High Throw DC Acid Copper Formulation for Vertical Continuous Electroplating Processes

Saminda Dharmarathna, PhD, Ivan Li, PhD, Maddux Sy, Eileen Zeng, Bob Wei, William Bowerman, Kesheng Feng, PhD; MacDermid Inc.

The electronics industry has grown immensely over the last few decades owing to the rapid growth of consumer electronics in the modern world. New formulations are essential to fit the needs of manufacturing printed circuit boards and semiconductors. Copper electrolytes for high throwing power applications with high thermal reliability and high throughput are becoming extremely important for manufacturing high aspect ratio circuit boards.

Here we discuss innovative DC copper metallization formulations for hoist lines and VCP (Vertical Continues Plating) applications with high thermal reliability and throughput for high aspect ratio PCB manufacturing
