Embed Components in PCBs
Active components can be embedded directly into PCB’s
Shipco has researching and refining embedding of active electronic components directly into the PCB layers.
The simplest example is a SMT chip embedded in a multi-layer, improving PCB performance.
The connections to the chip are made by means of through hole vias through standard SMT leads, or laser via’s to the component leads.
The component connection is made chemically, followed by electroplating which means solder free assembly.
Lower capacitance’s due to shorter routing when dies are used and possibility to shield sensitive circuits totally are some of many advantages.
Well tested and in-circuit fully protected components must be used for obvious reasons.
Several patents have been granted to Shipco, and we exclusively produce PCBs using this technology.

We invented this method in 2002 and have been refining and improving it ever since.
Here are build samples and micro sections from production done in Ireland.
