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. 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 has over 35 years of high-density interconnect (HDI) printed circuit board (PCB) experience.
Printed circuit boards and medical device substrates
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 cochlear- and external 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 the forefront of this industry, we progressively invest in key technological trends, first-class manufacturing equipment and our highly qualified and motivated workforce.
Our modern 65,000ft² facility, including a 6,500ft² Class 10,000 clean room, offers a highly flexible production environment that meets the market’s most challenging interconnect requirements.
Ultra-HDI circuit boards and cables, LCP substrates and hermetic substrates
Our dedication to the high-end medical industry is reflected in our peerless wide range of capabilities and services, which includes:
- 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

- 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.
