Wilmington, MA (PRWEB) November 18, 2011
Leading micro component maker Metrigraphics LLC has developed a technology that meets the growing need to miniaturize medical devices yet circumvents the micro interconnect problems that plague existing solutions.
The Massachusetts-based technology leader released details about its capabilities at the recent Medical Design & Manufacturing exhibition in Minneapolis.
Metrigraphics cited the need to connect bio device components at sub-miniature levels for a variety of bio-compatibility applications, including:
- Subcutaneous use
- Single-use, removable in-body devices
- Short-term and long-term implants
The company’s ERMF™ technology is based on a combination of three of Metrigraphics’ core strengths:
- Hi-resolution photolithography
- Thin film metal deposition
- Patterned Electroplating
Using ERMF™, Metrigraphics can achieve design parameters such as a minimum trace and space width of less than 0.005 mm, a recommended aspect ratio of less than two, and a current maximum of six conductive layers to design and build medical microcircuits with extremely fine features.
Metrigraphics is a leader in photolithography, thin film processing, and precision electroforming. Click here to view Metrigraphics’ full MD&M presentation. Or learn more about their ERMF™ capabilities by visiting their website.
