CAPLINQ supports Shin-Etsu Premolded Leadframe Line for LED packages

Recent­ly, Shin-Etsu launched a new line of prod­ucts code­named “Tiger LF”. These “Tiger” lead­frames are Shin-Etsu’s answer to the LED and solar mar­ket to replace the indus­try’s con­ven­tion­al PPA plas­tic hous­ing with a pre­mold­ed lead­frame using Shin-Etsu’s patent­ed Sil­i­cone Mold­ing Com­pound — its SWC-Series products.

CAPLINQ is proud to sup­port Shin-Etsu in this high­ly spe­cilized prod­uct line which uses tra­di­tion­al semi­con­duc­tor indus­try trans­fer mold equip­ment to pre­mold SWC grade sil­i­cone onto pre­plat­ed lead­frames (PPF). These pre­mold­ed, pre­plat­ed “Tiger” lead­frames aim to com­plete­ly replace the indus­try’s cur­rent PPA pre­mold­ed pack­age or sub­strate with a supe­ri­or, cost-effec­tive solu­tion that can with­stand high tem­per­a­ture and long-term UV expo­sure for LED and solar cell manufacturers.

Start­ing in 2010, Shin-Etsu plan to ful­ly com­mer­cial­ize and sell these turn-key pre­mold­ed lead­frames that can with­stand the much tougher require­ments of high pow­er LED appli­ca­tions and solar cell pack­ages. Typ­i­cal­ly, ceram­ic pack­ages have been con­sid­ered as the only viable alter­na­tive to the indus­try stan­dard PPA pre­mold­ed plas­tic hous­ings to with­stand high­er tem­per­a­ture and UV conditions.
