Cirexx Sees Surge in Orders for ECLIPS Technology


Reading time ( words)

Cirexx International has announced that they have received over $1M in orders since launching their ECLIPS technology for antenna and communications applications.  ECLIPS (Embedded Cooling Layer – Integrated Power System) is a system of producing high-power RF/microwave Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) employing an embedded low-CTE, thermally engineered metalized heat-sink layer which has superior thermal conductivity characteristics.

The Cirexx ECLIPS technology serves as an alternative to co-fired ceramics and hybrid integrated circuits.  The item is essentially a common Printed Circuit Board, made from otherwise typical RF/microwave Printed Circuit Board materials and processes.  But with a high thermal conductivity and very low CTE the user can direct attach and wire-bond bare die such as GaN and GaAs.  The other electronic components on the board can be standard “plastic parts” attached in a standard process such as a vapor phase soldering.  This results in an electronic board system that is smaller, lighter weight, easier to make revisions to and certainly much less costly than the ceramic hybrid, all-die alternative.            

Cirexx President and CEO Philipp Menges said, “The ECLIPS solution is another example of our commitment to remain at the forefront of RF/Microwave PCB technology.”  He added, “We have had a very enthusiastic acceptance from RF engineers looking for a cost effective, high power alternative.”

Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to… Smart Data

04/07/2021 | Sagi Reuven and Zac Elliott, Siemens Digital Industries Software
Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.
