Unimicron to Step Up Investment for 5G, AI Applications

Reading time ( words)

Unimicron Technology has maintained its huge capex budgets for 2019 and 2020 are meant to strengthen its IC substrates technology upgrades and production capacity for the emerging 5G and AI applications, rather than just to fulfill requests from specific clients as speculated.

Unimicron said it has ramped up its 2019 capex budget to NT$9.2 billion ($292.92 million) and its 2020 expenditure will surge to NT$16.2 billion, mainly to support capacity expansion for high-end ABF substrates that are now in tight supply.

Vertical Conductive Structures, Part 4: Tuning Your Signal Performance

11/18/2019 | Joan Tourné, NextGIn Technology BV
The objective of this article is to demonstrate the possibility of using a stitching element as an alternative to the point-to-point connections that are used with traditional via technology. Point-to-point connections have the best performance in terms of signal integrity (one via less in the connection that distorts the signal). A via is mainly a capacitive element that causes signal loss/ dispersion.

Multilayer Press Technology Using Magnetism to Produce Lamination Heat

11/11/2019 | Victor Lazaro Gallego, Chemplate Materials
A revolutionary concept in multilayer press technology has been developed that uses electromagnetic energy to heat the existing stainless-steel separator plates with a never-before dreamed-of accuracy and precision. The heating and cooling systems—embedded within a robust hydraulic press inside a vacuum chamber design—are controlled using a temperature feedback loop that guarantees perfect fidelity between the press recipe and the press result.
