Technic gold-reduction packaging technology unleashed

December 5, 2011 – Marketwire — Technic Inc. is entering the last development phase on technologies to reduce gold consumption in electronics packaging and connector applications, a product group it will call "Goldeneye."

Goldeneye comprises equipment, electroplating chemistry, and ancillary process chemistries. Newly developed barrier layers enable improved component performance, while gold replacement technology and post-treatment processes further reduce gold consumption.

Technic expected to release the first Goldeneye products this month, with further releases occurring in early 2012.

"With gold at record valuations, the demand for gold conservation in the electronics industry is intense. With Technic’s Goldeneye Gold Reduction Technology, we are creating an integrated portfolio of technically advanced products that enable low-cost finishes for electronic devices without compromise to the integrity or quality of our customers’ products," summarized Rob Schetty, VP, Technic Advanced Technology Division.
