Modern electronics have become part of our daily lives and the sophisticated electronic circuitry at the heart of these devices and systems must be reliable. Conformal coatings act as a barrier between the electronics and the environment, protecting the areas they cover while strengthening delicate components and traces.
Selecting the right adhesive is a balancing act as engineers attempt to find products that meet conflicting end-use and manufacturability requirements. Medical device engineers also have to contend with a strict regulatory environment, and therefore often have the toughest time striking that balance.
Die attach adhesives serve a vital role in semi-conductor assembly, manufacturing and throughout the product life cycle. In this white paper, learn how they facilitate assembly and about the application process. Read why thin bond lines are so important for product life cycle.
Whereas some optical assembly applications require optical clarity across a certain wavelenth, others require an opaque coating. Optical grade epoxies, silicones and UV curable coatings provide the versatility to adhere well to a wide variety of substrates and the critical performance properties necessary.
As advances in epoxy and silicone materials constantly evolve, manufacturers of advanced electronic systems will find that adhesives offer the ability to meet nearly any combination of requirements for thermal, environmental, and structural stability.
The unique requirements of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) call for specialized materials. Versatile epoxy adhesives are often capable of providing the necessary properties to ensure support and protection from thermal and mechanical shock, vibration, high acceleration, particles, and other physical damage.
