Inc., the leader in the development and application of Voltage Switchable
Dielectric(TM) (VSD(TM)) materials, will showcase its XStatic(TM) ESD solution
for the PWB and package substrate industry at the Nepcon World Japan 2009 Trade
Show and Conference, January 28th-30th. Shocking Technologies will present with
its development partner, Samina-SCI, at booth - West 2-36 at the Tokyo Big Sight
Convention Center, Tokyo, Japan.
Shocking Technologies is also pleased to announce the launch of its Japanese
website. Visitors to the Shocking Technologies website are presented with the
option of viewing the site in the language of their choice - English or Japanese.
Shocking Technologies' XStatic(TM) VSD (voltage switchable dielectric) is
a polymer nano-composite that protects electronic circuitry by switching virtually
instantaneously between dielectric and conductive states. A thin, planar XStatic(TM)
layer is located adjacent to the ground plane in PCB or substrate applications.
At the onset of an ESD event, the XStatic(TM) material temporarily switches
from insulating to conductive state. It clamps voltage to a safe level and shunts
excess current to ground thereby protecting all circuits/components.
When properly designed into a PCB or substrate, Shocking's XStatic(TM) VSD(TM)
material has demonstrated protection levels exceeding 30KV for both contact
and air discharge modes. XStatic(TM) VSD(TM) material not only provides superior
ESD protection levels, but when properly implemented, can protect 100% of the
components on a PCB or the I/Os in a semiconductor package.
Although memory and mobile phones represent the initial applications for VSD(TM)
materials, the technology is applicable to almost any type of electronic product.
