Rogers Corporation Releases RO4460G2™ Low Loss Bondply

Rogers Corporation recently released RO4460G2™ low loss bondply with a 6.15 dielectric constant (Dk). RO4000® thermoset high-performance bonding layers have long been used by circuit designers for multilayer board constructions using Rogers high frequency and high speed digital materials where operating frequency, dielectric constant, or high-speed signal requirements dictate the need for high performance materials. The introduction of RO4460G2 bondply now provides designers a 0.004” (0.101 mm) bonding layer that complements the RO4360G2™ low loss, glass-reinforced 6.15 Dk copper clad thermoset laminates. RO4460G2 bondply is an excellent choice for multilayer designs requiring sequential laminations, as fully cured RO4400™ bondplies are capable of withstanding multiple lamination cycles. Visit Rogers at IPC APEX in Booth 500.

BOWMAN XRF: Coating Measurement Element/Solution Analysis

Bowman M Series XRF coating measurement instrument is the ultimate in performance for small x-ray spot sizes on semiconductors, connectors, PCBs. Guaranteed to meet IPC 4552-A. Advanced poly-capillary optics focus the beam to 15μm FWHM; a dual-camera system allows operators to view the entire part, then zoom in with the 150X camera.

Programmable X-Y stage for multi-point measurement or use the M's pattern recognition. 2-D mapping enables operator to view coating topography. Configuration includes 15μm optics and high resolution SDD detector for higher count rates. Ideal for very thin coatings (less than 100μm), applications with short measurement times (1-5 sec.) and testing multiple locations. To learn more, visit Bowman at IPC APEX in Booth 1609.

ENEPIG Has Reached Its Ultimate Performance Potential!

Proprietary ENEPIG process uses Uyemura TWX-40 mixed reaction autocatalytic gold, a reduction-assisted gold bath that meets the demand for thicker gold in ENIG and ENEPIG. TWX-40 plates up to 8 µin gold with no nickel corrosion or deposit porosity. Ni/Pd/Au film provides excellent wire bondability and solderability.

Plus: only Uyemura ENEPIG uses Talon electroless alloyed palladium phos or pure palladium – the most cost-effective palladiums for ENEPIG! Talon deposits directly onto copper, aluminum, or electroless nickel, and is the most stable and versatile EP platform.

Visit Uyemura at IPC APEX Booth 507 to learn more.
