Daniel Evans began his career at Hughes Aircraft (now Palomar Technologies) as a Design Engineer in 1984 and later in several different key positions in R&D and Engineering. Mr. Evans developed many of the core technologies fundamental to Palomar Technologies’ automated equipment platforms; presently, these platforms are installed in thousands of machines around the world. Through this work, Mr. Evans received nine motion control and system patents. Additionally, he has published over 28 technical papers including the widely popular “AuSi and AuSn Eutectic Die Attach Case Studies.”
Throughout Mr. Evans' career at Palomar Technologies, he has worked in the positions of Design Engineer, Project Manager, Engineering Manager, VP of Engineering, Applications Manager, and now Chief Technical Officer. Mr. Evans’ experience in equipment design, customer application, and industry & customer roadmaps allows him to provide leadership of Palomar’s New Product Develop Committee. Palomar’s most recent products launched include the Model 9000 Wedge Bonder and Model 3880 High Precision Die Bonder.
Mr. Evans earned a B.S. Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University, an M.S. Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University (both degrees have an emphasis in Robotics and Controls), and a Certificate from the Executive Program for Scientists & Engineers at UCSD. He has also served on the Advanced Packaging Roadmap Committees for iNEMI, IMAPS, and ITRS.
Daniel lives in Oceanside, CA with his wife and has two sons.
