GERLINGEN, GERMANY -- Elekonta Marek and Schweizer Electronic have inked a deal for building prototype PCBs. Under terms of the agreement, Elekonta's prototype customers will be referred to Schweizer for volume production series.

In turn, Elekonta will act as a second prototype source for Schweizer’s production customers.

Other terms were not disclosed.

The fabricators cited an "increasing trend toward high-tech and innovative products in the European PCB market," adding it is a "constant challenge to provide customers with adequate technology samples in high quality which are suitable for subsequent serial production."

In their collaboration and for the benefit of customers, the partners will concentrate on the area of new technologies, the related exchange of trends and the multiplying factor connected to it. Initially, Elekonta and Schweizer will focus on HDI, thick copper, HF, and impedance-controlled PCBs.

"The new partnership will ensure that technology samples can later on be produced in ad-equate quality and reliability in high volumes," said Christian Rössle, vice president sales and marketing at Schweizer.

Elekonta managing director Lars Presche said, "Via this cooperation, we would like to generate for our customers an additional value-add in the product life cycle and to counter the continuously growing trade business."
