Taiwan-based copper foil maker Co-Tech Growth may see its shipments for high-frequency and high-speed CCL functions rise 20% on yr in 2021, primarily pushed by the launch of Intel’s new Whitley CPU platform in first-quarter 2021, based on business sources.
C-Tech has had its PCIe 4.zero high-frequency/velocity copper foil merchandise validated by Intel, AMD, and Taiwan’s OEM and ODM companies, and has even gained a preemptive presence within the section of PCIe 5.zero supplies, the sources stated.
As severs adopting new Intel Whitley CPU platform are anticipated to enter quantity manufacturing beginning late first-quarter 2021, shipments of high-frequency/velocity copper foils for server-use CCLs and PCBs will rise within the second quarter, pushing up the general cargo ratio for such product to over 20% subsequent yr, the sources continued.
Its shipments for high-end thick copper boards, versatile PCBs and 5G antenna functions are anticipated to problem 30% in 2021, including additional momentum to the corporate’s revenues and earnings for subsequent yr, the sources famous.
As its current month-to-month capability of 1,800 metric tons is just not adequate to satisfy market demand, Co-Tech plans to speculate NT$Four billion (US$140.35 million) to arrange a brand new plant in central Taiwan, which is predicted to extend annual capability by 10,000 metric tons when turning into operational in 2023, the sources stated.
