It’s time to benefit from 15 years of HDI manufacturing.

The High-Density Interconnect (HDI) market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 12.3% from 2018 to 2023.

  • Use blind vias, buried vias, or microvia techniques
  • Built-up laminations and high-signal performance considerations
  • Laser direct imaging
  • Fine lines and via-in-pad technology
