Shengyi Technology Obtains UL Listing for FR-4 Grade S1190M


Reading time ( words)

Shengyi Technology Company Ltd. is pleased to announce that their FR-4 product, S1190M, has been listed by UL with an electrical and mechanical Relative Thermal Index (RTI) of 150°C. Recently UL changed the definition of FR-4 to allow already listed FR-4.0 and FR-4.1 to be used in PWBs operating up to 150°C if the Long Term Thermal Aging (LTTA) data passed the electrical and mechanical requirements.  

Shengyi is the first base material supplier world-wide to have a FR-15.0 product listed with an electrical and mechanical Relative Thermal Index (RTI) of 150°C. That product, S1190M, is a brominated epoxy system with a Tg of 200°C and a Td of 355°C designed for lead-free processing. S1170G was the first halogen-free product to be listed as FR-15.1 with a Tg and Td of 180°C and 390°C respectively. Both products exhibit high thermal reliability and excellent CAF resistance which allows them to be used for communication, computer and automotive applications.

S1190M products are listed in Shengyi’s UL File # E109769 as an ANSI Grade FR-15.0. FR-15.0 indicates that it is a brominated FR-4 product with an RTI of 150°C.

Board designers can feel more comfortable knowing that S1190M can be used at higher temperatures than for traditional FR-4s. Other current FR-4 products will also be listed as FR-15 in the Shengyi UL file as customer requirements dictate.

A Guide to High-reliability PCBs from Design to Specification

07/24/2019 | Jeff Beauchamp, NCAB Group
Creating reliable PCBs is an outcome of considering all aspects that can affect reliability as early as possible in the design process. The further down the design process, the more expensive and risky it can be to fix. As they say, everything starts with the design. Because a good board design improves the reliability of the end product and lessens the risk of failure.

Microvias: Links of Faith are Not Created Equally

07/18/2019 | Jerry Magera and J.R. Strickland, Motorola Solutions Inc.
Microvias connect adjacent copper layers to complete electrical paths. There are copper-filled microvias, which can be stacked to form connections beyond adjacent copper layers, and staggered microvias, which stitch adjacent copper layers with paths that meander on the layers between the microvias. This article discusses the various laser-drilled microvias and presents SEM photographs to begin the search for the root cause of weak copper interface.

An Examination of Glass-fiber and Epoxy Interface Degradation in Printed Circuit Boards

07/12/2019 | Bhanu Sood, Michael Osterman, and Michael Pecht, Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering
Multilayer organic laminates, which make up over 90% of the interconnecting substrates in electronics (standard FR-4 represents 85% of the substrates used for laminates), can develop a loss of electrical insulation resistance between two biased conductors due to conductive filament formation.
