Isola Group Ltd. Key Developments

Isola Group S.à r.l. Appoints Helmut Kroener as Senior Director of OEM-Marketing in Europe

Isola Group S.à r.l. announced that Helmut Kroener has joined Isola as senior director of OEM-Marketing in Europe. In this role, Mr. Kroener will be responsible for the qualifications of Isola's new and emerging technology products at major European OEMs. He will also provide strategic direction to the company's new product introduction teams and its technical service organization. Mr. Kroener brings a wealth of experience from the PCB industry, ranging from design, manufacturing, engineering, and research and development.Mr. Kroener began his career with Hewlett-Packard (HP) in 1984 as a process engineer, and he was quickly promoted to research & development manager. During his tenure with HP, he spent three years at the HP corporate labs in Palo Alto, CA. Mr. Kroener later assumed new responsibilities as the director of technology at Multek, and he was subsequently promoted to director of customer service and, ultimately, chief technology officer and VP of engineering for Multek's PCB and Printed Electronics division. For the past year, Mr. Kroener has served as a consultant to Isola's OEM-Marketing organization.

Isola Group S.à r.l. Appoints Dominic Yu as Sr. Director

Isola Group S.à r.l. announced that Dominic Yu has joined the company as its Sr. Director, OEM-Marketing in Asia. Mr. Yu will provide support to OEMs in China, Taiwan and Korea in selecting the optimum dielectric materials for their next-generation designs. Most recently, Mr. Yu was head of engineering operations for Multek Electronics' five facilities in China. His prior experience at Multek included senior positions in field applications, sales and general management at both North American and Asian locations.

Isola's RF-Substrate Conversion Program Gains Momentum in Partnership with InnoSenT and KSG Leiterplatten

Isola Group S.a r.l. announced a major qualification win in partnership with KSG Leiterplatten GmbH and InnoSenT GmbH. The joint conversion project among the three companies successfully tailored the dielectric properties of Isola's high-performance I-Tera(r) MT laminate material to match the properties of an incumbent product. Isola's dielectric substrates will now be used on existing volume products produced by InnoSenT, and the printed circuit boards will be manufactured by KSG. The conversion to Isola's materials provides InnoSenT with higher performance material without modifying the metallization of the PCB. Test results show that I-Tera MT delivers a lower insertion loss thereby increasing the safety margin of the system design. Isola's RF-engineering experts used an extensive suite of electronic design automation tools in the conversion initiative with InnoSenT and KSG, including simulation models of the critical test structures used to characterize the properties of PCBs. These simulations and analyses were able to target the required dielectric constant (Dk) of I-Tera MT. Isola's R&D was then able to engineer the dielectric properties of I-Tera MT to match the desired Dk at the operating frequency. Working closely with the technical teams at KSG and InnoSenT, Isola's RF-engineering experts and R&D staff completed the task in only a few days. Subsequently, Isola's R&D staff analyzed the tailored I-Tera MT materials using multiple techniques to verify and validate the desired Dk. I-Tera MT materials are currently in scale-up for production.
