Next Generation of Gold PCB Surface Finish Reducing Cyanide & Toxic/Corrosive Acids

By November 20, 2016News

MACFEST is a collaborative research project involving partners A-Gas Electronic Materials, C-Tech Innovation, MTG Research, the Institute of Circuit Technology, the University of Leicester and Merlin Circuit Technology. Partly funded by Innovate UK (formerly the Technology Strategy Board), the aim of the project is the development of new “universal” PCB surface finishes which are suitable for both solder reflow and gold wire bonding

This will help PCB manufacturers meet the performance demands for high value electronic systems, ensuring long term reliability, even in harsh environmental conditions. In addition, the use of deep eutectic solvents (DESs), a patented technology of the University of Leicester, offers the ability to significantly reduce the environmental impact of a number of PCB plating technologies, reducing the requirements for use of cyanide and toxic/corrosive acids in plating baths

The webinar will be presented by Tom Jones Merlin Circuits, Karl Ryder Leicester University and organised by Bob Willis

The webinar will provided detailed results from the project, performance testing and practical assembly trials conducted by Bob Willis in Sweden

After each webinar there is a Q&A session which provides ample time for all delegate questions to be answered. However if a delegate has a process example they would like cover in the webinar it will need to be provided in advance of the session. A copy of the slides is sent to each delegate after the webinar
