Etchable Thick Film Allows Ultra-Fine Circuit Lines

Remtec has commercialized etchable gold thick film process for High Definition Thick Film (HDTF) circuitry as a low-cost alternative to thin films.  The offering reportedly represents a significant advancement in miniaturization, circuit density and performance. The etchable gold substrates allow the use of ultra-fine lines with a standard line / spacing resolution of 50/50 µm (.002”) and premium circuit of 25/25 µm (.001”).


In addition to an etchable gold circuit, the company’s HDTF can incorporate conductor multilayers. It also integrates built-in components such as Lang couplers, inductors, filters and high precision resistors in a wide range from 50 mΩ to 1 MΩ laser trimmed to ±1% on the same ceramic base.
