Palomar Technologies Presents Sub-5um Die Attach Placement Accuracy Webcast

Posted by Palomar Technologies MarCom Team on Tue, Jun 12, 2012

Carlsbad, CA – June 12, 2012 – Palomar Technologies, the world-leading provider of precision microelectronics and optoelectronic packaging systems, today announced that the company can support high-precision die attach to less than 5µm placement accuracies.

“As the trend to build smaller electronics pushes the limits of semiconductor packaging abilities, the need for high-accuracy and high-precision component placement often presents a challenge in itself,” stated Donald Beck, Palomar Technologies Assembly ServicesTM General Manager. “We are able to support [application dependent] requirements for ultra-high placement accuracies on our eutectic/epoxy 3800 Die Bonder and 6500 Die Bonder systems.”

The ultra flexible 3800 Die Bonder is designed for fully automatic, precision microelectronics assembly. The tightly regulated,computer-controlled work cell can perform up to three channels of adhesive dispense, component placement, eutectic die attach and flip chip operations over a spacious 35.5" x 20" work area. The 3800 Die Bonder is versatile, powerful and can provide specialized functions in addition to its primary functions.

The 6500 Die Bonder is designed for high-speed, fully automated precision component assembly and offers extraordinary micron-level placement accuracy for photonic, wireless and medical applications. This eutectic die bonder is designed for fully automatic precision component assembly—even up to 1.5µm placement accuracy (application dependent)—making component assembly practical and cost effective. Wafer Scale Packaging (WSP) eutectic die attach on the 6500 Die Bonder provides customers with a complete microelectronic solution for P-side down laser diode attachment (die-to-wafer), a pulsed heat pick tool for 80/20 Au/Sn pulsed reflow attachment, a wafer stage with steady state heating, and waffle or gel pack presentation of laser diode applications.

Mr. Beck is presenting a 30-minute live webcast on June 13 at 12:00pm Eastern Time, discussing new developments for ultra high-precision component packaging: “<5micron Placement Accuracy" target="_self">High-Reliability Component Attachment Process for <5micron Placement Accuracy ".

The webcast will cover a process solution for <5µm component attach" target="_self">automating <5µm component attach specific to organizations requiring high-reliability device packaging. In this webinar, Mr. Beck will cover methods that have been proven through real-world experiences related to the high-reliability microelectronics industry. Joining Mr. Beck will be Mr. Zeger Bok (Sr. Application Engineer) and Mr. Daniel Martinez (Assembly Services Lab Manager & Manufacturing Engineer) for live Q&A after the formal presentation.

Register now for the live webcast, presented on June 13 at Noon Eastern Time.

Palomar Technologies Develops Wire-Bond-Free Direct Attach for LEDs

Posted by Palomar Technologies MarCom Team on Wed, Feb 01, 2012

Carlsbad, CA – February 1, 2012 – Palomar Technologies, the world-leading provider of precision microelectronics and optoelectronic packaging systems, today announced a precision eutectic process development for direct attach light emitting diodes (LEDs).

“Direct-attach LEDs are the next generation of solid-state LED emitters that deliver superior value for consumer products and markets that include TV backlighting, camera flash and a variety of general illumination needs,” explains Donald Beck, General Manager of Palomar Technologies Assembly ServicesTM. “Assembly Services is supporting more than 390 700µm LEDs that are attached with an Au/Sn solder to a single 50mm metal core carrier. Palomar Technologies’ Pulsed Heat System is a major contributor to this development, allowing our precision die attach systems to control LED exposure much more effectively than most other processes. The bondpad-down design of direct-attach LEDs eliminates the need for wire bonds, yet improves the thermal management.”

Palomar Technologies is exhibiting at the LED-focused show, Strategies in Light 2012, in booth #709 on February 7-9 in Santa Clara, CA. Julie Adams, Director of WW Assembly Services Sales will be on site to assist in discussions about Palomar Technologies’ current LED packaging capabilities, including direct-attach LED eutectic bonding.

Also on February 7-9, Palomar Technologies is exhibiting as a premier sponsor at IMAPS RF 2012 in booth #RF01, held in San Diego, CA. Bradley Benton, Western Americas Sales Manager, will be presenting an overview of Palomar Technologies’ solutions and advanced RF automated packaging processes on February 8 at 1:00pm, local conference time.

Contact Palomar Technologies to arrange an on-site meeting at either Strategies in Light 2012 or IMAPS RF 2012.
