Molded Interconnect Devices (MIDs) are plastic substrates with electrical infrastructure. The fabrication of MIDs is usually based on injection molding and different process chains may be identified from this starting point. The use of MIDs has been driven primarily by the automotive sector, but recently the medical sector seems more and more interested. In particular, the possibility of miniaturization of 3D components with electrical infrastructure is attractive. The paper describes possible manufacturing routes and challenges of miniaturized MIDs based on two component injection molding and subsequent metallization. This technology promises cost-effective and convergent manufacturing approaches for both macro and micro applications. This paper presents the results of industrial MID production based on two component injection molding and discusses the important issues for MID production that can modulate the qualities of final MID. Results and discussion presented here can be a valuable used guide for mass production of molded interconnect devices.
