LaserVia Corporation has announced that it is putting its intellectual property portfolio up for sale.
The timing on this announcement fits well with the recent renewed interest and energy for the advancement of high density interconnects (HDI) which has increased the demand for improved laser drilled blind microvias; including z-axis interconnect using blind microvias. Potentially valuable interconnect advances include via-in-pad slots and other shapes instead of round holes allowing significant reductions in the footprint for surface mounted component pads.
Advances in laser drilling is further possible with a proposed laser drilling machine design that can drill both sides of a circuit board using an inline system for improved processing speeds resulting in lower cost:
The IP for sale includes the valuable US Patents 6,631,558 & 7,062,485.

The first day of the conference had started and ended in the dark—a long and technically intense day! After a convivial conference dinner and a good night’s sleep we were back on the bus, this time in daylight at the slightly later time of 8:00 a.m., for the journey from downtown Lyon back to Alstom’s conference facility in Villeurbanne, and it wasn’t raining. In fact, there was even some sunshine later in the day!

I recently had the opportunity to chat with the new director of sales and marketing at Eagle Electronics, Andy D’Agostino. I’ve visited Eagle before; they are endlessly busy, with good things going on, so I was happy when I learned that Brett McCoy was now COO and another fellow had taken over some of the sales and marketing activities. Andy comes with a wealth of experience and seems to have settled in nicely.
