adequate for many the wearable products, there are requirements that may be pushing the bound- aries a bit. Flexible Circuit Materials for High-Temperature Applications To meet the increasing needs for flexible circuit materials for high-temperature applications, new test methods will need to be developed. These new methods will assign new ratings that are con- sistent with actual performance. TTM and Viasystems Receive FTC Clearance for Acquisition The United States Federal Trade Commission has closed its investigation into TTM's proposed ac- quisition of Viasystems and the parties are free to complete the transaction. AT&S Receives Wiener Börse Award AT&S AG is the winner of the "Small& Mid Cap" cat- egory of the Wiener Börse Award 2015. The special- ist jury awarded AT&S the first place in this category because of its outstanding performance in 2014, its excellent investor support and its high liquidity. Dynamic & Proto Circuits Names Matrix Electronics Supplier of the Year Dynamic & Proto Circuits Inc. (DAPC) named Matrix Electronics Limited as their Supplier of the Year. Each year, this award is granted to the sup- plier who demonstrates the most excellent track record for product quality, delivery and supply chain resourcefulness. Prototron Circuits' Tucson Facility Purchases New Chemcut Etcher Prototron Circuits recently purchased a Chem- cut XLI-30 Alkaline Etch with Resist & Tin Strip modules for its Tucson facility. According to Kim O'Neil, general manager, this etcher will allow Prototron to produce fine line etching process materials as thin as 2 mil core inner-layers and will allow the company to continue its path towards very fine lines and spaces as well as complex RF geometries. Multilayer Technology Passes AS9100 Surveillance Audit Multilayer Technology has passed its AS9100C surveillance audits. The audit consisted of 2.5 days of intense auditing by a registrar. All departments were completely audited to ensure compliance to the AS9100C Certification. This marks the five- year anniversary that Multilayer has maintained this aerospace certification. 56 The PCB Design Magazine • July 2015
