Posted by Sean Horn on Tue, Oct 9, 2012

Silicone conformal coating is quickly becoming a very popular choice for conformal coating.  Many people are asking for silicone coating because of its excellent moisture resistance, quick drying nature, and high temperature capabilities.  It is also one of the easiest conformal coatings to work with.  In order for the coating to function at its optimum […]

Parylene and MEMS Technology

Posted by Sean Horn on Mon, Jun 18, 2012

In the past decade, the use of Parylene as a structural material in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) devices has attracted significant attention.  Parylene C, known for its biocompatibility, is widely used in implantable medical devices.  Parylene C is also compatible with MEMS microfabrication processes. WHAT ARE MEMS? Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) is the technology of very small [
