74 PCB007 MAGAZINE I SEPTEMBER 2019 Nano Dimension Details New DragonFly LDM E Dan Feinberg talks with Nano Dimension CEO Amit Dror about the new DragonFly LDM 3D printer technology announced by the Israeli company on July 24, 2019, aimed at increasing machine uptime and moving forward from pro- totyping to higher production volumes. Eternal Technologies Names IEC as Exclusive North American Distributor E Eternal Technology Corp. has named Interna- tional Electronic Components (IEC) as exclusive distributor for its dry film photoresist products. Atotech Acquires J-KEM International E Atotech has acquired J-KEM International, a global supplier of high-quality chemical prod- ucts and processes for the PCB and general metal finishing industries. Canadian Circuits Acquires Orbotech LDI System E Canadian Circuits has acquired a new state- of-the-art Orbotech Paragon 9800 LDI system, which provides powerful performance for im- aging of HDI, rigid, flex, and rigid-flex PCBs. High-end CCL Demand from Huawei Ramping Up E High-end copper clad laminate (CCL) demand from Huawei has been rising due to a major redesign of its 5G base station infrastructure, prompting Taiwan CCL makers to upgrade their CCL specs to meet the demand. SAP Utilizing Very Uniform Ultrathin Copper E As demand for miniaturization and higher den- sity electronic products continues, the semicon- ductor miniaturization is bringing significant economic and technical benefits, and the semi- conductor scale factor is becoming the master for the associated package and PCB design. MKS Instruments Inks Multiple-system Order for Flex Laser Via Drilling Solution E MKS Instruments Inc. has announced a multi- system order from one of China's leading flex PCB manufacturers for the recently released ESI CapStone laser drilling solution for flexible printed circuits (FPC). CCL Makers Poised to Gain From AMD PCIe 4.0 Server CPU Launch E As AMD has newly launched second-genera- tion EPYC processors, dubbed Rome 7002 se- ries, as the world's first 7 nm x 86 server CPUs that support PCIe 4.0, Taiwan-based CCL mak- ers ITEQ and Elite Material (EMC) are poised to embrace new business opportunities arising from the new server transmission architecture of PCIe Gen 4. Drill Bit Maker Topoint Optimistic About 3Q 2019 E PCB drill bit maker Topoint Technology has seen orders for 5G base station equipment start gen- erating revenues and expressed optimism about its performance in the third quarter of 2019. Innovative Electroplating Processes for IC Substrates E The decreasing chip scales and smaller line/ spacing distances have created unique chal- lenges for both the PCB industry and the semi- conductor industry. This paper discusses in- novative additive packages for direct-current copper electroplating specifically for IC sub- strates, which offer better trace profile and de- liver via fill and through-hole plating.
