Dynamix Technology comment:
Currently one of the most up to date text books on printed board technology and very well worth the investment. Overall the book is well illustrated but selected chapters could have done with more diagrams and photographs. This is a criticism often leveled at text books in our industry, its not that difficult to obtain useful material from a wide range of sources.

All the areas in a book of this type are covered, a whole section is devoted to the concepts and types of microvia technology used in the industry. The cost implications and design requirements are defined along with the process steps. There could have been a little more on the design issues and some of the problems they can cause during assembly would have been beneficial to the reader. There are a few application examples of microvia most of which relates to telecom and high end consumer electronics.

The use of alternative substrates like ceramic and flex are discussed along with buildup technology which has become very popular, with Japan currently leading the world. This position was emphasised in a recent Mission to Japan lead by the PCIF. It has also been a subject dealt with by the IPC over the last couple of years. Issues relating to the environment are considered specifically where it relates to printed board manufacture. - Bob Willis

Dynamix Technology comment:
"This is an excellent book to have in your library." A refreshing text that provides a more hands on approach and includes practical photographs. It's a good source of information for the circuit board professional and newcomers to the industry.

Dynamix Technology comment:
A complete guide to flexible printed circuit boards.

From the Author: "I wrote Flexible Printed Circuitry as a reference for engineers and purchasing agents - a guide to help them exploit this powerful interconnect technology. It was intended to provide comprehensive information on all aspects of flexible circuitry from design through materials and process to applications. As an instructor in flexible circuit technology for the University of Wisconsin and the IPC I have found Flexible Printed Circuitry to be just what I intended - it's my constant companion and has the answers to most of the questions you might ask."
