Molded Interconnect Devices

Molded Interconnect Devices (MID) are rapidly expanding into new and exciting areas in electronics applications. Once a mainstay in mobile devices, increasing opportunities are now spreading within the medical, automotive, and lighting industries. As these opportunities expand, new materials are being considered to address physical properties and costs related to the application.

IC Substrate Solutions

IC substrates are the critical interface between the semiconductor chip and the conductive component carrier they rest on. Fabricators of these IC substrates require a capability to deliver an interconnect density far beyond that of the typical printed circuit board fabricator. To successfully build these complex designs requires a partner with proven specialty chemicals expertise in high density designs.

Lead Frame Packaging

QFN’s have become the preferred high density leadframe-based surface mount package. But the advantage of this versatile package comes at a price. Exposed copper at the singulated edge of the package solders poorly, preventing conventional solder fillets from forming. The lack of a visible solder fillet inhibits recognition by automated optical inspection (AOI). Furthermore, the smaller solder footprint creates reliability risk, limiting the end-use applications that designers will consider.
