ASC has extensive experience and technical expertise in the manufacturing of time critical, high technology RF circuits. We work closely with our worldwide customers to deliver prototype-to-high volume manufacturing of RF circuits.
Some of the suppliers of laminate / dielectric materials we utilize are: Isola, Nelco, Rogers & Taconic. In addition, we manufacture high frequency PCBs with metal heat sinks for the telecommunication and aerospace industries. The heat sinks and PCBs are typically connected thermally and electrically. The metal heat sinks help with thermal dissipation and grounding of circuits. ASC uses commercially available pre-bonded and post-bonded materials. Pre-bonded laminates are typically supplied by Rogers or Taconic. Post-bonding is done via commercially available sheet film adhesive materials, ASC’s patented sheet film adhesives or sweat solder.
John is ASC's Application Engineering Manager and is also a Process Engineering Specialist. He's been with ASC since 2011 and has nearly 20 years of experience in the industry.
John has a long history of being a problem solver for applications that require the superior thermal management and grounding capabilites that metal-backed PCBs can provide.
Lean manufacturing, Six Sigma and continuous process improvement are among John's varied interests in the field.
