3M Introduces New 19-Micron Embedded Capacitance Material

The new 19-micron 3M Embedded Capacitance Material (ECM), introduced by 3M Electronic Solutions Division, offers printed circuit board manufacturers a high-performing choice for cost-sensitive applications.

3M ECM is a thin, high-performance embedded capacitor laminate for printed circuit boards. The material helps reduce impedance, power bus noise, EMI and discrete capacitor count. The material is designed for OEMs with high-speed digital and low-pass filter designs and who seek to differentiate their products through dramatically improved performance and reduced size.

The new 19-micron thickness is suited for cost-sensitive equipment, such as handheld electronics, where functionality and size constraints drive design.

The material’s high capacitive density allows it to perform the power supply decoupling function so that the number of discrete capacitors may be reduced, increasing useable board space and allowing for board size reduction.

3M ECM is compatible with most rigid and flex printed circuit board processing, including laser drilling. Fabricators and OEMs worldwide may use 3M ECM without a purchasing license from 3M. The material is RoHS compliant*.
