New Deep Gold Line Improves Panel Utilization for Hard Gold Applications
Burnaby, BC, Canada – March, 2018 –
Enigma Interconnect, a manufacturer of high quality bare Printed Circuit Boards (PCB’s) in Western Canada, has installed a new line which offers double sided selective and flash/full body electroplating in hard gold options. This service is offered in-house and is now part of Enigma’s quick turn capabilities.

Panel Gold Plating (or Flash Gold) is an electroplated finish, available in both hard and soft gold options. “Enigma is currently offering hard gold which is ideally used for products such as PCMCIA or mini-cards that have both solderable requirements and some plug-in edge fingers,” says John Parsons, Enigma’s Engineering Manager, “The gold thickness is typically 8 ± 4 micro inches thick.” Enigma’s Deep Gold Line improves panel utilization for designs incorporating card edge connectors and those with card edge connectors on multiple sides of the PCB.

“Continuing to expand our services with the latest technology is part of our commitment to build a better, more cost-effective board,” says Doris Meadley, Sales and Business Development Manager at Enigma. “For over 45 years, our benchmark for success continues to be the new and repeat orders placed by our loyal customer base.  We are grateful to them for continuing to make us their #1 PCB Source.”
