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.”

Real Time with… SMTAI 2020: Technical Conference Review

10/06/2020 | Real Time with...SMTAI
SMTAI 2020, which was converted to a virtual event, took place from September 28–30. I attend every year, but since there was no keynote in the virtual format, I went straight to the technical conference. This event covered a broad range of topics related to everything in assembly. Over 90 technical presentations are available, but this report covers just some of the sessions I attended.

Real Stories of Applied Advanced Analytics in the Electronics Manufacturing Smart Factory

08/26/2020 | Derek Ong, BscEE, Keysight Technologies
The smart factory is starting to become a reality, as part of the overarching Industry 4.0 paradigm. With the technology enablers, such as industrial IoT (IIoT) and cloud computing, electronics manufacturing operational technology (OT) are on a converging course with traditional information technology (IT). Beyond the challenges of data acquisition and transformation, the true “proof in the pudding” is in the quick ROI from advanced analytics. We will share examples of successful, profitable implementation of applied machine learning (ML) in the electronics manufacturing line, where measurement science meets data science.
