RBP Chemical Technology Announces the Release of ONYX™ Direct Metallization System for PCBs


Reading time ( words)

RBP’s ONYX™ is a Direct Metallization System for high reliability and complex printed circuit boards.

The RBP ONYX™ Direct Metallization Process is an integrated system based on a highly conductive form of finely dispersed graphite. Extensively tested and validated, the ONYX™ Process has proven to be versatile and cost effective. Currently the customer base using ONYX™ processes flex, rigid-flex, HDI and high aspect ratio multilayer printed circuit boards with ease and cost effectiveness when compared to conventional electroless copper. The ONYX™ process easily surpasses industry reliability standards including IST (interconnection stress test) and ATC (accelerated thermal cycling).

ONYX™ Direct Metallization System Highlights

The ONYX™ Direct Metallization System is a versatile process and is used in horizontal conveyorized equipment or in vertical immersion mode. Fabricators are able to process a vast array of resin materials including PTFE, polyimide, BT, flex, and basically all epoxy-based resin systems on the market today.

This process is an alternative to electroless copper deposition and provides several significant benefits to the fabricator:

  • Less expensive than conventional electroless copper
  • Smaller equipment footprint compared to electroless copper
  • Greatly reduced water consumption, 4−6 gallons/minute, compared to conventional electroless copper, 26−30 gallons per minute
  • ONYX™ contains no chelator as opposed to electroless coppersimplifying waste treatment

Steve Williams and Anaya Vardya, president and CEO of American Standard Circuits (ASC), discuss the upcoming virtual SMTAI show and how the company is “making lemonade out of lemons.” As they point out, there may be no face-to-face interaction, but virtual shows are open to attendees from around the world with no travel or hotel costs. Anaya explains how the COVID-19 lockdown has caused ASC to become more creative in its marketing efforts, including holding webinars and publishing two eBooks with I-Connect007. They also discuss ASC’s holistic approach to the marketplace, with a diversified product mix across various segments.

An Excerpt From the Book ‘Thermal Management: A Fabricator’s Perspective’

09/07/2020 | Anaya Vardya, American Standard Circuits
Thermal management in the printed circuit board (PCB) world is big business! A recent Markets and Markets report projects the thermal management market to reach $16 billion by the year 2024 with an average CAGR of 8% over that period. We have chosen to focus this book on providing designers a thermal management desk reference on the most current thermal management techniques and methods from a PCB fabrication perspective, including a case study on an extreme mixed-technology design that we recently produced. We hope you find value in our efforts.
