Elsyca Offers Free White Paper On How Plating Simulation Raises Yield and Profitability


Reading time ( words)

Problems with non-uniformity in PCB copper pattern plating are typically described as "the FAB problem".  But imagine how much time and money one could save when each player in the process (Design -> CAM -> Production) would be able to identify potential problems at an early stage.

What if the PCB pre-production engineer could upfront identify problem areas for the pattern plating and apply auto-intelligent copper balancing, as part of the CAM process to provide a right-first-time panel layout for production? And what if the process engineer has a software that accurately predicted the impact of plating parameters on the layer thickness distribution to increase first pass yields on new PCB parts?

Check out Elsyca’s new white paper to learn more about how you can save time and money with production-proofing your PCB copper plating.

Preventing De-wetting Defects In Immersion Tin Soldering

01/04/2023 | Britta Schafsteller, Atotech
Immersion tin is well accepted as a high-reliability final finish in the industry. Due to its excellent corrosion resistance, it exhibits major market shares, particularly in the automotive industry. During the soldering process, an intermetallic compound (IMC) is formed between copper and tin. One remaining concern in the industry is the potential impact of the IMC on the solderability of the final finish. In this article, typical failure modes in soldering immersion tin are described and correlated to potential root causes for the defects.

Candor: UHDI Under Development

12/21/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Candor Industries is a PCB fabricator investing in UHDI fabrication capabilities in Canada. To support advanced packaging, as well as the current pace of IC process shrinks, PCB fabrication capabilities must shrink to keep up. Sunny Patel, Candor’s technical sales manager, brings us up to speed on what Candor has learned in their journey to add UHDI. What we gain from this interview is that, while certainly not insignificant, the stretch to add UHDI may be not as far as one might think.

MKS Discusses the Cutting Edge of Technology

12/20/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
During a recent tour of the MKS facility in Beaverton, Oregon, I met with Todd Templeton, Chris Ryder, Kyle Baker, and Martin Orrick. As a reminder, MKS acquired ESI in 2019 and has retained the ESI brand. In this interview, they explain their approach to HDI and ultra HDI, the current state of base materials, and what the future looks like on the cutting edge of technology.
