BRING PERFORMANCE OF ELECTRONIC PRODUCTS TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Energy and signal losses, limited data transmission rate and heat dissipation (overheating) are common problems with electronics, particularly with ever-increasing data transmission frequencies. Our innovative material solves these problems by reducing the dielectric constant to close to 1.

 

 

We provide lab-to-market services to the manufacturers of high-performance materials, high-frequency/high-density interconnect PCBs for high-performance electronics, 5G telecom and aerospace to satisfy the market demand for increased performance.

PATTERNED MICROCONTAINER AIR-FILM

Printed circuit boards (PCBs) are commonly made of composite materials based on fibreglass and a polymer binder. Despite the low conductivity of PCB, the increasing frequencies of data transmission, such as in 5G telecom, result in significant energy losses, signal loss, limited data transmission rate, and heat dissipation (overheating). This, in turn, leads to financial losses due to increased expenses on infrastructure.

 

We reduce the dielectric constant to close to 1, a natural limit for dielectrics

 

Our innovative material solves these problems by bringing the dielectric constant down to 1.31-1.5.

 

Our air-films are a breakthrough solution for high-frequency/high-density interconnect PCBs for high-frequency telecommunication (5G), data centres, high-performance computing, etc.

 

We make the impossible possible

 

Energy losses significantly impede the development of high-frequency electronics (supercomputers, data centres, 5G telecom) and also make it impossible to design high-frequency consumer electronics.

 

Our air-film pushes the technological limits and enables the production of next-generation ultra-high-frequency and high-performance computing, data processing and telecom systems.

Our patterned microcontainer air-film is a polymer film with patterned microcontainer air bubbles. It’s like bubble wrap only at the micro-level

Our air-film is produced using our cutting-edge is produced using our cutting-edge microcontainer film technology.

 

Our air-film is the world’s first material with a dielectric constant close to 1

 

Due to air saturation, our air-film has almost an ideal dielectric constant (electric permeability), reaching a technological limit for dielectric materials. It reduces the dielectric constant close to 1, nearly the same as the air, making it a NEW super-structural material.

 

  • We bring the dielectric constant down to 1.31-1.5
  • We bring dielectric loss down to 0.0006

 

Our air-film provides significant cost reduction

 

Due to air saturation of up to 80%, less polymers are required resulting in cost savings.

 

Our micropatterned air-PI can be super rigid or flexible

 

By varying the production technology, our air-film can be made as rigid as steel or flexible (for wearable electronics).

 

Our air-film can be made from a wide range of polymers

 

Our air-film can be produced from a wide range of polymers (PI, PEI, PEEK, etc.), enabling customisation with respect to dielectric properties, mechanical strength, thermal, chemical, and environmental resistance, and production costs.

 

Our air-film can sustain high temperatures, pressure and mechanical loads

 

Our air-film can sustain temperatures of +220 – +370°С and pressures required for PCB manufacturing, and it inherits the mechanical strength of polyimides.

 

Flexible shape, size and thickness

 

Microcontainers’ shape, size and film thickness are adjustable to meet the required properties, such as stability, structural strength, etc
