Conductor Analysis Technologies Releases New IPC PCQR2 Test Patterns


Reading time ( words)

Conductor Analysis Technologies, Inc. announces the release of new IPC Process Capability, Quality and Reliability (PCQR2) test patterns. The patterns were developed by CAT with guidance from the IPC-D36 subcommittee and are used by OEMs to document and compare the capabilities of printed circuit board manufacturers worldwide.

The new patterns are available in 8-, 10-, 12-, 18-, and 24 -ayer designs and provide more insight into complex microvia structures, including stacked and staggered, than previous designs. Additionally, the new patterns require only 12 panels to be manufactured per submission, a 20% reduction.

I was introduced to liloTree and Chief Scientist Kunal Shah by Joe Fjelstad. It seems this small company (with Intel as part of its pedigree) has developed a novel ENIG process that just may shake up the regular chemistry suppliers. This new process is described as cost-effective and ecofriendly while completely eliminating black pad and brittle solder joints.
