Gold Plating Services Installs Technic ENEPIG Process


Reading time ( words)

Technic is pleased to announce the installation of the TechniPad Electroless Palladium process AT7015 at Gold Plating Services (GPS) in Santa Clara, California. GPS is a contract plating service specializing in precious metal plating for the printed circuit board industry.

With the addition of the electroless palladium to the existing TechniPad ENIG process, GPS is capable of providing a service exceeding both IPC 4552 for ENIG and IPC 4556 for ENEPIG. Both processes provide a reliable solderable and aluminium bondable surface. The electroless Pd provides a deposit for gold wire bondability as well as contact applications. The AT7015 has been engineered to provide the stability necessary for quick turn applications under all loading conditions.
