Evolved from a combination of the best technologies of our legacy companies and developed using strict six-sigma process methodology, Affinity ENIG 2.0 is the next generation ENIG process from MacDermid Enthone Electronics Solutions. The ability of Affinity 2.0 to provide excellent solderability, uniformity, and reduced waste, including gold consumption, while adhering to all IPC finish requirements makes it a natural choice for PCB fabricators manufacturing for automotive and telecommunications OEMs. Moreover, Affinity 2.0 is able to deliver process consistency so every pad is the same.
