A substrate niche

There are a number of allied technologies that go into the manufacture of advanced microchip components that are integral parts of gadgets and applications that are in everyday use. These technologies contribute to the sophistication of the gadgets in no simple way.

CW Microtech is a technology leader in the niche segment of design and fabrication of substrates that form part of the chips that go into laptops, cell phones, TVs, and so on. The company has its headquarters in Martinsville, Virginia and caters to the needs of a wide spectrum of industries. These advanced thick film and thin film substrates are the backbone of the microchips that are carried by them.

Dhirendra, President of CW Microtech, has utilized his in-depth hands on experience in the substrate and high volume assembly to transform the company into a full service contract manufacturer of ceramic substrates and hybrid assembly. Now CW Microtech stands out in the crowd as it is the leading company, according to him, that has the capability to provide end-to-end services, all carried out under one roof.

After the dicing of microchips (or ICs) from a wafer, these are sequentially assembled on a carrier, which hold them in to be connected to other components or outside world. The carrier is normally either made of organic or inorganic substrate. CW Microtech has in-house capability to manufacture inorganic substrate, which are made of Alumina, Alumina Nitride, Beryllium Oxide, etc. The substrates have the required thermal and electrical properties for high end application. The substrate also carries capacitors, resistors, diodes, and other intricate electronic components that connect to other chips to form a working device. Complicated technological processes are involved in the design and manufacture of these ceramic substrates that have chips and passive components mounted on them.
