Labs Circuits is going to bring a new clean room online in the production process
Never-ending miniaturisation in the electronics sector means that electronic devices must get smaller year on year, and consequently so must their components and designs. Due to this fact, designs require ever more stringent guidelines, requiring smaller tracks and spaces, as well as smaller vias to connect them.
To be able to meet the demanding levels required by this miniaturisation, we have deployed a 150 m2 clean room, ISO 7 certified according to regulation ISO 14644-1, in the production process at Lab Circuits.
The spotlessly clean and controlled atmosphere afforded us by the room, and the advanced automated copper image and solder mask transfer systems which we have set up inside, will allow us to take another step forwards in eliminating the photolith films which were commonplace until now in the manufacture of PCBs. Instead, we can replace them with digital transfer of the image using a laser (Laser Direct Imaging).
