Laser Drilling Systems


 Geode_CEO2_Via_DrillingLaser via drilling system for flex PCB processing 

MKS-ESI’s Geode™ is a laser-based micro-via drilling system for high-density interconnects (HDI) on rigid printed circuit boards (PCB). The Geode™ combines a CO2 laser and advanced beam control capabilities to deliver greatest throughput and accuracy from a system that is significantly smaller and lighter than current competitive offerings. The system’s sophisticated beam steering and pulse shaping technologies provide the flexibility and control that will be required for 5G applications using high-frequency compatible materials and finer-pitched interconnects fabricated with modified semi-additive processes (mSAP).

The Geode™ system uses a powerful 9.4µm pulsed CO2 laser, emitting infrared radiation ideally-suited for rigid PCB materials. Its HyperSonix™ technology shapes laser pulses to improve throughput and via quality. AcceleDrill™ distributes pulse energy to improve throughput and via metrics and also permits multiple via sizes in a single pass. VDC (via density compensation) controls local heating to minimize heat-affected zones and improve accuracy, throughput and diameter stability. The Geode™ system is the first CO2 laser via drilling system to incorporate such high level beam control and beam steering technologies.
