Definition of Embedded Components
Typically embedded components include embedded resistance and embedded capacitance. These passive components can occupy a great deal of the surface real estate of a PCB. By embedding these to internal layers, not only can PCB sizes be reduced, but many cost increases are offset by higher production throughput making this a win-win situation for the PCB user.
Our experience with embedded resistance has been primarily with materials from Ticer Corporation (www.ticertechnologies.com). Their embedded resistance material can be procured on a variety of materials, including from suppliers Rogers and DuPont. It's fairly easy to work with, making discrete resistance values easier to achieve in consistency.
