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.”

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.

PCB Reliability: Via Design

07/12/2019 | Greg Ziraldo, Advanced Assembly
When considering the long-term reliability of a PCB, you must take into account any vias on your board. While an invaluable and essential part of board design, vias introduce weaknesses and affect solderability. This article will discuss vias, the potential concerns that are introduced into your board through their implementation, and how to minimize those concerns to acceptable levels.
