Just Ask Happy: The Future of Mechanical Blind, Buried Vias


Reading time ( words)

We asked for you to send in your questions for Happy Holden, and you took us up on it! The questions you've posed run the gamut, covering technology, the worldwide fab market, and everything in between. Enjoy.

Q: Do mechanical blind and buried vias have a future?

A: Yes, especially for the newly invented VeCS technology, which uses a mechanical drill to gain the same density as laser-drilled microvias, but with higher reliability. For more information, read this series on VeCS technology by Joan Tourné of NextGin Technology, which ran in PCB007 Magazine in 2019 (also read Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4).

The reason why the ZIF connector is so popular is that they eliminate the requirement for an added connector. They create a direct connection from the circuit to the mating connector reducing overall weight and cost. Here are a few general facts about ZIF connectors.
