Silicon Laboratories Inc. has installed FEI Co.'s Vectra 986 circuit edit system. Silicon Labs will use the system to edit prototype devices while reducing overall cost and preserving critical time-to-market advantages.

The use of circuit edit equipment is important for manufacturers facing short development cycles and tight time pressures. Editing prototypes with focused ion beam (FIB) technology allow manufacturers to modify circuit performance and optimize device characteristics so that the production runs of silicon are correct and devices perform to specification. It is especially important for complex device designs that are hard to simulate.

"Silicon Labs develops ICs for demanding applications within the communications market where timely introduction of innovative technology is critical," said Abhay Misra, Silicon Labs' director of manufacturing technology.
