E-NEWSLETTER | SUMMER 2021

A MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO
 

Greetings! We hope that everyone is having a great summer so far. Things are going well here at American Standard Circuits and so much has happened since the last edition of our newsletter.

Our entire team is healthy and back at work in the shop and we are growing enough to be looking for more good people in all departments and functions.

We’d like to start by sharing with you all of the new equipment we have acquired. We have installed a number of cutting-edge machines starting with the Vega Ultra R6DL router, which allows us to rout all materials including aluminum and other metals. We’ve added some new Orbotech equipment including the Precise 800 Automated Optical Shaping machine and the Ultra Dimension 800 4-in-1 High Tech AOI solution. These technology enhancements will help to make us the most advanced and flexible independent PCB fabrication partner possible.

We have been getting rave reviews, and thousands of downloads, of our latest micro ebook, The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to…Thermal Management: A Fabricator’s Perspective. We even have plans to produce another book by the end of the year. If you have not downloaded our free books already, be sure to check them out!

And last, but not least, we have recapitalized our company by partnering with Gemini Investors and Plenary Partners with Sikich Investment Banking serving as the exclusive sell-side adviser to ASC. This will allow us to take ASC to the next level, providing us with the financial backing to serve you for years to come.

ASC is back on the road and taking part in live trade shows again. I attended the IMS show in Atlanta a few weeks ago and plan to exhibit at PCB West in October.

It feels good to start getting back to normal and we look forward to things getting even better.

As always, I want to take this opportunity to thank you all letting us be your chosen partner, especially during these challenging times. We look forward to not only working with you but actually seeing you in the near future.

Sincerely,

Anaya Vardya
CEO, American Standard Circuits

Now let’s take that idea to the next level, all the way to the point of a true partnership. The best way to do this is to start meshing the companies into each other by creating cooperative teams up and down the organizations...

DFM 101: PCB Materials
-by Anaya Vardya

One of the biggest challenges facing PCB designers is understanding the cost drivers in the PCB manufacturing process. This article is the first in a series that will discuss these cost drivers (from the PCB manufacturer’s perspective) and the design decisions that will impact product reliability.
