Embedded Component Technology

The future of electronics is tending towards higher reliability, more functionality and increasing miniaturisation. The efficient use of ever smaller housing volumes and tiny surfaces is gaining in importance. ECT (Embedded Component Technology) serves as a solution for reduced spaces. In an embedding process, active or passive components are positioned in the stack up so that they are completely integrated into its construction. Würth Elektronik distinguishes between two manufacturing processes: ECT Microvia and ECT Flip-Chip.

Advantages:

  • Miniaturisation
  • Function
  • Reliability

Construction and design variations:

  • ECT Microvia
  • ECT Flip-Chip
