Your designs, your thought processes, and pretty much anything to do with your business, needs to be current. This is the only way to stay relevant, and be able to sell anything. We help our clients embrace new technologies and improve their overall business efficiency.
When fabricating your PCBs, several decisions are made regarding the materials and technologies used. One of the most important decisions is choosing the right surface finish. We provide some of the best surface finishes for PCBs. Every finish material has its pros and cons. We provide our clients finish options that complement the functionality and environment of the application. The surface finish should be chosen in a way that improves product performance.
This is the most commonly used surface finish. It is popular because it doesn’t tarnish, is long-lasting, and reliable. In this process, the board is first coated with nickel and then a thin layer of gold is applied. The gold protects the nickel from corroding. Although this is a lead-free option, it is not as economical as immersion silver. It could also pose problems during the soldering process.
Surface Thickness: 78 – 80 micro inches (75 micro inches of nickel and 3-5 micro inches of gold).
The following options for the gold layer are available:
Gold Flash: 5 – 15 micro inches
Full Body Gold: 30 – 60 micro inches
Selective Gold: 30 – 50 micro inches
Bondable Gold: 30 – 80 micro inches
Shelf Life: 12+ Months
