Technic Inc.'s Goldeneye barrier layer system is engineered for improved corrosion resistance in high-speed, reel-to-reel connector applications. The product is a newly developed universal metal stack, designed to enhance functionality of subsequent precious metal deposits. The system enables the deposition of application specific options from a universal base electrolyte through the use of specifically designed additives.
Metal stack options include: 1. Goldeneye Nickel, a low-stress, highly corrosion-resistant nickel plating process capable of operating at high current densities from a proprietary electrolyte; 2. Goldeneye Nickel ORC, which protects over-plated bright tin from discoloration during thermal exposure (e.g., reflow); 3. Goldeneye Level Nickel, which enables deposition of a leveled, fully bright nickel deposit at high current densities and also enhances seposit properties, such as hardness and corrosion resistance.
Technic says this technology enables significant advancement in precious metal reduction goals for high reliability applications.
