American Standard Circuits Now Offers Copper Filled Blind Vias


Reading time ( words)

With the use of Uyemura’s Thru-Cup EVF-R plating chemistry, ASC has added acid copper plating filled blind vias to their product capabilities. Copper filled vias lend themselves to stacked via technology, achieved using laser formed or mechanically drilled vias.  Traditionally a staple in consumer products, ASC is seeing increased demand in this technology for high reliability applications.  The ability to fill between 0.0039-0.010” vias at aspect ratios up to 1:1 greatly expands ASC’s capabilities in that market space and further meeting the reliability demands.

American Standard Circuits’ President and CEO Anaya Vardya stated, “We have been producing boards with epoxy filled vias for many years now and that has become pretty standard technology. In the past 24 months we have seen an increasing demand for copper filled vias, so much so that we knew we needed to provide this technology as well. Adding copper filled blind vias puts us in a great position to meet even more customer needs as the demand increases.”

EIPC Technical Snapshot: Novel Laser-based Manufacturing Processes in Automotive Electronics

09/22/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
“Summer is over, now it's back to work!” This was the opening line of the invitation to the 18th EIPC Technical Snapshot webinar, Sept. 14, following the theme of advances in automotive electronics technology, introduced and moderated by EIPC President Alun Morgan. The first presentation, entitled "The fully printed smart component—combining additive manufacturing and sensor printing," came from Jonas Mertin, a thin-film processing specialist at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology.

Plating on Silver: What’s Old is New Again

07/07/2022 | Denis Jacques, Technic Inc.
About three decades ago, immersion silver, a nitrate-based process, gained a lot of market share in the world of PCB final finishes. More economical than ENIG, flat, solderable, and conductive, it had everything going for it—everything but corrosion resistance in a harsh environment, that is. Champagne voids were also an issue, along with line reduction. But the worst drawback, the characteristic that made the part short over time, was creep corrosion. A build-up of copper sulfide salt that grows in contact with a sulfur-rich environment, heat, and moisture resulted in failures in the field. This was enough to scar the process for good.

EIPC Summer Conference 2022: Day 2 Review

06/29/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Örebro, Sweden on June 15 brought a bright and early start to Day 2 of the EIPC Summer Conference for those who had enjoyed the previous evening’s networking dinner, but had resisted the temptation to over-indulge or to carry on their long-awaited catch-up conversations with old friends into the small hours. All but a few were in their seats for 9 a.m., awake and attentive for Session 4 of the conference, on the theme of new process technologies, moderated by Martyn Gaudion, CEO of Polar Instruments.
