PNC Inc. Invests in LED Laser Direct Imaging system from Miva Technologies


Reading time ( words)

This 2000L 2LE model is capable of imaging a maximum size 24” x 24” PC board or film size. With any large format film, positional accuracy can be a challenge but the Miva’s dynamic scaling feature can increase accuracy to minimize tolerance build-ups during the imaging process. Due to Miva’s optical registration system, innerlayer drill break-out will be reduced considerably on densely routed signal layers which will significantly improve yields. For sub-20-mil pitch parts or micro BGAs, a 2−3 mil solder dam will be possible to eliminate bridging during the assembly process.

“This LDI system represents a culmination of our efforts to find the most efficient equipment for each and every department in both manufacturing and assembly,” said PNC Inc. President, Sam Sangani.

Again, PNC stands by its commitment to quality and continuous improvement. Taking this next step to improve the manufacturing process helps them deliver the ever-increasing quality standards which they have become well known for.

Why Gold Layer Thickness in ENIG Matters for Soldering

02/07/2023 | Britta Schafsteller, Mario Rosin, Gustavo Ramos, and Joe McGurran, Atotech
The main task of the final finish is to protect the copper pad from tarnishing or oxidation while simultaneously keeping the surface active for the assembly. Electroless nickel/immersion gold (ENIG) is a widely accepted finish in the market that provides a good solderability and capability for Al-wire bonding. A main function of the gold layer is to prevent the oxidation of the nickel layer.

Preventing De-wetting Defects In Immersion Tin Soldering

01/04/2023 | Britta Schafsteller, Atotech
Immersion tin is well accepted as a high-reliability final finish in the industry. Due to its excellent corrosion resistance, it exhibits major market shares, particularly in the automotive industry. During the soldering process, an intermetallic compound (IMC) is formed between copper and tin. One remaining concern in the industry is the potential impact of the IMC on the solderability of the final finish. In this article, typical failure modes in soldering immersion tin are described and correlated to potential root causes for the defects.
