The primary advantage to users of this new development is that customized patterns can be laser machined with lot sizes as low as one in a few business days whereas previous chemical etching processes required two to three weeks and minimum lot sizes of 12-plus frames to be processed.
The micro-etched surface bonded to the PCB exhibits the same assured adhesion strength of BESTs' previous circuit frame designs.
"Customers like the fact that they can custom order frequently repaired areas thereby saving time," claims Katy Radcliff, Product Line Manager of Best Inc.
