2 Innovation for success
3 The challenges in medical technology The purpose of medical technology is, in particular, to improve the quality of treatment and life for patients, to enable patients to continue to live their lives independently and to ensure they receive the best possible support in their treatment. It offers solutions for improving current treatments and innovative products to provide patient care. Technological advances are constantly broadening the range of new, fascinating opportunities for the development and manufacture of electronic devices. In the medical field especially, the use of new technologies leads to convincing solutions. An important driver behind new developments is the progress the industry has made in miniaturization. New technologies make it possible for increasingly complex devices to combine more and more functions in less and less space. The advantages are obvious. We can now conduct medical examinations and surgical procedures that would have been unthinkable just a few years ago. The recent and ongoing advances in the area of miniaturization enable even the most difficult examinations and procedures to be minimally invasive. Implants can considerably improve patients quality of life. But aside from its functional advantages, the miniaturization of implants is also a vital part of how accepted a product is among patients. The condition of chronically ill patients can now be monitored seamlessly with the help of tiny devices and without having a notably adverse effect on their mobility. The demands placed on manufacturing technologies in the medical industry are unusually high. Ensuring consistently high quality is an absolute must; reliability and functionality have to be guaranteed at all times. Cicor is a reliable and innovative partner in the development of convincing solutions for the medical industry. Our expertise and experience in quality assurance and risk management, together with our use of the latest design and development tools as well as manufacturingtechnologies will be your success.
4 Electronic Solutions Innovative technological solutions for your electronics We are an international electronics supplier offering a wide range of production options for printed circuit board assembly, system assembly, box building, switch box construction, cable assembly, toolmaking and plastic injection molding. As a global company with production sites in Switzerland, Romania and Asia (Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia and China), we use our synergies to offer solutions based on extensive experience. Our offering comprises the development and manufacture of electronic components as well as complete devices and systems. We see ourselves as a partner for the entire product lifecycle from product development to serial production and after-sales services. Safety and traceability The traceability of components and system configurations is a key factor in being able to guarantee that quality requirements such as functional safety and system stability can be met. Our quality data management system far exceeds what is legally required. It has an extensive range of functions that are configured according to each customer s specific needs. Thanks to this system, we are able to offer customers a tailored level of traceability that meets stringent requirements.
5 Electronic Solutions High demands on development processes and manufacturing Services and products in the field of medical technology demand a high degree of reliability and trust. As we hold the relevant ISO certifications, our customers can rest assured that we comply with all quality standards. At Cicor, we develop and manufacture all medical devices under the same roof. Our philosophy: Design for Manufacturing (DFM). Our hardware and software concepts are aligned with ISO 60601, while all software development processes adhere to ISO The entire development process is fully documented with a view to the approval of the developed device. We use the latest technology, architectures and design methods to implement these regulatory requirements. Competencies and services Development and industrialization of hardware and software Advice and risk analyses Feasibility studies, specifications PCB layout Mold design Redesign / reverse engineering New Product Introduction (NPI), from individual electronic modules to full systems with configuration variants Test concept development (AOI, flying probe test, ICT, functional testing, x-ray, boundary & frame scan) Test engineering for hardware and software Quality data management, ensuring traceability throughout the entire product lifecycle Prototype production and testing Serial production Dedicated medical area with dust-free assembly room After-sales service Lifecycle management Certifications ISO 9001 Quality management systems ISO Medical devices Quality management systems ISO Environmental management systems Development process certified according to ISO 9001 ISO Development in line with ISO ISO ISO 62304
6 Electronic Solutions Electronics and plastics injection molding solutions from a single provider Together with our customers we realize sophisticated, innovative and compelling solutions and devices for medical applications. We are specialized in the manufacture of precision injection molding tools, precision injection molded plastic parts and 3D-MID technology (three-dimensional injection molded interconnect devices). This technology offers countless possibilities in the miniaturization of electronic circuits as it allows a near-arbitrary design of interconnect devices. Integrating mechanical and electronic functions into one component allows functional density to be increased significantly. 3D-MIDs can also be used as housings as they enable optimal use of space and a reduction in assembly times and processing stages. Thinking outside the box is one of our key strengths.
7 Advanced Microelectronics & Substrates Innovative power through technological expertise As a leading manufacturer of sophisticated microelectronics and high-quality substrates, we can provide you with a broad range of products and services of the highest standards. In the area of microelectronics, we offer state-of-the-art assembly and interconnect technologies as well as packaging technologies, In the field of substrate manufacturing and processing, we are characterized by the production of highly complex rigid, flexible and rigid-flexible printed circuit boards and substrates using thin-and thick-film technology. We work closely with our customers to develop and manufacture sophisticated products, ranging from prototypes to large-scale serial production. We offer a high degree of process stability combined with modern production facilities, consistent top-quality and absolute delivery reliability. Technologies Flex, rigid and rigid-flex PCBs 1 to 32 layer boards High Density Interconnects (HDIs) Stacked and staggered via constructions Panel and reel-to-reel production Rigid and flexible substrates using thin- and thick-film technology Multilayer circuits on polyimide, LCP, silicone, FR-4, FR-4 High-Tg, polyimide glass, BT and BT-Epoxy, HF substrate Microassembly CiP Chip in polymer/plastic Packaging Screening, tests, reliability checks
8 Advanced Microelectronics & Substrates Sophisticated Implants The demands placed on medical applications are high: their reliability and functionality must be guaranteed at all times while designs keep becoming smaller, more flexible and more complex. For implants that come in contact with human tissue in particular biocompatibility must always be ensured. Cicor manufactures complex circuits of various materials and realizes ultrafine structures, which can be less than 0.02 mm thick despite having a high functional density. Using CiP (chip in polymer/plastic) technology, the overall thickness of chip packages can be reduced to between 60 and 100 µm. State-of-the-art technology now makes it possible to manufacture multilayer circuits from biocompatible materials or stretchable components in conjunction with multilayer technology on flexible substrates..
9 Advanced Microelectronics & Substrates Reliability at every stage of the process The success of product innovations is often decided during the planning and development phase. Cicor is a one-stop shop that supports you from initial idea to development, manufacture and testing. We work very closely with our customers every step of the way to develop innovative solutions.
