High Elastic Modulus, Low CTE Glass Epoxy Multilayer Material

MCL-E-679F(R) ・ GEA-679F(R) <prepreg>

"Type No. MCL-E-679F is high elastic modulus and low CTE materials. (20% lower of CTE compared to conventional FR-4.) And it has the properties for higher elasticity, higher barcol hardness.

The warpage is very low, and it is suitable for the substrates of plastic BGA, memory card, memory module boards, base core material for build-up PWB, and LCD's driver boards."

Features

  • The coefficient of thermal expansion is about 20% (in the X and Y-directions) and about 50% (in the Z-direction) lower than that of our standard FR-4.
  • Elastic modulus is about 30% higher than that of our standard FR-4. Even thin laminate has less warpage and deflection.
  • Superior heat resistance at PCT.
  • The surface roughness is about 1/4 that of our standard FR-4, making fine pattern possible.

Applications

  • Semiconductor packages. (FC-BGA, BGA, CSP)
  • Core material for HDI.
