|Precision Coating and Adhesive Dispensing for Medical Devices|
|Keywords: Conformal Coating, Medical Adhesive, High Precision|
|The human body is the one of the harshest and most complex environments known for microelectronic assemblies . Medical device assemblies are decreasing in size to provide access and comfort for extracorporeal and in situ devices. In addition the scale of electronic components has consistently grown smaller and denser with the advances and improvements in technology . Packaging of medical devices is requiring a much higher level of precision than ever before, whether it is a conformal coating for environmental protection or dispensing on to various medical adhesives. Jetting conformal coating as well as semiconductor packaging fluids represents a paradigm shift to a higher level of precision in the method of applying coatings and adhesives versus traditional dispensing methods. This paper will cover the advancements in manufacturing methods for high precision environmental coating and adhesive dispensing.|
