Innovative Circuits Receives Certification to Use Zeta Laminate and Film Solutions


Reading time ( words)

Innovative Circuits, Inc. a fabricator of rigid and flex printed circuits, recently became one of a very select group to be certified on use of Integral Technologies Zeta glass free laminate and film solutions.  The Zeta family of materials is designed to meet the ever-changing demands in the electronics industry for miniaturization along with increased thermal and electrical requirements. 

Zeta Cap is a high-Tg C-stage glass free copper-clad laminate designed to eliminate pad cratering in circuit board assembly.  A related dielectric film, Zeta Lam, allows for ultra-thin (down to 12 microns) HDI buildup layers with improved thickness uniformity and transmission line performance.  The third of the family, Zeta Bond is a B stage glass free bonding film capable of filling circuits and vias.

Innovative Chief Engineer Dale Lovell explains why they took on this challenge.  “Over the years we have had clients who push the technology envelope.  To keep up with this demand we have to continuously reinvest in equipment and building materials.  We felt the Zeta products would provide our customers with another high reliability option to produce thinner circuit boards with better signal integrity.”   

Since 1998, Innovative Circuits has specialized in high tech fabrication of flexible circuits; rigid-flex and multilayer rigid printed circuit boards. The company provides quick turn, R&D and mid-level production services to the commercial, defense and aerospace industries. The company is certified to ISO9001:2008 Quality Systems and ITAR Registered.  To learn more visit www.innovative-circuits.com.

Microvias: Links of Faith are Not Created Equally

07/18/2019 | Jerry Magera and J.R. Strickland, Motorola Solutions Inc.
Microvias connect adjacent copper layers to complete electrical paths. There are copper-filled microvias, which can be stacked to form connections beyond adjacent copper layers, and staggered microvias, which stitch adjacent copper layers with paths that meander on the layers between the microvias. This article discusses the various laser-drilled microvias and presents SEM photographs to begin the search for the root cause of weak copper interface.

Dissecting the IPC Regional Survey on PCB Technology Trends

07/15/2019 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Sharon Starr, Denny Fritz, and Mike Carano talk about the global 2018 IPC Technology Trends Report released early this year—the size of the survey, how it was conducted, the general findings, and regional differences. They also shared their takeaways and regional insights, and the industry outlook over the next five to 10 years.

An Examination of Glass-fiber and Epoxy Interface Degradation in Printed Circuit Boards

07/12/2019 | Bhanu Sood, Michael Osterman, and Michael Pecht, Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering
Multilayer organic laminates, which make up over 90% of the interconnecting substrates in electronics (standard FR-4 represents 85% of the substrates used for laminates), can develop a loss of electrical insulation resistance between two biased conductors due to conductive filament formation.
