  • MoCu and WCu alloys for MM-wave packaging


Pseudo alloys of the systems Mo-Cu and W-Cu includes the required physical properties concerning thermal expansion, thermal conductivity and mechanical capacitance. However, these materials cannot be produced by common metallurgical processes that only powder metallurgy comes into question. Moreover, compared with shaping by machine tool with removal of ships metal injection moulding technique as primary shaping method offers the advantage of a nearly free shaping of geometry with very low material waste. Compared with machining this renders considerable savings of costs at producing of millimeter-wave packagings possible.
