What are the main uses of Molecular vapor deposition (MVD) in protecting components?

Molecular vapor deposition (MVD) is a combined Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) and Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD) process that was developed to improve the protective performance properties of the individual ALD and CVD processes.

The MVD process provides protective thin films to many industries including:

  • MEMS (Microelectromechanical systems)
  • Semiconductors
  • Industrial Inkjet Heads
  • Display Technology
  • Advanced Packaging
  • Data Storage Industry
  • Biomedical
  • Genome Sequencing
  • µfluidics

How is the MVD coating process used in different industries?

The MVD process provides low temperature vapor deposition of coatings with many different properties in many sectors.

Consider the examples below where an MVD coating has been used to provide the appropriate film properties:

Surface Energy Control

  • Anti-stiction
  • Hydrophobic
  • Hydrophilic
  • Oleophobic
  • Oleophilic
  • Lubrication
  • Bio-functional layer

Device Protection / Package Sealing

  • Moisture barrier
  • Corrosion barrier
  • Chemical barrier
  • Gas/Oxygen barrier

Optical Films

  • Anti-reflection coatings

 Dielectric Films

  • Electrical insulation
  • Conformal films on high A/R

Adhesion

  • Adhesion promotion
  • Improved thermal stability
  • Improved mechanical durability

The MVD process offers great flexibility of processing thin films and it has now been considered for electronics protection.

Three key reasons to use a Molecular Vapor Deposition (MVD) process to protect a circuit board instead of conformal coatings

MVD

Molecular Vapour Deposition (MVD) is a new process introduced to the electronics coating market.

MVD is a hybrid coating technique using ALD (Atomic Layer Deposition) and CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition) coating processes in combination.

The method uses multiple layers of ultra-thin coatings with differing properties to build a completely protective coating with a final hydrophobic Nano coating as a top layer.
