International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative
QWED is pleased to announce its membership in International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative iNEMI and its participation in iNEMI projects:
The goal of this project is to develop a guideline/best practice for a standardized measurement and test methodology that can be shared with industry and relevant standards organizations. Initial focus will be to benchmark current available test methods and provide pro/con analysis, identify gaps (if any) for extending test methods to 5G/mmWave frequencies, as well as develop reliable reference standard materials for set-up and calibration.
The project will have two distinct phases:
Phase 1: Develop technical guidelines and generate best practices for characterization of ultra-low loss laminate materials in the range of 5-100 GHz
Phase 2: Extend the guidelines to PCB/substrate level characterization
QWED’s contribution will mainly be concerned with its material characterization techniques and devices and where necessary to achieve project goals, also with its electromagnetic and multiphysics modelling software and expertise.
