Mycronic AB, launches a new display mask writer and continues to improve performance. At Photomask Japan on 6 April, Mycronic introduces the new mask writer that defines a new resolution standard for top critical display photomasks.
Mycronic’s new mask writer Prexision-800 (P-800) has substantial improvements in optical resolution and enables more than 25 percent denser pattern designs than previously possible. The new mask writer will ensure efficient production of future display photomasks for 4K smartphone displays and advanced AMOLED displays when used with the new 1.5 micron aligner generation used for display manufacturing up to generation 6 (G6). The P-800 becomes the most advanced mask writer.
The P-800 is based on Mycronic’s Prexision platform and provides a number of new technical features and improvements for higher performance and resolution. At the same time productivity is maintained at a high level. These features create a cost effective production of next generation top critical photomasks.
“The trend towards higher resolution displays has accelerated the last couple of years. At the same time the display technology has become more advanced. This means that pattern complexity within each display pixel has increased. This trend will continue to evolve and a new mask writer with higher resolution is required,” says Magnus Råberg, Sr VP and General Manager PG of Mycronic AB and adds: “The new capabilities offered by the P-800 translate into cost effective production of the coming most demanding photomasks at the mask makers. At the same time the display manufacturers enjoy higher yield and possibility to develop new innovative display products.”

Panasonic’s Darren Hitchcock spoke with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team on the complexities of moving toward ultra HDI manufacturing. As we learn in this conversation, the number of shifting constraints relative to traditional PCB fabrication is quite large and can sometimes conflict with each other.
In my last column, I discussed cutting-edge innovations in printed circuit board technology, focusing on innovative trends in ultra HDI, embedded passives and components, green PCBs, and advanced substrate materials. This month, I’m following up with the products these new PCB technologies are destined for. Why do we need all these new technologies?

Intel announced one of the industry’s first glass substrates for next-generation advanced packaging, planned for the latter part of this decade.
I have been in and around circuit boards most of my life. I started 20 years ago in my family’s PCB shop, leaving after a couple of years to start my own software company. About a year ago, I returned to the family business, and the first thing I noticed was that nothing had really changed. We were doing the same things in the same way as the day I left. After talking to several experts in the industry, I realized it was worse than that: The manufacturing of PCBs had not changed in 70 years.
