Polymeric Film Technology for the Jettable Fluid Delivery Assembly and Harsh Environment Protection
Abstract:Jettable fluid delivery and other microelectro mechanical (MEM) devices are becoming smaller in addition to being exposed to more extreme environments. These devices or packages rely on polymeric materials as structural adhesives for the assembly of various substrates. These polymer materials also provide protection from mechanical shock, extreme thermal cycles, and can withstand long exposure to the harsh chemical environment of the jetting fluids. Because these devices are becoming smaller, it is more difficult to accurately apply the structural adhesives. This poster will discuss an alternative adhesive format which is a very precise thickness film. These films are versatile and are designed with many physical and property options such as: supported or unsupported, thermally and/or electrically conductive, dielectric, low temperature attach and low voiding. In addition, the paper will describe the various film formats, film attach techniques and the part assembly processes.

For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
