Metrigraphics announced it has developed an advanced process for applying metal layers to circuit substrates and to polyimide layers on multilayer circuits. The process works for both rigid and flexible circuits. Metallization layers can range in thickness from 10 microns to over 100 microns. Substrates can range up to 12" x 12" or 144 square inches.
SemiGen Inc., an ISO and ITAR registered RF/Microwave assembly, automated PCB manufacturing, and RF Supply Center, offers PIN diodes that feature low capacitance and resistance, high reliability, and easy bonding with F.A.C. mesas. These devices are typically manufactured with either a robust thermal-oxide passivation or ceramic glass for durable high-power applications. These diodes are made with a grown junction P++ layer that yields abrupt junction structures.
RFMD, a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency solutions, announced it has signed a $9.7 million agreement with the Manufacturing and Industrial Technologies Directorate within the Air Force Research Laboratory(AFRL) to transfer and produce a 0.14 micron Gallium Nitride (GaN) monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) technology. The technology will be scaled to 6-inch diameter wafers using RFMD's industry-leading 6-inch GaN-on-Silicon Carbide (SiC) manufacturing line.
Micron Technology Inc., one of the world's leading providers of advanced semiconductor solutions, announced its collaboration with Broadcom Corp. to develop the industry's first solution designed for customers challenged by an intrinsic DDR3 timing parameter called tFAW, or four activate window.
Michael Casper, president & CEO of UltraSource Inc., an industry leader in delivering thin film on ceramic microchip manufacturing solutions, is pleased to announce the formalized addition of a new fabrication processing note on the company's website under Capabilities/Solutions titled: Ultra-Thin Substrates -- “Thin is In! (And We Can Help)”.
e2v aerospace and defense Inc. (e2v a&d), a leader in RF power, imaging and hi-rel semiconductor solutions, announced a life extension program for selected memory devices of Micron Technology Inc. (Micron), one of the world’s leading providers of advanced memory solutions.
Ohmega Technologies has introduced OhmegaPly® MTR™ Technology, which allows thin film resistors to be built within a printed circuit trace that is less than 100 microns (0.004”) wide. Using standard subtractive printed circuit board processes, it is ideal for high density interconnect (HDI) designs where passive component placement is difficult or impossible.
