APCT just finished its first year at DesignCon and was thrilled at the outcome!

As a manufacturer of high reliability, rigid printed circuit boards, we were pleased to be introduced to designers and engineers that represented so many industries across the printed circuit board spectrum. As people were finding the capabilities of APCT, we certainly enjoyed finding out about the new ideas and designs surrounding the electronics industry. 

Such a unique trade show, we were not only amazed at the diversity of ideas, but how strongly we were for each other in encouragement and support. It was an exciting time for us to stay current with philosophical thinking and how best to support that thinking with expertise and new equipment.

Thank you one and all who came to our booth. We hope to stay current and connected to you.

Join us next time first thing for an APCT red doughnuts, no through holes just blind vias.

It’s all about coming together as a design community, creating that unique face-to-face dialog. Please visit our booth 501 on the expo floor. We would like to encourage folks share what they’ve learned or conversations they found valuable.  In a series of boot camp, keynote, panel discussions and more on day one (Jan 31st), everyone enjoyed the food and friendship. We hope you find our booth a place that we talk with you not at you.

APCT in the Media Feb 1:


APCT is proud to participate in DesignCon, the premier conference for chip, board, and systems design engineers, returns to Silicon Valley for its 22nd year. DesignCon serves the high speed communications and semiconductor communities offering state-of-the-art design methodologies, applications, technologies, and unparalleled networking opportunities.

APCT wants to stop being the best-kept secret in the Printed Circuit Board industry; we will accomplish this by launching the first in our six series campaign “Who Are These Guys”, which is designed to introduce and educate the PCB industry on APCT’s innovative technologies, customer-first mantra and the incredible staff that truly differentiates APCT from the competition.


Will you be attending DesignCon 2017 Feb1–2 this year?

Hoping for a sweet start at the conference?  Head over first thing to booth 501. We’d love to meet you. Please come by and let us introduce our company to you and offer solutions to your technical and cycle time needs.

PCB Carolina will be here before you know it, drawing many of the best printed circuit board manufacturers to Raleigh, North Carolina to share knowledge and exchange ideas. This will be APCT’s first year in attendance and we’re looking forward to bringing all of our Silicon Valley expertise to the East Coast and meeting new people.

This year, we acquired a board house in Connecticut, opening up a brand new segment of the market to our well-known “Best In Class” service and cutting-edge PCB designs. With a local fabrication facility on the East Coast, we can offer the same quick turnaround and fabrication times our West Coast customers have been enjoying for years and offer local technical support as well.

We operate with a philosophy of Passion, Dedication, and Trust.

Our business depends on the people who run it, and we couldn’t be prouder of our team. We only work with people who are passionate and dedicated about innovation and continuous improvement of our PCB designs and processes, including complex and HDI-specific designs. It’s thanks to our people that we’ve been able to build years of industry trust, providing consistent fabrication and reliable delivery.

This conference is an opportunity for us to showcase the solutions we offer, honed right in the heart of Silicon Valley. We’ll be presenting at two tables during the convention, so please stop by and say hello. We can’t wait to meet you!

Ideas will be shared, innovations will be unveiled, and great conversation will be had all around. As always, we’re looking forward to it.

This year, APCT, Inc. will have our usual booth, where we’ll discuss our thoughts and practices for creating better rigid PCBs, which comes down to the Passion, Commitment, and Trust of the people we work with. We’ve assembled an absolutely amazing team, and we’ll be showcasing the way our people have allowed us to achieve top-notch technology and lead times. When you exist within the ecosystem of Silicon Valley, you have to bring your A-game at all times, and that’s exactly what the APCT team does. We’ve worked very hard to get to a point where we can always say “yes” to our customers, whether they need a new developmental design for their next-gen device or need fast turnaround on a production order.

This year, we’ve also acquired a PCB house on the East Coast. That presence not only supports our east coast customers with technology expertise and faster lead times; it also means more capacity for all. We’ll be looking to connect with any East Coast attendees and talk about how our new local presence will benefit them and allow easy access to industry-leading complex PCB technology. Our principles rest firmly on building Trust with our clients and new partners can expect the same “Best In Class” service we’ve been extending to our West Coast customers for years.
