Minco, Minneapolis, has become fully HDI-capable for flexible circuits. The company has invested in the equipment and personnel necessary to provide high density interconnect flexible circuits with blind and buried microvia capability down to 75 µm, and trace and space capabilities down to 50 µm. Minco is certified ISO 9001:2000 and AS9100B.

HDI flex circuits lower cost by reducing layer count and circuit size. Increased circuit density can eliminate extra layers and save up to 40 percent of the size and weight of non-HDI designs, says the company.

Minco's HDI brochure can be downloaded or ordered in print, as can a 20-page test report titled "Multilayer High Density Interconnect Circuits: High Reliability Microvias." Go to www.minco.com or call (763) 571-3121.
