Understanding Pulsed-Light Photonic Curing
What is pulsed-light photonic curing?
Why Does This Matter?
- As compared to traditional thermal processing equipment, e.g. ovens, photonic curing tools have a tiny footprint.
- Equipment can be retrofitted onto existing lines or simply take up less space in a clean room for the same processing rate.
- Since higher processing temperatures can be achieved, improved conductive performance can be achieved with functional materials.
- Inexpensive or thinner substrates can be substituted for more traditional ones.
What are the Applications of Pulsed-Light Photonic Curing?
The maturing complexity of modern printed electronics for customer applications demands high throughput manufacturing and improved device function. The functionality of the printed electronics is critically important as customers demand more out of each device. In that order, multiple layers are designed into each device, requiring ever more versatile processing techniques.
