PCB design house, cable assembler and box build specialist HCD has revealed how its PCB layout and assembly services have helped film-processing company Filmlight win four ‘Tech Oscars’.

Filmlight produces film-finishing equipment and systems that have been used on films such as ‘Casino Royale’ and ‘The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’.

The company was awarded four Science and Technology Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Filmlight’s key personnel will receive Technical Achievement and Scientific and Engineering awards for the company’s Truelight colour management system, and Scientific and Engineering awards for the Northlight film scanner and Baselight colour correction system.

Gene Holmes, managing director of HCD, said: ‘We have designed and assembled PCBs that are at the heart of all three systems.

‘The Baselight products are particularly complex, employing 12-layer boards featuring high-speed video chips and FPGAs, and fine-pitch uBGA packaging.’

HCD (Homes Circuit Design) was founded in 1996 and is now headquartered in Letchworth, Hertfordshire. The company began as a PCB design consultancy and gradually moved first into contact manufacturing, then cable assembly and most recently box build as the needs of its customer base developed. From PCB design through to final product assembly, HCD has developed by investing in plant and personnel and now offers a complete in-house solution for electronics prototyping and assembly.
