ELECTROCHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY IN ELECTRONIC INDUSTRY TODAY AND ITS FUTURE: A REVIEW.

Abstract

Modern electronics includes a broad range of machines such as various size computers with main memory, storage devices, input and output devices, telecommunication equipment, various purpose instruments and more or less sophisticated consumer electronic devices. Electrochemical processes are used today in almost every category of devices, machines and appliances: in the fabrication of conductors, contacts and connections, for mechanical wear-resistance, corrosion protection and decorative purposes. Often the electrochemical approach is the only one which can satisfy the need, gives the desired property or is cost competitive. Examples are given of some applications of electrochemical technology in electronics, of some interesting modifications of the elecrochemical processes to meet the needs of electronic devices and device fabrication. The future of electrochemistry and electrodeposition in electronics is discussed in view of problems experienced and in view of the advantages and the potential electrochemical technology offers by comparison to other technologies.
