Molecular Vapour Deposition (MVD) – Is this an alternative to Parylene?MVD 1

MVD belongs to both the families of chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and atomic layer deposition (ALD) methods.
Nexus examined MVD and has asked the important question as to whether it is a possible replacement for Parylene and conformal coatings.



NEW Design for conformal coating SectionConformal Coating Design for Process

There are two types of design that are related to conformal coating.

These are:

Defining both can be critical to the success of the product.

Get the design for reliability wrong and the product may fail in the long term before the expected lifetime is reached.

Fail to design for the conformal coating process correctly, and the product may not even reach the field due to excessive costs.

NEW Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) Coating SectionAtomic Layer Deposition

Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) belongs to the family of chemical vapor deposition methods (CVD). It is a deposition process at a nano-scale level within a vacuum chamber. The deposition process forms ultra-thin films (atomic layers) with extremely reliable film thickness control.

NEW Molecular Vapour Deposition (MVD) Coating Section

MVD belongs to both the families of chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and atomic layer deposition (ALD) methods. Unlike traditional CVD and ALD, the MVD reaction takes place in a chamber under static pressure. This gives it several advantages over the other coatings.
