Microelectronic and optoelectronic packaging systems provider Palomar Technologies recently opened a new demonstration and applications development office located in Singapore.

The new Palomar Asia facility builds upon the base of customer support, evolving into a "one-stop shop" to offer full-capacity support. For example, the new facility supports more high-accuracy wire bond and die attach demonstrations on automated bonders, as well as contract manufacturing for complex hybrid applications through Palomar Technologies Assembly Services.

To meet the needs of its expanding installed base, Palomar Asia has tripled its workforce, mostly in the ranks of direct field service engineers. "Having direct field service engineers in every region with Palomar Technologies equipment has been key to our success," affirms PH Chan, Palomar Asia Managing Director. "By offering expert hardware, process and application support directly to our customers, we are able to quickly resolve the most complex microelectronic assembly challenges at our customer's sites."

The automated microelectronics manufacturing requirements for the APAC region spans markets from aerospace/defence, optoelectronic, LED, RF/Wireless and medical for high-accuracy die attach and high-reliability wire bonding. Even amidst recent world-wide economic strain, the APAC region has rapidly grown for Palomar Asia for both personnel and customer installed base. Palomar Technologies' most popular large work area die attach platform, the ultra-flexible 3800 Die Bonder and the "workhorse" Au wire/ball bump, deep access platform, the 8000 Wire Bonder have continually exceeded customer expectations for quality, accuracy and process expertise support.

Since his arrival at Palomar Asia in 2010, Mr. Chan has developed and expanded a local APAC Spare Parts Depot, increased the number of APAC sales representatives and accelerated the August 2013 marks the beginning of a new era for Palomar Asia. The new Palomar Asia facility offers a new clean room and demonstration laboratory, outfitted with wire bonding and die attach capabilities, as well as measurement and test equipment.
