ORPE Technologiya is to improve quality of domestic microcircuits

16 July 2018
JSC ORPE Technologiya named after A.G.Romashin (a member of the holding company RT-Chemcomposite of Rostec State Corporation) set up batch production of glass-ceramic substrates for microcircuits. Previously such products were ordered from abroad. New products are superior in quality to their foreign analogues. The company is prepared to meet the demand of domestic enterprises of the electronic, aviation, ship-building and defense industries for these products.

Glass-ceramic substrates are meant for the manufacture of film circuitry and electronics products. It is precisely the substrates where microcircuit tracks are etched into, therefore their quality directly influences the service life of electronics.

The substrates made by ORPE Technologiya feature working surface finish to be superior to their foreign analogues. Furthermore, due to the matched thermal expansion coefficients of the products and the films applied onto the working surface, the quality of domestic microcircuits is to be further enhanced.

“Despite a great demand for such products, they were unavailable in Russia. By meeting the governmental order, we were able not only to revive the production process of the Soviet period but also to raise key figures to a breakthrough level. Thus, one of the stages for localization of electronics production as applied to military-industrial sector inside Russia can be considered completed”, said Andrei Silkin, Director-General of ORPE Technologiya.

High quality of the products and readiness of the company for batch production have been proved by inter-agency tests. Besides, new products of ORPE Technologiya passed the tests at the Russian centers of competence specialized in electronics development. At present, an order for production of the first 30, 000 substrates is confirmed on the part of the enterprises in Omsk, Penza and St. Petersburg. With a growth in demand, the company is capable of increasing the annual capacity up to 100, 000 glass- ceramic substrates.
