MacDermid Enthone Electronics Solutions Launches MacuSpec AVF 700 Process


Reading time ( words)

MacDermid Enthone Electronics Solutions, a MacDermid Performance Solutions business, announces the release of the MacuSpec AVF 700 process, a high performance electrolytic copper metallization for the filling of microvias in printed circuit boards. AVF 700 allows for the removal of conventional process steps such as flash plate, microetch, and predip, while providing a stronger direct copper-to-copper bond for enhanced reliability of vias. With AVF 700 customers get all of this with a very low amount of surface copper plating, requring little to no post processing thickness reduction.

Bill Bowerman, Director of Metallization, MacDermid Enthone, noted, “The release of MacuSpec AVF 700 further demonstrates MacDermid Enthone Electronics Solutions’ commitment to offering the most extensive and highest performing metallization process portfolio available in the electronics manufacturing industry today. Combined with our industry leading direct metallization solutions we can completely revolutionize customers’ bottom lines through cost savings, environmental benefits, and improved performance and reliability. MacuSpec AVF 700 is the advanced via fill choice for 'Anylayer' HDI designs and MacDermid Enthone is the only company that can achieve this unique value proposition.”

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

The big news in the industry this week was the new bill introduced to the U.S. Congress in support of the PCB manufacturing industry. The Supporting American Printed Circuit Boards Act of 2022, which was introduced by Reps. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and Blake Moore (R-UT), incentivizes “purchases of domestically produced PCBs as well as industry investments in factories, equipment, workforce training, and research and development.” The bill is a PCB-oriented complement to the semiconductor-oriented CHIPS Act of 2021.

Improved Thermal Interface Materials For Cooling High-Power Electronics

03/31/2022 | Jeff Brandman, Aismalibar North America
Heat has been a significant concern in electronics since the beginning of the electronics age when hot glowing vacuum tubes were first used to receive and transmit data bits. The transistor and integrated circuit effectively solved that basic problem, but increases in integration resulted in increased concentration of heat, exacerbated by relentless increases in operating frequency. While improvements in electronics technology have been able to mitigate many thermal issues at chip level thanks to improved semiconductor designs devised to operate at lower voltages (thus requiring less energy) the thermal management challenge continues to vex electronic product developers.

It’s been a crazy week, with lots of bad news coming out of Ukraine. (I’m a news junkie by trade, but I confess that some days I just unplug from the news completely to avoid overdosing on negativity.) And, as you might have guessed, this is all having ill effects on our electronics supply chain, which is already stretched thin. This is reflected in our IPC news item that shows an uptick in PCB sales in February, but a drop in bookings YOY, in part due to the trouble in Eastern Europe. But there’s positive news in this week’s top reads. We have a NextFlex article about an innovative flexible technology called flexible hybrid electronics (FHE) and a great interview by Dan Beaulieu. We also have a column by Travis Kelly, who discusses PCBAA’s efforts to lobby for American manufacturing in Washington. And last but not least, let’s welcome our two newest columnists, Paige Fiet and Hannah Nelson, who discuss their excitement about entering this industry.
