    AdTech Ceramics Introduces Copper Thick Film Metallization

    AdTech Ceramics, a leading manufacturer of high temperature co-fire ceramic (HTCC) electronic packages, announces the addition of a copper thick film (CuTF) product line to complement its established multilayer product offerings. Possessing a uniquely impressive combination of high thermal conductivity and high electrical conductivity, copper films fired onto multilayer ceramic substrates open up the possibilities for designers who are challenged with heat removal, miniaturization of devices and cost. AdTech's standard ceramic offerings include aluminum oxide (Al2O3) and aluminum nitride (AlN). When high heat transfer is desired, aluminum nitride is preferred with thermal conductivity approximately 8 times that of alumina. Another benefit of CuTF is the precision of metal features. Since the copper is screened onto the ceramic surface, width and spacing of patterns can be significantly smaller when compared to the direct bond copper (DBC) process. AdTech also offers numerous plating options including; electroless and electrolytic Ni and Au and ENEPIG plating...

    Ceramic packaging continues to evolve and maintain pace with advancing microelectronics technology, and remains the standard for many applications. High Temperature Co-fired Ceramics (HTCC) are an enabling subset of these technologies, established in the 1960s to provide hermetic, compact, reliable interconnect solutions. Microelectronics are now integrated in nearly every aspect of society, and the performance expectations have intensified. HTCC manufacturing technologies have maintained pace to provide enabling, cost effective solutions for leading-edge technologies including LEDs, power electronics, piezo and optoelectronics, medical advancements, photonics and sensors. Multilayer ceramics continue to be selected to meet miniaturization, heat removal, RF shielding, microwave performance, mechanical stability, high temperature, hermetic, premium reliability standards and cost requirements for emerging technologies.
