E-NEWSLETTER | SUMMER 2018

A MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO
 

It has been a busy summer here at American Standard Circuits so there is a lot to report in this edition of our newsletter. One of the highlights is the interview that our company owner Gordhan Patel did with I-Connect007’s Patty Goldman in which he expresses optimism for the future of our industry. I urge you to take the time to read it. Our long-time vice president of operations Dave Olson has transitioned to a role as senior adviser for the company, while veteran ASC employee Mohammed Khan has been promoted to director of operations. This shift came as part of our succession planning. We are certain he will do a great job for us and most importantly for you, our customers. I also had several columns published on what to look for when selecting a PCB partner to ensure a perfect match.

Our two micro eBooks have been well received, with both of them having over 2000 registered downloads. Make sure to download your free copy if you haven’t already (see links below).

And of course, we continue with our ongoing journey to always improve our service by investing in new equipment, including a new scoring machine, our third, and a new hot roll laminator.

Finally, we hope to see you at some of the shows we are exhibiting at during the remainder of this year, including European Microwave week which will be held in Spain this year. As always, we thank you for your business.

Sincerely,

Anaya Vardya
CEO, American Standard Circuits

Material Selection: The Key to RF/Microwave Success

When discussing the right choice for materials, today’s design engineers are more knowledgeable than during the early years of radio frequency (RF) PCB technology. At that time, only a couple types of low-loss Teflon® materials existed. Today, dozens of controlled dielectric constant (Dk) and low-loss materials are available on the market.

COLUMN

Preparing for the Future with the Right Supplier

Is your PCB supplier ready to take you into the future? Sure, they are doing a good job today, but what about tomorrow? What will happen when new designs require boards to be made with thermal or RF materials, or have lines widths down to two mils?
