    Stencil Material and Usage
    Advanced Assembly
    Unlike wave soldering, reflow soldering does not inherently include the solder in the soldering process. The solder needs to be introduced to the board beforehand and then melted in the reflow oven. Solder paste can be applied manually with fine instrumentation or, more realistically, modern inkjet style printers can precisely apply solder paste to the pads. However, for even small runs, using a solder stencil currently is the most common process.

    Metamaterials help machines hear
    R&D Magazine
    Amid a roomful of auditory stimulation, humans can hone in on a single conversation and dampen extraneous stimuli. Psychologists have referred to this human phenomena as the “cocktail party effect.” Unlike humans, machines are still playing catch-up in this realm. But a new sensor developed at Duke University may bridge the gap, allowing programs, such as Apple’s Siri, the ability to distinguish specific vocalizations in a crowded room.

    A thin ribbon of flexible electronics can monitor health, infrastructure
    Phys.org
    A new world of flexible, bendable, even stretchable electronics is emerging from research labs to address a wide range of potentially game-changing uses. The common, rigid printed circuit board is slowly being replaced by a thin ribbon of resilient, high-performance electronics. Over the last few years, one team of chemists and materials scientists has begun exploring military applications in harsh environments for aircraft, explosive devices and even combatants themselves.

    Unique single-sided flexible circuits
    PCB007
    The number of iterations, sequences and combinations possible when manufacturing a flexible circuit can create unique product features to reduce hand assembly of wires, create switch contacts, or eliminate connectors. With minor alterations in basic processing steps such as through-hole generation, etching, plating and stiffener bonding, a flex circuit applications engineer can often imagine and configure a dramatically different flexible circuit.

    New graphene discovery could improve future electronics
    Composites Manufacturing
    The University of Wisconsin announced that researchers have discovered a way to grow graphene nanoribbons with desirable semiconducting properties directly on a germanium semiconductor wafer. This could allow manufacturers to use ultra-narrow graphene nanoribbons in hybrid integrated circuits, which would enhance the performance of future electronic devices.

    1st-year nanoscience students advance toward self-assembling nanoelectronics
    Hacked
    First year nanoscience students at the University of Copenhagen have made an important advance toward self-assembling nanoelectronics — tiny molecular circuits that spontaneously self-assemble from chemical substances in appropriate conditions. The research results are published in ChemNanoMat with the title "Template-Guided Ionic Self-Assembled Molecular Materials and Thin Films with Nanoscopic Order."
