Printed Circuit Design & Fab magazine recognizes the ESI Geode system's innovation as 'Best New Product' for HDI PCB manufacturing and IC packaging

MKS Instruments, Inc. (NASDAQ: MKSI), a global provider of technologies that enable advanced processes and improve productivity, today announced that its recently launched ESI Geode system for HDI PCB manufacturing has been awarded Printed Circuit Design & Fab magazine's 'Best New Product' for Via Drilling Equipment introduced over the past 12 months. The Geode system was selected by an independent panel of practicing industry engineers. Their selection was based on a broad group of criteria, which included such factors as design, performance, creativity and innovation, and speed/throughput.

'We are pleased to see that the innovations delivered in the ESI Geode system are being recognized by the industry', said John Williams, Vice President of Marketing, ESI Products. 'The system leverages our decades of experience in laser optics and laser-material interaction. With its high-powered CO2 laser and higher throughput in a smaller, lighter package, Geode delivers the placement accuracy and dimensional control required by PCB manufacturers-especially those working with high-frequency, impedance-sensitive 5G designs.'

The Geode system uses a powerful 9.4-micros pulsed CO2 laser, emitting infrared radiation ideally suited for rigid PCB materials, and is the first CO2 laser via drilling system to incorporate advanced beam control and beam steering technologies. The proprietary ESI HyperSonix technology shapes laser pulses to improve throughput and via quality. AcceleDrill distributes pulse energy to improve throughput and via metrics while also permitting multiple via sizes in a single recipe. VDI (via density compensation) controls local heating to minimize heat affected zones and improve accuracy, throughput and diameter stability. The absence of moving parts in the optical system further enhances accuracy and reliability. An overall design that facilitates fast, easy service, reduces downtime and minimizes maintenance costs.

Geode systems are available immediately, either directly through MKS or through MKS channel partners world-wide. For more information please visit
