Portland, Ore. — Electro Scientific Industries Inc. announces that Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) purchased Electro-Scientific Industries Inc.'s (ESI) new Model 2100 thin-film on silicon laser trimming system.
Using the ESI Model 2100 and its modular system approach to process integration, Analog Devices is expecting to benefit from the combined capabilities of this new platform in trimming some of their high performance products.
ESI designed the Model 2100 to be the fastest and most flexible laser processing solution on the market. The design includes the latest solid-state laser technology allowing manufacturers to optimize their process for today's linear, mixed signal and sensor trimming requirements. The Model 2100 features wavelength options, including a patented 1.3-µm wavelength diode-pumped laser process, which reduces or eliminates laser-induced opto-electric response and improves "trimmability" of most analog circuits. The elimination of optoelectric effects increases system yield and throughput.
Electro Scientific Industries Inc. (ESI) is a global supplier of manufacturing equipment to increase productivity for customers in the semiconductor, passive components and electronic equipment markets.
