DYCONEX - Manufacturer of Printed Circuits Boards for Medical Devices

DYCONEX specialises in interconnect solutions for implantable medical devices, avionics, aerospace and scientific equipment, plus semiconductor substrates and telecommunication systems. The company's main market is the medical sector where it supplies substrates for pacemakers and defibrillators, neurostimulation and modulation devices as well as hearing aids.

Ultra-HDI circuit boards

Among its wide range of capabilities and services are ultra-HDI circuit boards and cables, flex and rigid-flex interconnect, liquid crystalline polymer (LCP) solutions plus microfluidic substrates on polyimide and LCP for in vitro diagnostic solutions.

A management buyout from Oerlikon-Contraves in 1991 saw the founding of DYCONEX, which meanwhile has over 35 years of HDI (high-density interconnect) printed circuit board (PCB) experience.

PCBs for the medical sector

As a leading manufacturer of high-end, high-reliability PCBs with a strong focus on high-density interconnect and high-frequency applications, the main market for DYCONEX is the medical sector, which makes up 90% of its business. In this area, DYCONEX supplies, among other things, substrates for cardiac rhythm management including implantable pacemakers and defibrillators, neurostimulation and modulation devices as well as for external and cochlear hearing aids.

With its traditional strong focus on the healthcare sector, DYCONEX understands the characteristics and needs of medical customers. In order to prevail at forefront of this industry, we progressively invest in key technological trends, first-class manufacturing equipment and our highly qualified and motivated workforce.

Our modern 65,000 sq.ft facility, including a 6,500 sq.ft. Class 10,000 clean room, offers a highly flexible production environment that meets the market's most challenging interconnect requirements.

Circuit boards for implantable medical devices

Our dedication to the high-end medical industry is reflected in our peerless wide range of capabilities and services, which include:

  • Ultra-HDI circuit boards for implantable medical devices and hearing-aid applications
  • Ultra-HDI cables for medical imaging equipment
  • Flex and rigid-flex interconnect for 3D miniaturisation
  • Liquid crystalline polymer (LCP) solutions for HF, hermetic and biocompatible applications
  • Microfluidic substrates on polyimide and LCP for in vitro diagnostic solutions
  • Six-sigma processes
  • Traceability and change management
  • Outbound logistics

The expectations that leading medical OEMs place on their PCB contractor go far beyond technological skills. For sustainability in the challenging world of medical high-end PCBs, suppliers must fundamentally make a full commitment to operational excellence, ensuring repeatable and reliable volume production, and compliance to strict medical regulations. Furthermore, effective consulting services on PCB build-up, design and materials are requirements to meet medical engineering's challenging requirements for new-generation substrates. DYCONEX offers all of that.

Moreover, DYCONEX is an integral part of the MST Group, which consists of five technology companies located in Germany, the US and Switzerland. This globally active group provides innovative products and services for medical devices, especially implants, and other high-reliability/high-performance industries. The offering includes, among other things, HDI/microvia PCBs, ceramic substrates, electronic module design and manufacturing, batteries and hermetic feedthroughs for implants as well as catheter technology.

Our holistic understanding of medical device manufacturing, our technological skills, first-class production, high quality standards and our cooperative team of professionals will put your PCB ideas into practice.
