SelectConnect Technologies Offers White Paper on Sensor Manufacturing Using LDS


Reading time ( words)

SelectConnect Technologies has published the white paper, “Laser Direct Structuring for Sensor Manufacturing.” The white paper details how sensor technology employing laser direct structuring (LDS) results in reduced manufacturing costs, while increasing the physical strength and durability of a position sensor.

Millions of electronic components with complex geometries are manufactured each year through the use of LDS to create circuit traces directly on three-dimensional molded interconnect devices (3D-MID). In addition to position sensors, LDS is used to manufacture temperature, motion, pressure, flow and optical sensors, as well as security shields, medical devices and antennas for automotive, military/aerospace and telecommunications industries.

I was introduced to liloTree and Chief Scientist Kunal Shah by Joe Fjelstad. It seems this small company (with Intel as part of its pedigree) has developed a novel ENIG process that just may shake up the regular chemistry suppliers. This new process is described as cost-effective and ecofriendly while completely eliminating black pad and brittle solder joints.
