FEBRUARY 2022 I PCB007 MAGAZINE 111 IPC APEX EXPO offi- cially opens today, and as Crosby, Still and Nash once sang, "It's been a long time coming." The last live IPC APEX EXPO was held two years ago and was—for many of us—the last trade show we would attend before the pandemic hit. The combination of solder mask printing and legend printing seems an obvious and attractive solution, like bringing chocolate and vanilla together. Still, the gain would rely on obtaining both functionalities without adding complexity. In this column the story continues. Nolan Johnson speaks with Tarja Rapala-Virtanen, technical director of the EIPC, who breaks down the current state of the European market and which technologies and market segments are seeing growth. Over the past year, I-Connect007 has published more than 4,000 news items, nearly 300 articles, and 350 columns from the leading expert voices in the industry. We also have interviewed dozens of fabricators, assemblers, and designers on the most relevant and pressing topics in the ever-evolving PCB industry. IPC's January 2022 Economic Outlook report finds that supply chain chal- lenges remain acute and have improved little from the previous month. Shortages continue to hamper production levels and lead times remain long. At IPC APEX EXPO 2022 in San Diego, Ventec Interna- tional Group Co., Ltd. (6672 TT) premiered 'aerolam' in the US market. A base-material solutions set, aerolam is specifically curated for the diverse and unique requirements of aerospace and defense applications.
