Expert Process Development

We shorten time-to-market for the process development phase of your new product introduction by tapping into Palomar’s 40 years of precision die attach and wire bond process experience and expertise. Automated assembly machines are only part of the total solution—a well-developed and stable process that uses readily available automated machines for ultra-high accuracy component placement attach and wire bonding is critical to long-term success.

Solutions

Our Innovation Centers will help you become the leader in your market. We’ll do this by providing state-of-the art assembly services that are capable of ultra-high precision die attach (epoxy, eutectic, flip chip, thermo-compression, void free vacuum reflow, wafer, deep access); wire bonding (gold wire ball bond, ball bumping, deep access, gold and aluminum wedge bonding, ribbon bonding); and die sorting.

Low to Medium Volume Production

Palomar Innovation Centers enable you to simultaneously deliver tangible working products to your customers—this is how we shorten your time-to-market. No large investment of capital equipment until your product is proven in the market. The capability to run “mini-production” at Palomar gives you maximum flexibility coupled with future plans for high-volume production. At any time, production can be seamlessly transferred to your own facility or to a high-volume outsource partner.
