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, 2016Sponsored 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, 2016Sponsored by Diamond-MT
XwinSys identified the semiconductors recent market trends and developed a novel XRF technology, named NMT: Noise-reduced Multilayer Thin-film measurement. This innovative approach can be used for in-line inspection and metrology features, to accurately and precisely analyze single and multi-layered elements in ultra-thin films. NMT novel technology can be utilized for in-line applications ranging from localized ultra-thin film stacks to the inspection of 3D localized features to the analysis of defects involving geometries, voids and material elements.
