EMC Launches 112Gb/s Design and New IC Substrate Materials at DesignCon 2022

Reading time ( words)

Applications in 5G, IOTs, edge computing, AI, data center and emerging cloud technologies have called for increased transmission speed and bandwidth. These requirements drove EMC to develop advanced technologies like PCIe 5.0/ 6.0, 5G/ 6G, 112 Gb/s or even 224 Gb/s Serdes Speed for 800G and future 1.6TB Ethernet applications. 

At DesignCon 2022, EMC will highlight extreme low loss materials EM-892K / EM-892K2 (“K” indicates low Dk/Df glass, while “K2” stands for next generation low Dk/Df glass). These materials have been the best in-class performers since 2020.  Both materials have been formulated with EMC’s cutting-edge Halogen-Free technologies to enable EM-892K to reach Dk 2.9 / Df 0.0017 and EM-892K2 to achieve Dk 2.8 / Df 0.0013@10GHz. Both versions of EM-892K can withstand a minimum of 7 lamination cycles. Numerous Tier-1 OEMs, ODMs and PCB fabricators have already qualified the EM-892K and EM-892K2 materials with HVLP3 or HVLP4 foil to tackle future 800G design challenges.    

Penetrating both ELIC designs and substrate-like CTE applications, EMC has introduced the 2nd generation IC Substrate materials “EM-S530/ S530K” designed for antenna-in-package (AIP) and “EM-S570” ideal for FCBGA/ FCCSP applications. 

In addition to these materials, EMC’s newly acquired local US operation, Arlon EMD, is introducing a new polyimide product 86HP. The 86HP uses a unique polyimide resin that has exceptional Anti-CAF performance. Arlon’s 86HP is ideal for use in designs with tightly packed thru-hole configurations, HDI, high layer counts, and in high temperature applications.  EMC and Arlon, jointly welcome global OEMs, ODMs and PCB Fabricators to stop by our Booth #418 at DesignCon 2022 to learn more about our latest product offerings.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

Normally, the holiday season is a slow(ish) news time, but this year just feels different. My opinion is that the technology industry banked up a whole bunch of innovations and new products during the pandemic disruptions, which are coming to market as quickly as possible. The November/December news is full of technology discussion, as my selections this week clearly demonstrate.

The industry news cycle seems to be picking up speed lately. Of course, 30 days into the quarter is about when public companies announce their results, and in the midst of this worldwide financial situation, we’ve got all eyes on anything coming out from our counterparts in the industry. I’ve noticed that global corporate results (Nan Ya PCB and TTM, in particular) do seem to be on everyone’s radar. In addition to financial news, trade shows are popping back up around the world—Europe, India, and a special report from editor Andy Shaughnessy, who took his own road trip to Raleigh, reporting on PCB Carolina, which had its own heyday this year.

I’ve been in Washington, D.C., most of this week, attending and reporting on the IPC Advanced Packaging Symposium. You’ll see more content from me in the weeks and months to come as I sort through and highlight the varied aspects of this ground-breaking event. If you’re in this industry, advanced packaging will affect you, make no mistake about it.
