Kayaku Advanced Materials (KAM), a leading specialty materials provider bringing innovative materials to the microelectronics market, has completed the acquisition of SignalSeal from GVD Corporation. The investment in SignalSeal provides a significant compliment to KAM’s existing Paratronix® parylene conformal coatings division.
Join us for the Webinar "High-Performance Conformal Coatings Evolve for RF Circuits" presented by Dr. W. Shannan O’Shaughnessy as part of Microwave Journal's Technical Education Webinar Series, November 9, 2021 at 8am PT / 11am ET.
It can be challenging for RF systems to meet the size, weight, power and cost requirements (also known as “SWaP-C") set by consumer market or defense agency demand using traditional hermetic or coating solutions. SignalSeal offers an ultra-thin, low-k environmental protection solution to rival the conventional approaches.
Find out more about a new breed of conformal coating that allows for common and efficient mass assembly processes, military-grade ruggedness, and minimal impact on RF and high-speed digital performance.
Recognizing the need, GVD responded to an SBIR to innovate a coating solution that is able to reduce the force required to move the rubber stopper through the syringe as well or better than silicone oil, without the risk of affecting the solution inside.
There are two main standards commonly used to initially determine if a conformal coating may be suited to harsh military and industrial applications, IPC-CC-830C and MIL-I-46058C. The main goal of these standards is to impart confidence in the users that the coatings will have a consistent quality, physical characteristics, and protection capability needed for modern electronics.
