  • Copper filled vias provide a cost efficient solution to rising costs as the price of gold has risen more than 300% over the last decade.
  • Copper technology offers increased thermal and electrical conductivity over gold.
  • Copper filled vias are the preferred technology available for commercial packaging, hybrid manufacturers, and microelectronics providers in need of a high reliability and high conductivity substrate.
  • Filled vias provide higher conductivity and better thermal conductivity for RF/Microwave than plated through holes, and are preferable for high power applications.
  • Filled vias and plated through holes both provide electrical connections to the ground plane in thin film substrates (also on PWBs/PCBs and thick film). Also, it provides interconnects for thin film substrates with patterns on both sides of the substrates.
