Fight for material. What problems are PCB manufacturers solving in the summer of 2021?

They say the world is a global village in which everything is related to everything. I’ll give you a common example. It is not customary for the main news channels to address the area of chip or PCB production. But there's no other way: each of us who has been used to ordering anything online in recent years and receiving everything on time suddenly has to deal with delays. Sometimes it is a few days, sometimes - months. As befits the global village, there are many reasons for it. We also talked about it with Radim Vítek and Ondřej Horký from Gatema PCB. One of the few manufacturers of printed circuit boards, which, thanks to its focus, has not yet had to fundamentally change delivery dates.

Breakthrough batteries for electromobility? Still more talking than reality

We have already written about MGM Compro at PCB Master. A company that grew out of the so-called “Slušovice miracle” in the early 1990s, and today delivers sophisticated solutions to the most demanding clients in the field of aerospace, from Zlín. This time we will look at the story from a slightly different angle. From the one that might interest the reader even more. From the point of view of printed circuit boards. A good reason to interview Grigori "Griša" Dvorský - the spiritual father of the company who is still considered a key innovator and bearer of corporate know-how. And Jakub Henčl - a young "go-getter" who holds the position of the Chief Operation Officer and takes care of the operation and processes in the company.

Rigid-flex is a hit. We'll tell you why

Today, flexible and rigid-flex boards are becoming a dynamically growing segment in the portfolios of electronics manufacturers. One of the reasons is the minimization of electronics and the associated need to use all the available space efficiently. Also, the gradual introduction of technologies for the new generation of 5G networks requires the use of new durable materials capable of operating at high frequencies even in very diverse environments. Another significant impetus for flexible joints today is the production of electric cars, and especially their batteries, which combine weight and space saving compared to conventional solutions.
