Partnering opportunity

A Korean company offers metallized ceramic substrate for electronics with its newly developed technology of sputtered thick coatings.


A Korean company as a leader in the semiconductor testing market wants to provide ceramic substrates to which newly developed sputtered thick coating technology has been applied. The products are high in thermal conductivity, stability and heat dissipation. The company aims to be an original equipment manufacturer(OEM) for electronics companies under commercial or manufacturing agreements.

Partner sought

- Type of partner sought: company - Specific area of activity of the partner : The company’s coating technology can be applied to semiconductor, power semiconductor, LED(Light-Emitting Diode), power source, deposition system. Moreover, it can be applied to the industries of medical, military, aerospace, automotive, transportation, renewable energy and so on. - The task to be performed : Under commercial agreement or Manufacturing agreement, a partner company can order their products to be coated/metalized by this Korean company.


A Korean company, established in 1996, has been a world class supplier of probe card solutions for memory and system LSI (Large Scale Integrated) applications. Since 2009, the company has been providing metalized ceramic substrates for electronics to its customers. It also has repair centers in Korea, China, and Taiwan With long and professional experience in semiconductor testing market, the company has devoted to developing high efficient magnetron sources based on the plasma diagnostics and synthesis of functional thin films. This newly developed sputtered thick coating(STC) technology can be applied not only to ceramic, metal and polymer substrates but also to various industries. With its advantages, the company expects to grow their market shares all over the world since it has been proved that the demand for ceramic & metal PCB substrates is increasing due to a growing market for LED BLU, high brightness/high power LEDs and high power modules. The key technology of sputtering technology is performing a thick coating on ceramic, metal and polymer substrates using the high rate and efficiency magnetron sputtering. Here, “sputtering” is a vacuum process used to deposit thin/thick films on substrates It is performed by applying a high voltage across a low-pressure gas to create a "plasma“, which consists of electrons and gas ions in a high energy state. During sputtering, energized plasma ions strike a "target", composed of the desired coating material, and cause atoms from that target to be ejected with enough energy to travel to, and bond with, the substrate. The company is closely working with major electronics companies in Korea for now and is seeking more opportunities to collaborate with other potential client companies around the world. Any companies who are interested in ordering their products to be coated or metalized by this Korean company would be welcomed. Commercial agreement or manufacturing agreement can be mutually made or the company is open to other kinds of suggestions in collaboration.

Advantages and innovations

- has high thermal conductivity and stability - better performing insulator than existing insulators - has superior heat dissipation performance - uses green technology by applying dry processing instead of wet processing - provides low price but high switched ampere depending on the thickness - easy to control film characteristics and microstructure of coatings - can be applied better in industrial applications such as metal, ceramic, polymer

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
