TUALATIN, ORLPKF will host a webinar Apr. 18 on creating molded interconnect devices (MIDs) with laser direct structuring.

LPKF market development representative Shane Stafford will present the webinar with Stephan Schmidt, president of LPKF North America, and Don Porter, LPKF global accounts manager.

3D molded interconnect devices are thermoplastic parts that combine circuitry, connectors, and housing into a single part. In the webinar, viewers will learn how MIDs use both mechanical and electrical design and the benefits they carry. Laser direct structuring is a three-step process for manufacturing MIDs. LDS has the ability to etch complex circuitry onto the surface of MIDs.

The presentation will run approximately 30 min. and will be followed by a Q&A.

Eastern-US: China’s New Competitor?

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
