Reading time ( words)

Atotech and AT&S have announced a joint collaboration project with the goal of reducing energy consumption and optimizing energy efficiency of the AT&S production processes in the plating lines manufactured by Atotech.

AT&S and Atotech are leaders in their respective fields from a sustainability perspective. AT&S is committed to active change leadership with ambitious climate targets, specifically regarding annual reductions of their carbon footprint and use of freshwater, by 5% and 3%, respectively. Atotech has been at the forefront of delivering sustainable products for decades, with systems designed to reduce the use of raw materials, energy, and water for our customers.

Building on Atotech’s long-standing commitment to innovation and sustainability, the company recently expanded its internal competency to the development of industrial software solutions, including Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) applications. As part of the collaboration with AT&S, Atotech will provide an innovative combination of IIOT software solutions and hardware optimization which will enable AT&S to reduce overall energy consumption and help them to meet their climate goals.

“This collaboration is a natural product of our companies’ common strengths and objectives. It is an excellent example of our commitment to making a positive difference for our communities and the environment at large,” said Geoff Wild, CEO of Atotech. “Atotech is the only major surface-finishing solutions company to provide chemistry, equipment, software and service in a comprehensive solutions-based package,” Mr. Wild continued, “We are delighted to be able to provide that full spectrum of solutions to AT&S.”

Thin PCBs for Smart Phones: Technology and Reliability Considerations

11/19/2014 |
The next generation of smartphones will demand very thin multilayer boards to reduce product thickness. This paper shows three different manufacturing approaches which can be used for very thin, any-layer build-ups. The technological approaches are compared on reliability level--the any-layer copper filled microvia technology which is to be considered state-of-the-art for high-end phones and the ALIVH-C/G technology well established in Japan.
