Advances in Parylene Technology For Improving Reliability For Innovative Technology
MetadataShow full item record
The role of polymers in the electronics and medical areas, particularly in miniaturized devices and electronic components, continues to grow rapidly due to increasing demand for more reliable products and advances in other technical fields. As the number of medical devices and electronics are growing to enhance human life, the challenges to make them safe, effective and to find protection solutions for components, which are ever increasing in their complexity and decreasing in their dimension, are also increasing. For a number of years, conformal coatings have offered a level of protection to components, but many simply do not offer the level that is required for today’s, and tomorrow’s, complex technologies. This presentation will provide an overview of recent advances in Parylene technologies, including microRESIST® Antimicrobial Parylene Technology, and will discuss how currently available Parylenes differentiate themselves from other available conformal coating and polymeric materials.This presentation will address the latest advances in adhesion technologies and Parylene's role in nano- and micro- technologies. Examples of applications that have benefited from the properties of Parylene include circuit card assemblies, MEMS, LEDs, sensors, lab-on-a-chip devices, pacemakers, stents, electrosurgical tools, cochlear implants, neurostimulation devices and elastomers. As applications and materials continue to evolve, Parylenes, used as conformal coatings as well as structural, materials, enhance the performance and reliability of critical components and devices.
