A Korean company, established in 1996, has been a world class supplier of probe card solutions for memory and system LSI (Large Scale Integrated) applications. Since 2009, the company has been providing metalized ceramic substrates for electronics to its customers. It also has repair centers in Korea, China, and Taiwan
With long and professional experience in semiconductor testing market, the company has devoted to developing high efficient magnetron sources based on the plasma diagnostics and synthesis of functional thin films.
This newly developed sputtered thick coating(STC) technology can be applied not only to ceramic, metal and polymer substrates but also to various industries. With its advantages, the company expects to grow their market shares all over the world since it has been proved that the demand for ceramic & metal PCB substrates is increasing due to a growing market for LED BLU, high brightness/high power LEDs and high power modules.
The key technology of sputtering technology is performing a thick coating on ceramic, metal and polymer substrates using the high rate and efficiency magnetron sputtering. Here, “sputtering” is a vacuum process used to deposit thin/thick films on substrates It is performed by applying a high voltage across a low-pressure gas to create a "plasma“, which consists of electrons and gas ions in a high energy state. During sputtering, energized plasma ions strike a "target", composed of the desired coating material, and cause atoms from that target to be ejected with enough energy to travel to, and bond with, the substrate.
The company is closely working with major electronics companies in Korea for now and is seeking more opportunities to collaborate with other potential client companies around the world. Any companies who are interested in ordering their products to be coated or metalized by this Korean company would be welcomed. Commercial agreement or manufacturing agreement can be mutually made or the company is open to other kinds of suggestions in collaboration.
