August 2016 • The PCB Magazine 101 5 Against the Density Wall: Landless Vias Might be the Answer I saw my first landless via multilayer while visiting NEC in Japan in 1985. You may not know much about land- less vias. This has been a well-kept secret for the last 30 years, possibly because it is not permitted on military boards, and therefore, discouraged in all IPC standards. 6 Standard of Excellence: The Future is in Fine lines Resplendent in the kilt, EIPC chairman Alun Morgan welcomed a large and enthusiastic gathering of printed circuit professionals from all over Europe and as far afield as the USA, Canada and Rus- sia, to the EIPC Sum- mer Conference 2016 in Edinburgh, Scotland's cosmopolitan capital city. 7 Weiner's World The way that I see the problem relates to over- capacity for fabricators in the consumer segment of devices with flat panel dis- plays—mobile and other- wise—as well as a decline in notebook PCs, TVs and other household and por- table electronic devices. 8 Happy's Essential Skills: Understanding the Concept of Managing Management Time You can get the most value out of monkey management and one- minute management by using these principles together. Who knows? With these techniques, maybe you'll have a chance to take care of your own work instead of everyone else's! 9 Catching up with Sunrise Electronics' Ashok and Jigar Patel I had been hear- ing about Sunrise Electronics for many years, so when Ashok asked me to come and see them for my- self, I jumped at the chance. It was one of the most amazing plant tours that I've been on in a long time. I wanted to know more, so we sat down and had a chat. J EPTE Newsletter: Transparent Circuits Gaining in Popularity Transparent printed circuits were a popular item show- cased at the JPCA Show 2016. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) use to be the dominant material used for transparent substrates in optical circuits and devices and generated a huge amount of sales from touch screen panels.
