Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) present both unique market opportunities and significant manufacturing challenges for product designers in nearly every application segment. Used as accelerometers, pressure sensors, optical devices, microfluidic devices, and more, these microfabricated sensors and actuators often need to be exposed to the environment, but also need to be protected from environmental factors. Although standard semiconductor manufacturing methods provide a baseline capability in meeting these challenges, the unique requirements of MEMS devices drive a need for specialized epoxies and adhesives able to satisfy often-conflicting demands.May 12, 2016 Sponsored by Master Bond, Inc.,
This whitepaper provides a comprehensive overview of parylene conformal
coating, advantages of parylene, and applications for parylene to
protect electronic devices.
As technology continues to advance, devices will encounter rugged
environments and it is vital that they are properly protected. Parylene
conformal coating is one way that manufacturers are giving their devices
a higher level of protection, along with increasing the overall quality
of their products.
Parylene conformal coating applications for Electronics include:
· I/O & PCI Modules
· Power Converters and Supplies
· Other Embedded Computing applications
· Other specialty electronics and assemblies April 26, 2016 Sponsored by Diamond-MT

Decreasing the time to detect, contain and mitigate very low levels of Airborne Molecular Contamination (AMC) is critical for high tech manufacturers. Costs associated with AMC-related quality issues and yield losses are well understood, and adequate reduction of AMC is critical for clean manufacturers to stay competitive. Technical personnel need the flexibility to efficiently collect AMC data with good temporal-spatial resolution anywhere in the clean environment for both sustaining sample plans, as well as to collect site-specific data to converge on AMC sources during troubleshooting events. A brief overview of AMC will be presented along with the latest technology for efficiently identifying AMC sources in the cleanroom.
