90 PCB007 MAGAZINE I DECEMBER 2019 1 Punching Out! Trust Is a Major Factor in M&A Transactions E Trust is critical in M&A trans- actions. Both parties are natu- rally suspicious of each other, and tensions run high even in the smoothest of deals, so any small molehill can be magni- fied into Mt. Everest. To avoid bigger problems, Tom Kastner emphasizes the importance of establishing trust from the beginning and continuing to be trustworthy throughout the process. 2 Emerging Themes: Day 2 Coverage of productronica 2019 E Day two at productronica, and the themes emerge: 5G, high- speed, low-loss, and new for- mulations. These were the catchphrases of the materials suppliers. It is clear from all the conversations that designers and board specifiers need to learn all they can about the new materials emerging on the market. 3 Chinese Review: The 2018 NTI-100 Top Global PCB Fabricators E Yonglin Gong, senior engineer, deputy secretary-general of the China Printed Circuit As- sociation and editor-in-chief of CPCA Printed Circuit Informa- tion Magazine, takes a look at the NTI-100 data and provides his analysis from the Chinese perspective. 4 EPTE Newsletter: Monocoque Printed Circuits—An Update E Wiring with flexible circuits could be a practical solution. Nowadays, most mobile device manufacturers are consuming huge amounts of thin, flexible circuits to attach on the sur- face of the housing in limited spaces. However, the cost of flexible circuits and assembling them is another headache for device manufacturers because they are not negligible in the whole cost of the devices.
