Copper oxide removal
Copper is apt to be oxidized during the IC assembly process. Higher oxide content will increase the electrical resistance and is detrimental to reliability of IC.
E&R’s plasma system can completely reduce the copper oxide at the low temperature in order to prevent the unwanted warpage of the adjacent polymer sheet, e.g. embedded FPCB sheet, 600x600mm.
