Sabic SD1100P
Sabic SD1100P
SD1100P high-purity dianhydride powder for polyimide films is for use in 5G flexible circuits, colorless displays and other flexible electronics applications. This 4,4′-bisphenol A dianhydride powder helps produce high molecular weight PI formulations that can improve balance between thermal and mechanical properties. Features lower Dk and Df, reduced water absorption and improved metal adhesion for creating films and varnishes used in copper-clad laminates, coverlays and adhesives.
DownStream CAM350 v. 14.6
DownStream CAM350 v. 14.6
CAM350 v. 14.6 includes enhanced support for flex/rigid-flex and embedded component visualization in 2-D and 3-D environments. Upgrades DfM analysis capability to support rigid-flex and inter-layer analysis. Rigid-flex analysis focuses on flexible conductive layers and coverlayers. Analyzes flexible trace layers for conditions that potentially lead to trace fracture such as vias, trace corners, or solid copper areas in bend areas.
