Parylene for Military Sensors

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Jan 17, 2020 @ 08:00 AM

Today, security systems rely on different types of advanced, intelligent and connected sensor technologies. Application areas are diverse: radar systems, vision, night vision (IR-cameras), acceleration- orientation-location detection (accelerometers, gyroscopes, GPS), chemicals (neural toxins, other toxic gasses, liquids, materials), wearable sensors (body temperature, relative humidity, location detection), barometric (under water), air flow (aerospace, missiles) and they are brought together for multifunctionality on PCB’s which carry many sensor at a time. Sensors used in military applications pose stringent requirements such as robustness under severe environmental conditions and require longevity of sensing functions. Some of the environmental conditions that are harsh on sensors can be listed as:

Aerospace Conformal Coatings

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Feb 09, 2018 @ 08:05 AM

Conformal coatings composed of acrylic, silicone and parylene polymer materials are valuable for a wide range of aerospace applications, which can push technologies to their limits. Applied to printed circuit boards (PCBs) and related electrical assemblies, conformal coatings maintain device performance through difficult operational conditions. The presence of atmospheric variation, chemicals, humidity, mobile ion permeation, moisture, temperature fluctuation, or excessive vibration can generate:

4 Aerospace Applications of Parylene

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Nov 03, 2017 @ 07:49 AM

Superior to liquid coatings like acrylic, epoxy, silicone and urethane, parylene conformal films offer unparalleled protection for aerospace printed circuit boards (PCBs) and related electronic assemblies. Their complete encapsulation conforms entirely to all device surfaces – flat, round, creviced or edged, while adding almost no weight to the covered device.
