Welcome to this the latest edition of the American Standard Circuits quarterly newsletter. In this issue we are focusing on fine lines and spaces. It’s no secret that as today’s products get smaller, so must their internal electronics. Many products including medical devices, security equipment, phones and computers are demanding more and more power from less space. Those of us in the PCB business are continually challenged to pack more electronic “punch” on smaller surfaces. ASC is continuously striving to push the limits of this complex & compact technology with the latest equipment and processes and the most knowledgeable team in order to provide our customers with top of the line products for these and many other applications. Check our fine line technology expert John Bushie’s latest column on the subject below.

These are also exciting times at ASC as we continue to update our capabilities by acquiring new equipment. In fact, we recently invested in dramatically improving our existing via fill capability and added a new high pressure hole cleaner.

At mid-year, this is proving to be a very good year and we want to thank our current customers for that. We’re also looking forward to adding new customers in the coming year. So if you’re reading this and have not had the opportunity to try us out, I would urge you to do so today.

And finally, it is with great sorrow that we say good bye to our dear friend, Francis Chackanad, who passed away unexpectedly on June 3. He was a very special member of the ASC team who will be greatly missed.

In Memoriam: Francis Chackanad, 1952-2016

On June 3, 2016 we lost a very special member of the ASC team when Francis Chackanad passed away suddenly.

Francis had served as the President of American Standard Circuits from 1988 until his passing.

All of us at ASC extend our deepest sympathy to Francis' family and friends, especially his wife of 39 years Anniamma and his children Reena, Rigi, and Ronia Chackanad.

"I design a lot of circuits that operate at greater than 100GHz.
American Standard Circuits is the company that I trust to
fabricate my circuit boards. Their knowledge of materials and
extremely tight fabrication tolerances are keys to our success."
