Interra™ HK04M Embedded Capacitance Laminate
Interra® HK04M embedded capacitance laminate is used between the power and ground planes within a multilayer printed wiring board.
Interra® HK04M provides very low impedance at high frequency, power bus decoupling, and electromagnetic interference reduction. It replaces surface mount by-pass capacitors and their plated-through-holes, which improves the reliability, design flexibility, packaging size and cost of the PWB.
Interra® HK04M is an all-polyimide dielectric laminate that offers the best mechanical properties, reliability and capacitance stability on the market. It can be processed as a thin flexible circuit laminate through the develop/etch/strip process steps. The HK04M dielectric is flexible and can be imaged and etched to remove copper on both sides of the dielectric at the same time.
