1. Via in pad process:
For ordinary PCB boards with small holes and parts to be soldered, the traditional production method is to drill a through hole on the board, and then plate a layer of copper in the through hole to realize the conduction between layers, and then Lead out a wire to connect to a pad to complete the welding with external parts.
Nowadays, circuit boards are becoming more and more high-density and interconnected. There is no more space to place these through-hole wires and pads. Therefore, in this context, the production process of Via in pad has emerged.
Via in pad’s production process makes the circuit board production process three-dimensional, effectively saving horizontal space, and adapting to the development trend of modern circuit boards with high density and interconnection.
2. Traditional resin plugging process
1. ) Definition
The resin plugging process refers to the use of resin to plug the buried holes of the inner layer, and then pressure bonding, which is widely used in high-frequency boards and HDI boards; it is divided into traditional silk screen resin plug holes and vacuum resin plug holes. The general product manufacturing process is traditional silk-screen resin plugging, which is also the most commonly used process method in the industry.

3.) Post-process ceramic grinding plate requirements:
(a.) Grind each board horizontally and vertically to ensure that the resin on the surface of the board is cleaned, and the resin can be repaired by hand polishing if it is partially cleaned;
(b.) The resin depression after grinding the board should not be greater than 0.075mm.
4.) Electroplating requirements:
Electroplating is carried out according to customer’s copper thickness requirements. After electroplating, perform slicing to confirm the recession of the resin plug hole.
3. Vacuum resin plugging process
The vacuum silk screen plugging machine is a special equipment manufactured for the PCB industry. The equipment is suitable for PCB blind hole resin plug holes, small hole resin plug holes, and small hole thick plate resin plug holes. In order to ensure that the resin plug hole is printed without air bubbles, the equipment is designed and manufactured with high vacuum, and the absolute vacuum value of the vacuum chamber is below 50Pa. At the same time, the vacuum system and screen printing machine adopt anti-vibration and high-strength designs to make the equipment run more stable.
2.) The difference
The vacuum plugging process is similar to the traditional screen printing plugging process. The difference is that during the plugging process, the product is in a vacuum state, which can effectively reduce defects such as bubbles.
