Reading time ( words)

George Hsin, chief strategy officer of Taiwan Union Technology Corporation (TUC) is pleased to announce that TUC broke ground for a new Advanced Technology Center adjacent to the current headquarters and manufacturing site in Hsinchu, Taiwan. TUC plans an investment of NT$1.6 billion (US$ 53.3 million) for 24,500 square meter facility for R & D as well as state of the art manufacturing. The 5th of December 2017 ceremony was attended by state and local government officials as well as the management team of TUC.

TUC plans to produce base materials for microwave, antennae, radio frequency as well as IC substrates. The added capacity is expected to produce roughly 200,000 sheets (2.5 million square feet) of copper-clad laminates per month.

TUC has just completed their new analytical laboratory complex with an investment of NT$15 million (US$500,000). The temperature- and humidity-controlled cleanrooms have been completed which include state-of-the-art test equipment. Some of the new instruments include equipment for testing up to 67 GHz for Dk and Df, a 500 volt CAF analyzer with 400 channels, DSC/TGA/DMA thermal analysis apparatus, rheometers, electronic microscopes with X-ray fluorescence, gas and liquid chromatography units, infrared analysis and microsection equipment.

The material toolbox idea first came up when I saw the IPC appendix list for standard 1-ply stack-ups. The idea is to make a very simple bill of materials, specifications and notes, and possibly use the same prepreg/resin in the laminate and in the core.
