88 PCB007 MAGAZINE I OCTOBER 2022 IPC announced the August 2022 findings from its North American Printed Circuit Board Statistical Program. The book-to-bill ratio stands at 0.98. One of the biggest obstacles that PCB manufacturers face is etch factor. Etch factor is the ratio of downward etch to sideways etch and poses challenges to PCB fabricators because it limits PCB design. It can determine how fine of a line you can etch, and it can even affect how close together you can have features. Leading companies in the electronics manufacturing industry are highly inten- tional about their environ- mental, social and gover- nance priorities, with climate change and energy use among the most closely scrutinized issues, an IPC analysis shows. EIPC Technical Snapshot: Novel Laser-based Manufacturing Processes in Automotive Electronics "Summer is over, now it's back to work!" This was the opening line of the invitation to the 18th EIPC Technical Snapshot webinar, Sept. 14, following the theme of advances in automotive electronics technology, introduced and moderated by EIPC President Alun Morgan.
