PNC Inc. Invests in LED Laser Direct Imaging system from Miva Technologies

Jun 22, 2017 | This 2000L 2LE model is capable of imaging a maximum size 24” x 24” PC board or film size. With any large format film, positional accuracy can be a challenge but the Miva’s dynamic scaling feature can increase accuracy to minimize tolerance build-ups during the imaging process. Due to Miva’s optical registration system, innerlayer drill break-out will be reduced considerably on densely routed signal layers which will significantly improve yields. For sub-20-mil pitch parts or micro BGAs, a 2−3 mil solder dam will be possible to eliminate bridging during the assembly process.
