Rapid PCB Prototyping

Fast Flex PCB prototyping with LPKF ProtoLaser
Printed circuit boards made of flex materials (polymers) are recommended for components that require little space, moveable electronics or fast data connections. They are used for signal transmission or wiring and are often used in combination with rigid printed circuit boards. Typical applications include LED lighting, PC and mobile antennas, various sensors and more...

Once again a great success: the embedded world Exhibition & Conference
Once again a great success: the embedded world Exhibition & Conference, which took place from February 27th to March 1st, 2018 in Nuremberg, with 1,020 exhibitors, over 30,000 trade visitors and around 1,700 congress participants from 73 countries! LPKF Laser & Electronics AG was naturally involved as a supplier of economical prototyping processes and more...

LPKF ProtoMat E44 saves a game development
At RWTH Aachen University, the Electrical Engineering Student Council runs the Elab, an electronics laboratory for all students of electrical engineering. For a rally during freshman orientation week, the student representatives planned the development of a game based on the german TV-known "Arktos Super Game". LPKF made it possible to implement the idea at short more...

Bandpass filter 2.4 GHz
A typical question asked by users demands clarification of how high the precision of material processed in an in-house lab is in comparison with the quality achievable in later production. In response to this, LPKF experts conducted a comparative study of three processes: the mechanical processes of laser ablation and milling and the chemical etching more...

Precision processing of high-tech material Titanate
LPKF Laser & Electronics AG tested the high-tech material titanate – a compound composed of ZrO2, TiO2, and SnO2 – with the LPKF ProtoLaser R. The goal was to achieve a higher precision in the HF range, i.e., to ablate 1.78 µm from the surface of the 260-µm-thick compound. read more...

The global LPKF network: LPKF Distributor Meeting in Hanover
The LPKF Laser & Electronics AG headquarters in Garbsen opened its doors for the Tenth International Distributor Meeting. Over 300 participants – distribution partners and representatives – from around the world met on September 6–8, 2017, to exchange opinions and information on market trends as well as the latest more...

Reducing development time with the LPKF ProtoLaser S4
Extreme miniaturization and more computing power, efficient communications between networked, often mobile systems – the demands placed on developers of embedded systems are daunting. With the LPKF systems for in-house PCB prototyping, developers have access to an environment that enables them to accelerate development projects and keep data within their company’s walls. read more...

Education to the highest level
For years now, LPKF has been supporting the WorldSkills Competition by providing systems for chemical-free PCB prototyping. This year the competition final took place in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. More than 1250 trainees from 58 nations competed for gold, silver, and bronze in 51 disciplines – in front of 100,000 spectators from business and research. read more...

Picosecond pulses: 0.9-mm holes in 50-µm-thick glass
As the new YouTube film from LPKF demonstrates, “glass is no longer transparent,” but can be processed “cold” using special laser technology. Glass and other heat-sensitive materials with properties especially compatible with electrical circuits can now be cut, ablated, or structured in a damage-free process. read more...

Precise geometries on LTCC materials
The new LPKF ProtoLaser U4 with a UV laser source is an innovative multitalent recommended for numerous material groups thanks to its UV wavelength of 355 nm: for machining RF filters or patterning LTCCs or completely new material groups for electronics more...
