LAMINATING PRECISION PARTS WITH POLYIMIDE FILM FOR INSULATION & SPACING

Laminated Polyimide Parts

Plymouth, MA….When a dielectric is required to maintain accurate finger spacing or for insulation, Tech-Etch can laminate materials such as polyimide. Polyimide can be die-cut and directly bonded in place or full sheet laminated and then photo etched for extremely accurate positioning. Parts can be formed after lamination of insulation. Tech-Etch also photo etches polyimide film into flat parts including non-conductive washers, screens, gaskets, insulation layers and liners, as well as haptics for intraocular lenses used in cataract surgery. For flexible circuits, the coverlay is the insulating layer of polyimide placed over the exposed conductors. It is typically constructed of a pre-cut piece of polyimide film laminated over the conductors using either acrylic or epoxy adhesive. Polyimide’s material characteristics make it ideal for corrosive environments. It also exhibits excellent physical, chemical and electrical properties over a wide temperature range. Tech-Etch offers complete prototype to production facilities for etching extremely intricate parts from polyimide film.

Which Backlight is best for your application?

 

Light Guide: a think filament of a transparent material, such as glass or plastic, which is capable of transmitting

light signals through successive internal reflections. In order for such a fiber to guide light, the proper relationship

between the refractive index of the core and its surrounding cladding must be maintained.

Light Guides are used to distribute light from the source to a particular area that requires illumination and where

overall assembly height needs to be at a minimum.

A light guide uses the mechanism of reflection caused by two materials with a different refractive index. It transports

from one location to another, by using total internal reflection of light at the boundary to the surrounding medium.

 

Advantages:

Design: thinness of the product, fits in tight spaces, efficient

Performance: uniformly lit appearance

Cost: cost savings in energy consumption

 

 

Light Pipe: a conduit made of transparent material, such as glass or plastic, which is capable of channeling light

from one end to the other through successive internal reflections. Such a pipe may be flexible or rigid, and an

optical fiber is an example.

Rigid light pipes are capable of redirecting the LED’s light output to the desired location with minimal loss of

concentration. This makes them ideal if the LED is mounted on an intermediary board behind a font panel.

 

Advantages:

Design: design flexibility, easy to install, efficient

Performance: uniform illumination, low glare, can diffuse or redirect light. Light pipes transmit up to 80% of

emitted light with excellent visual performance.

Cost: low cost

 

4 Things to Consider When Choosing Backlighting Technology:

 

Not all backlighting technology is created equal. You want to consider many factors when choosing you

Backlight and determine which are most important to you overall application design.

 

  1. Brightness Requirements – How bright do you need the light on your application to be? Certain

backlighting options can be brighter than others and some you can control the light output.

  1. Space Requirements – How much space do you have in your application to include a backlight? Length

and width are important, but consider depth as well.

  1. Illumination Area and Uniformity – How large of an area do you want to illuminate and does uniformity

of the light matter?

  1. Cost Requirements – How much are you willing to pay for your backlight?

 PEM Aluminum and Stainless Steel MicroPEM® TackSert® Pins for Compact Electronics
 Aluminum and stainless steel microPEM® TackSert® pins from PennEngineering® provide cost-effective alternatives to micro screws for attaching top panels to base panels or chassis in compact electronic assemblies. They will attach top panels of any material to a base or chassis manufactured from common cast metals (such as magnesium and aluminum) or plastics (such as ABS and printed circuit boards). The pins ultimately eliminate many of the costs and issues associate with screws and integrate unique design features promoting reliable and effective performance.
TackSert® pins offer multiple advantages over screws by eliminating needs for mating threads from tapped holes or inserts and the rework frequently required due to screw cross-threading and driver bit “cam-out”. Patches intended to prevent fastener loosening in service are unnecessary.
Among design features, a tapered tip assists in pin location during the installation process, a specially engineered diagonal broaching knurl (instead of threads) creates a firm interference fit without hole-tolerance issues, and a low-profile head minimized protrusion on the top panel.
The TackSert® fastener family includes TK4™ pins (400 Series stainless steel) fro broaching into castings, brittle materials, printed circuit boards, and plastics and TKA™ aluminum pins for broaching into printed circuit boards and plastics. The fasteners are available in a variety of lengths to accommodate a range of top panel thicknesses. Press-in installation without heat or ultrasonics is achieved simply by preparing properly sized mounting holes in the top sheet and base panel or chassis, placing the pin through the hole in the top sheet and into the through or blind mounting hole of the base panel, and then applying sufficient squeezing force using punch and anvil until the head of the pin contact the top sheet. Pins can even be installed automatically for high volume jobs.

Key Changes

Following are some of the key changes in the 4th edition.
Use environments are split into three areas:
• Professional Healthcare Facility Environment
• Home Healthcare Environment
• Special Environment

Small clinic and Home Use Equipment

  • Need CISPR 11 Class B emission, IEC 61000-3-2 Class A harmonic distortion, and IEC 61000-3-3 voltage fluctuation and flicker.
  • The home use equipment needs 10 V/m, 80 MHz to 1 GHz immunity.

Equipment installed in an aircraft or an ambulance

  • Additional testing per ISO 7137 and CISPR 25 applies.

For an EUT with auto ranging power supply

  • Most tests are required to be performed at one nominal voltage only.
  • Only voltage interruptions need to be performed at maximum and minimum voltage if the rated voltage range is >25% of lowest rated input voltage.

Immunity Test Levels

Immunity test levels increase:
• The range of testing for radiated immunity harmonized up to 2.7GHz (up from 2.5GHz in the 3rd edition)
• Magnetic immunity at 30A/m
• Conducted immunity at 6V in ISM bands
• ESD at 8kV contact and 15kV air (up from 6kV and 8kV in the 3rd edition)
• Voltage dips and interruptions at additional phase angles

In addition to these Immunity changes:
• Immunity levels harmonized with IEC 60601-1-11
• Immunity testing now follows the same port-by-port convention of the IEC 61000-6 series of Generic EMC standards
• Immunity to proximity fields from RF wireless communications equipment is now included, and is based on a minimum separation distance of 30cm
• There is a procedure for continuing to test a product that is damaged by an immunity test signal

And risk management is expanded:

  • Manufacturers will be required to submit a test plan and the risk analysis document before testing
    • Operating modes are based on risk analysis
    • Reasonably foreseeable electromagnetic disturbances (Annex F) shall be taken into account in the risk management process
    • The risk management process is used to determine whether subsystem testing is allowed
    • The minimum separation distance are considered in the risk management process
    • Reduced test levels (e.g. based on the intended use of the product) must be justified in the risk management file

Insul-Fab’s Interface Materials-

With increased miniaturization of electronic components and increased circuit density, today’s electronics generate more heat than ever, and this trend continues at a rapid pace. Typical examples included handheld computing equipment, user interface devices, medical and lighting devices, and power inverters. The basic solution is to transfer heat from the heat source to a frame, chassis, heat sink or other type of heat spreader for diffusion. The important material property is thermal conductivity, which enables heat and energy transfer. But ease of installation and rework are also important considerations.

The Problem-

If heat is not carried away from an electronic device, the reliability and operational lifetime of the component can be significantly reduced. Heat sinks and fans are standard mechanical solutions, but interface materials between the heat source and the heat sink can play a significant role in efficiently removing heat as well. There are several different types of materials than can be used, based upon the application. Thermal greases, glues and adhesives are one set of solutions. However, they can be messy and difficult to apply. Also, they often yield inconsistent results based upon the variability in their application.

The Solution-

Often referred to as Thermal Gap Pads, these flexible sheet products are typically made of silicone based materials with fillers. They vary in thickness and other dimensions in order to be precisely fit between the heat producing device (e.g. the heat source) and the heat dissipation device (e.g. the heat sink) Due to dimensional stability of these solid materials, they can provide a more consistent, measurable solution over their more viscous counterparts. Due to their compressibility, they offer complete surface-to-surface contact.

TE Connectivity introduces Single Wall, Flame Retardant Heat Shrink Tubing-

TE SWFR single wall heat shrink tubing is offered in two very flexible types. X2 is a thin wall tubing, and X4 is a very thin wall tubing. The thicker wall of the X2 offers better protection, while the space-saving thinner wall of the X4 permits denser packing of protected components and a faster shrink time to better protect against thermal damage of temperature-sensitive components.

 

Both types are halogen free, permitting their use in enclosed spaces where toxic gasses from burning materials containing halogens are undesirable. SWFR heat shrink tubing’s high degree of flame retardancy allows it to carry UL VW-1 and CSA OFT flammability ratings.

 

Benefits:

  • High flame-retardant, it is an excellent candidate for applications in appliances, motor vehicles, commercial electronics, and consumer electronics given the increased focus on consumer safety.
  • Environmentally friendly. Emits minimal amounts of toxic or acidic gasses when burned, making it appropriate for use in enclosed areas.
  • Electrically insulates and mechanically protects components and other electrical connections and termination.
  • Low shrink temperatures permits quick installation and reduces the risk of damage to temperature-sensitive components. The X2 thin wall version shrinks quickly, and the X4 very thin wall version can shrink more than twice as fast as the X2.
  • With sizes from 0.8mm to 30mm and two different wall thicknesses, this very flexible tubing is suitable for use in a range of applications.
