SCHMID Group installed first PlasmaLine comprising ICP etch & sputter deposition of its Korean JV SCHMID AVACO at Hofstetter PCB AG in Switzerland. It is PlasmaLine D-R tool intended for process development and small scale production (up to 20 half-panels per hours for upgraded tool).
PlasmaLine is a series of modular inline plasma systems for touch-free, simultaneous double-sided or single-sided vertical processing of high end HDI+ PCBs and IC substrates with a capacity of up to 4 panels/min. By combining etch and sputtering process modules, the system can be configured flexibly for almost any application.
These advantages make the PlasmaLine to a new state of the art solution for high frequency applications, mSAP, SAP and embedding boards:
- High flexibility of materials which can be processed
- Increased capabilities of high Cu adhesion
- Low roughness
- High energy savings
