The complete line of final finishes
for today’s and future market needs
The most HDI orientated ENIG process
Minimized nickel corrosion
A chemically balanced gold bath to optimize the efficiency of the nickel / gold exchange mechanism
Soldermask and exotic material compatible
Eradication of discoloration associated with critical soldermasks and base materials in the field
The Aurotech® AU Plus has excellent distribution relieving the necessity for overplating
Aurotech® Plus is an updated electroless nickel immersion gold process to fulfill current requirements.
It combines the latest developments in electroless nickel and immersion gold by Atotech. The process is suited to cope with exotic materials and maximize soldermask attack compatibility by employing Aurotech® NIC nickel and has been engineered to ensure minimum nickel corrosion. Semi plugged vias associated with SMT processing can be processed with the Aurotech® Plus process without the risk of ‘reddish discoloration’.
- High-end HDI substrates
- Ideally suited for mobile applications
- Exotic material compatibility
- Meeting and surpassing the minimum expectation for ENIG in the HDI world
- 4 MTO for the electroless nickel bath at 5g/l nickel
- Proven Al wire capabilities with specialized gold wire bonding potential
- SIT compatible for SIT production
Why we developed Aurotech® Plus
To achieve repeatedly good solderability and bondability at an acceptable price. Traditional ENIG related problems such as black pad and discoloration should be avoided.
Aurotech® Plus is a combination of an optimized nickel process to maximize lifetime whilst being compatible to the functional substrates available in the modern environment, and an immersion gold that exhibits virtually no nickel corrosion without peeling or discoloration.
