TraX is proud to be supplying the printed circuit boards for the Cederberg Scout Adventure this December.
For many Scouts this will be their first foray into the world of electronics and gives them an opportunity to see what lies under the
hood of todays many electronic gadgets.
This year they will be assembling a GPS receiver, and then will be putting it to good use for geo caching , hiking and map orientation.
We look forward to hearing about the adventures.
Mechanically Drilled Blind Via's at TraX Explained
With the increasing levels of technology on multi layers we are being asked more often about our capability with regards to Blind Vias manufactured in our local plant. Typically Blind Vias are laser drilled microvias and are usually used in fine pitch BGA areas to assist with the routing out of tracks on an internal layer.
TraX does not have the ability locally to manufacture laser drilled microvias, but we do have the ability to manufacture mechanically drilled Blind Vias, such as seen on the adjacent image of a microsection.
Here are some considerations when designing boards with Blind Vias to be manufactured locally using mechanically drilled blind via holes.
