MARCH 2022 I PCB007 MAGAZINE 99 The electronics manufactur- ing industry is welcoming the release of the European Commission's European Chips Act with its strong support for advanced pack- aging and calling for its swift implementation as part of a broader and equally important strategy to rebuild the European electronics manufacturing ecosystem. Torsten Reckert, president of all4-PCB, discusses their product lines with Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007 editor. In this conversation, they look at the latest trends and requirements from the industry.
