Heavy Copper PCBs are widely used in applications where high current carrying capacity, improved thermal management, and enhanced reliability are essential. To ensure the optimum PCB performance, material selection is critical.
PICA offers heavy copper up to 12 ounces in volume production. We offer expert guidance for material selection for optimum PCB performance. We offer Pattern Plating to increase the copper thickness to base copper levels, including IGBT, IL, and MCPCB with 1.0.3 copper substrate and a 1-9 oz copper foil.
At PICA we use these parameters to select the right materials: High -Tg, CTE matching, proper lamination processes, via-hole drill and plating, solder mask, pattern plating, substrate and foil considerations and of course strict process and quality controls.
By working closely with our customers’ engineers and designers we can advise them on the best and most manufacturable designs to achieve the required heavy copper thickness PCBs.
