MacDermid Alpha Releases Systek UVF 100: 2 in 1 RDL Simultaneous Copper Via Filling and Fine Line Plating for IC Substrate Manufacturing

Reading time ( words)

MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions, a global leader in specialty materials for electronics, announces the release of Systek UVF 100, the newest release in the Systek family of IC Substrate manufacturing solutions.

Systek UVF 100 is a high performance 2 in 1 plating system for the build-up of redistribution layers (RDL). The Systek UVF 100 is a pattern plating process capable of filling blind micro vias and laser drilled X-vias as well as plating fine lines, pads, and other surface features with a high degree of coplanarity and controlled profile. RDL blind micro vias and X-vias can be reliably filled with dimples of less than 5µm and overfill of less than 3µm eliminating dielectric layer thinning concerns while providing an excellent base for further build up. Systek UVF 100 plates surface features with excellent coplanarity, with measured R-values well below 2µm. The trace profile of the traces plated are consistently less than 15% for highly controlled impedance. Process quality is ensured with CVS analysis and control of all additives.

The Systek UVF 100 can be used in combination with the Systek Semi-Additive (SAP) and Embedded Trace (ETS) technologies to meet the finest line and space requirements of today’s IC substrate designs.

“The excellent coplanarity, trace profile, and via filling performance of the Systek UVF 100 is the result of our expertise in additive synthesis in the advanced PCB and semiconductor spaces that enable a new era of organic substrate designs. The Systek UVF 100 process provides manufacturers of advanced IC substrates with a reliable panel-level packaging solution that meets advanced design requirements.” – Rich Bellemare, Director of Electrolytic Metallization, Circuitry Solutions.

PCB Sourcing Using PCQR2

03/30/2021 | Al Block, Naji Norder, and Chris Joran, National Instruments
In a global market, it is often difficult to determine the best PCB suppliers for your technology needs, while also achieving the lowest costs for your products. Considering each PCB supplier has their own niche in terms of equipment, process, and performance, uniform test data from the IPC-9151D Process Capability, Quality, and Relative Reliability (PCQR2) Benchmark Test Standard can help find the right source for the board based on its specific technology requirements.

IPC APEX EXPO 2021 Keynote: Travis Hessman on ‘The Great Digital Transformation’

03/10/2021 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Wednesday’s Premier Keynote at IPC APEX EXPO 2021 came from Travis Hessman, editor-in-chief of IndustryWeek, “a website and magazine dedicated to manufacturing leadership, operational excellence and the technologies that make it possible.” An energetic and animated presenter, a powerful storyteller and visibly passionate about digital manufacturing, Hessman made it clear at the outset that his goal was not to hype an already over-hyped industry, nor to focus on the technologies themselves, but to walk-through the process of transformation.
