RBP Chemical Technology Announces the Release of ONYX™ Direct Metallization System for PCBs


Reading time ( words)

RBP’s ONYX™ is a Direct Metallization System for high reliability and complex printed circuit boards.

The RBP ONYX™ Direct Metallization Process is an integrated system based on a highly conductive form of finely dispersed graphite. Extensively tested and validated, the ONYX™ Process has proven to be versatile and cost effective. Currently the customer base using ONYX™ processes flex, rigid-flex, HDI and high aspect ratio multilayer printed circuit boards with ease and cost effectiveness when compared to conventional electroless copper. The ONYX™ process easily surpasses industry reliability standards including IST (interconnection stress test) and ATC (accelerated thermal cycling).

ONYX™ Direct Metallization System Highlights

The ONYX™ Direct Metallization System is a versatile process and is used in horizontal conveyorized equipment or in vertical immersion mode. Fabricators are able to process a vast array of resin materials including PTFE, polyimide, BT, flex, and basically all epoxy-based resin systems on the market today.

This process is an alternative to electroless copper deposition and provides several significant benefits to the fabricator:

  • Less expensive than conventional electroless copper
  • Smaller equipment footprint compared to electroless copper
  • Greatly reduced water consumption, 4−6 gallons/minute, compared to conventional electroless copper, 26−30 gallons per minute
  • ONYX™ contains no chelator as opposed to electroless coppersimplifying waste treatment

Advantages of Using ZIF Connectors as a Termination Method

03/17/2020 | All Flex
There are many types of connectors and termination methods available when designing a flexible circuit. One of the most common is the zero insertion force (ZIF) connector. The reason why the ZIF connector is so popular is that they eliminate the requirement for an added connector. They create a direct connection from the circuit to the mating connector reducing overall weight and cost. Here are a few general facts about ZIF connectors.
