Teradyne Inc.'s Connection Systems Division and Taconic have signed a joint agreement to manufacture and market Taconic's patent-pending TacPreg circuit board material for large format printed wiring board (PWB) applications. The material will be manufactured at Teradyne's facility in La Verne, California and Taconic's plants in Petersburgh, New York, and Mullingar, Ireland.

"This alliance with Teradyne allows Taconic to rapidly translate its substantial microwave laminate position into a visible location on the technology roadmap for high-speed digital applications," said Jim O'Keefe, Taconic's co-CEO. "TacPreg enables the manufacture of dimensionally stable 20-plus-layer PWBs since the high temperature PTFE/ceramic composite shows little movement at conventional PCB press cycles," he explained.
