SCHMID Group Installs PlasmaLine at Hofstetter PCB AG


Reading time ( words)

SCHMID Group installed first PlasmaLine comprising ICP etch and sputter deposition of its Korean JV SCHMID AVACO at Hofstetter PCB AG in Switzerland.

It is PlasmaLine D-R tool intended for process development and small scale production (up to 20 half-panels per hours for upgraded tool).

PlasmaLine is a series of modular inline plasma systems for touch-free, simultaneous double-sided or single-sided vertical processing of high end HDI+ PCBs and IC substrates with a capacity of up to 4 panels/min. By combining etch and sputtering process modules, the system can be configured flexibly for almost any application. 

These advantages make the PlasmaLine to a new state of the art solution for high frequency applications, mSAP, SAP and embedding boards:

- High flexibility of materials which can be processed

- Increased capabilities of high copper adhesion

- Low roughness

- High energy savings
