88 DESIGN007 MAGAZINE I FEBRUARY 2021 Liquid Wire Delivers Best-in-Class Performance in NextFlex Study of Printed Stretchable Conductor Systems E Liquid Wire Inc. announced that it has joined the NextFlex community, whose mission it is to advance U.S. manufacturing of flexible hybrid electronics (FHE) by fostering tech- nology innovation and commercialization. Lenthor Engineering Renews Registration of ITAR, SAM E Lenthor Engineering, Inc., a California based designer, manufacturer and assembler of rigid- flex and flex printed circuit boards, has recently received notice of compliance with and renewed registrations for both ITAR and SAM. Flexible Thinking: Flexible Circuits Vs. Flexible Hybrid Electronics— Where's the Line? E e line separating polymer thick film flexible circuit assemblies from flexible hybrid elec- tronics, exists but it is not hard and bright. e introduction of new flexible circuit manufac- turing technologies and materials including stretchable substrates has created a surge of interest in their use. North American PCB Industry Sales up 4.5% in December E IPC announced the December 2020 findings from its North American Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Statistical Program. e book-to-bill ratio stands at 1.05. Total North American PCB shipments in December 2020 were up 4.5% compared to the same month last year. Consider This: Advancements in Printed Circuit Manufacturing Equipment E Computers, lasers, and artificial intelligence are infiltrating every area of the PCB manufac- turing facility. e interconnecting intelligence allows for quicker file processing, higher accu- racy, and vastly improved yields. Flex Talk: Demystify Flexible Stack-ups E e sheer number of flexible laminate materi- als and constructions can be a bit daunting for those new to flex and rigid flex design. Tara Dunn sits down with Jeff Martin from Omni PCB to hear his insight into flexible laminates and his advice when working on a flex stack up. Nano Dimension Strengthening its Lead- ership Position in 3D Printed Electronics with AME Design Methodology E Nano Dimension Ltd., a leading additively manufactured electronics/printed electronics) provider, offers quick solutions and easy access to complex PCBs and 3D printed electronics. Its unique and novel technology allows for rapid prototyping and production of high-per- formance electronic devices (Hi-PEDs™). Flex CCL Supplier Taiflex Posts Strong Results in December E Taiflex Scientific Co. Ltd, a Taiwanese manu- facturer of flexible copper clad laminate (CCL) material for flex PCBs, has reported consoli- dated revenue of NT$782 million ($27.9 mil- lion at $1:NT$28.02) for December 2020, up by 18.5% from December 2019 figures.
