Engineered Material Systems, Inc., a leading global supplier of negative photo resist materials for MEMS and IC cooling applications, is pleased to introduce the DF-3005 Dry Film Negative Photo Resist for use in micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and wafer level packaging applications (TSV sealing). This material formulation has been optimized for hot roll lamination and processing on MEMS and IC wafers.
DF-3005 is available in other thickness formats from 5-50 µm, ±5 percent. The cured chemistry can withstand harsh environments including resistance to extreme moisture conditions and corrosive chemicals. The DF-3005 film is tougher (less brittle) than most negative photo resists on the market with a glass transition temperature of 158°C (By DMA Tan Delta) and a moderate modulus of 3.5 GPa at 25°C. It is hydrophobic in nature providing for chemical and moisture resistance. DF-3005 is compatible with and can be used in contact with the EMS line of spin coatable photoresists.
DF-3005 is the latest addition to Engineered Materials Systems’ full line of film and liquid negative photo resists formulated for making microfluidic channels on MEMS devices and integrated circuits.

Barry Matties and Nolan Johnson speak with Joe O’Neil, CEO of Green Circuits, about something that seems to be on everyone’s minds—the rising cost of, well, everything. Joe’s background in marketing and finance, as well as his leadership at Green Circuits, positions him as an expert on managing costs related to labor, facilities, lead times, employee training, and the future of the industry. But what rising costs actually surprised him? This is a must-read for us all.

When making the decision to purchase materials, there is a strong benefit from a trust in the supplier. When materials are in short supply, however, there is no time to establish trust with a new supplier, especially when it’s the only one that can fulfill a requirement. While the manufacturing world is seeking methods to find trust with previously unknown suppliers, there are also those who are getting cleverer at disguising their often-nefarious activities—ones that could bring catastrophic results. In the real world, how can supply chain trust be established and maintained, or is it safer to assume that everyone is out to get us?

The sixth episode, “Materials Testing—Process Materials,” can be viewed in under four minutes. Presenters share information on paste vs. flux vs. rework, limitations of standards, hand soldering/rework cautions, and more. Designed to complement GEN3’s book, The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to...Process Validation, this entire webinar series can be viewed in about an hour and covers a comprehensive range of topics surrounding the four groundbreaking test standards published between 2019 and 2021 that set the scene for Objective Evidence and its widespread influence throughout the world of electronics, whether in the high reliability arena of space, medical, automotive, or general industrial applications.
