Basic Electronics Contracts with Nordson MARCH for Plasma Treatment of Flex Materials

2004 News

Concord, CA, April 17, 2004 – Nordson MARCH is the supplier of choice for Basic Electronics' out-sourced plasma treatment/etch requirements. Basic Electronics specializes in flex, rigid flex and rigid PCB design and manufacturing, offering a wide variety of unique products, services and contract assembly.

Since flex material is virtually chemically inert, plasma is required for the desmear and etchback process. When asked why Basic Electronics chose Nordson MARCH for their plasma contract requirements, Dan Dove, Director of Engineering, replied, "Nordson MARCH has been in the plasma business for a long time and consistently provides high quality contract services. Rigid flex is the most difficult material to treat as it includes multiple types of material, and Nordson MARCH is the only plasma supplier we have found that delivers the same results, lot after lot."

Basic Electronics holds many certifications, including ISO-9001-2000, MIL-P-50884D, IPC-A-610, IPC-"J" Standard-001, MIL-STD-2000, and MIL-I-45208A, to name a few. Quality, reliability, cost and delivery are crucial to their customers, which range from commercial accounts to companies building high-reliability satellites for communications and military applications. Plasma increases the bond between the adhesive and cover-coated inner layers of flex circuits. The outer surfaces of the polyimide (flex) have a very slick surface, making it difficult to create a good bond without surface preparation. Basic Electronics contracts with Nordson MARCH for several applications, including desmear/etchback and inner layer pre-etch prior to lamination.

Basic Electronics, located in Garden Grove, CA, specializes in flex and rigid flex circuitry, from prototyping to large scale manufacturing, and from design through final assembly and test. For over thirty years, Basic Electronics has designed and fabricated PCBs, flex circuits, bus bars, heat sinks, and EMI shields, offering turnkey solutions, clean room assembly and test/certification capability.
