Garbsen, Germany and Vista, Calif. — FeinFocus USA and Palomar Technologies have teamed up to address the manufacturing challenges of the optoelectronics, MEMS/MOEMS and RF components markets.
Palomar's Process Development and Prototyping Services (PDPS) will use the FEINFOCUS FOX-160.25MFT X-ray inspection system for the inspection of advanced components, materials and packaging technologies. The companies will also publish joint technical papers on their findings with regards to process development, testing and manufacturing of optoelectronics and micromechanical components and assemblies.
This relationship with FEINFOCUS will give Palomar the ability to conduct real-time inspection of complex assemblies that include chip-on-board, bond wires, BGA, &muBGA and flip chip components, as well as other applications where precise measurement is required. The FEINFOCUS F.O.X. inspection system is said to offer sub-micron defect detection and the smallest focal spot size in the industry. Having won the 2001 VISION Award for Best New Inspection Product, the FOX-160.25 has proven to be a valuable asset for any production facility or lab environment.
Palomar's Process Development and Prototyping Services provides the design, engineering, prototyping, assembly and automation expertise, and/or metrology resources needed to bridge the gap between product concept and automated production for companies looking to develop or validate new products.
