QUB Workshops
21 Mar 2018



The electronics workshop is able to process high frequency PCB-based substrates from suppliers such as Taconic and Rodgers, and provide through-hole plating of small vias for double-sided boards.

​It has also developed a number of proprietary processes that can be used to improve the resolution of the printed element shapes which are applicable for the manufacture of space hardware. The workshop has a large state-of-the-art range of equipment for patterning microwave substrates with photo-resist, depending upon the accuracy needed, such as spin-coating, dip-coating or dry-film lamination. With these methods it is possible to obtain double-sided coatings and PCB sizes from 300mm to 500mm square.​​
