Palomar Technologies Triples Cleanroom Capacity for Microelectronics Assembly Services
(Nanowerk News) Palomar Technologies, provider of precision automation equipment and process development for microelectronic assembly, announces the expansion of its cleanroom assembly area for Palomar Microelectronics assembly services. Palomar has tripled its cleanroom space and increased its prototyping, applications engineering, process development, assembly, and test services capabilities with its new 2,500 square foot (232.26 square meter) class 100K and 500 square foot (46.45 square meter) class 10K cleanrooms. The expansion enables rapid prototyping and fast turn-around so OEMs can get their products into development or to market faster.
Palomar Microelectronics is a segment of Palomar Technologies that provides quick-turn product development, rapid prototyping, test, and assembly services, as well as continued process development during or after manufacturing services, for microelectronic applications. Processes include advanced wire bonding, gold ball bumping, and precision component placement for semiconductor packages, high power LEDs, MEMS devices, microwave and RF components, optoelectronic packages, multichip modules, and hybrids.
“The new cleanroom space allows us to provide microelectronic services for many of the emerging technologies in areas such as MEMS, high bright LEDs, and other advanced packaging applications and to speed delivery of these services to our customers,” said Donald Beck, operations manager for Palomar Microelectronics.
