Candor Builds PCB with Press-Fit Copper Coins, Selective Hard Gold


Reading time ( words)

Toronto PCB fabricator, Candor Circuits has built boards with press fitted copper coins and selective hard gold.

Candor is able to press fit and plate over copper coin in the middle of PCB surface areas. This technique allows for thermal management in small profiles. With smaller density parts and higher power, thermal management requires a great deal of experience, know how, and a drive to innovate. Candor’s commitment to producing complex PCB boards quickly has allowed them to excel in thermal management.

Candor’s Technical Sales Manager Sunny Patel commented, “The copper coin selective hard gold plating is a process we can do in faster lead times allowing companies to prototype rapidly with peace of mind.

Vertical Conductive Structures, Part 3: Design Tool Techniques

08/23/2019 | Ed Hickey and Mike Catrambone, Cadence Design Systems, and Joan Tourné, Nextgin Technology
New vertical conductive structure (VeCS) technology can reduce layer count and improve signal integrity without the need for sequential technologies. VeCS is different than traditional through-hole vias, microvias, and ELIC designs, which are more expensive and require a high number of laminations, drilling, and plating cycles to build up a reasonable number of layers.

Solder Mask Curing: UV Bump Overview

08/19/2019 | Nikolaus Schubkegel
Ultraviolet (UV) bump, also called UV cure, is a processing step in which the solder mask pattern is irradiated with ultraviolet and infrared light. This step is performed with special equipment that is built as a continuous flow system, which consists of a conveyor belt and tubular UV lamps mounted above and below the belt. Read on to find out more about this process.

Avoiding CAF Failures at the IPC High-reliability Forum

12/31/1969 | Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
Foresite CEO Terry Munson recently spoke with Andy Shaughnessy during the IPC High-Reliability Forum and Microvia Summit in Baltimore about his presentation on the causes of conductive anodic filament (CAF), the dangers of resin starvation, and what advice he'd give to PCB designers to avoid those types of failures.
