Stamford, CT, May 2, 2003. FeinFocus USA and Palomar Technologies have teamed to address the unique manufacturing challenges of the optoelectronics, MEMS / MOEMS, and RF components markets. Palomar's Process Development and Prototyping Services (PDPS) will use the Feinfocus F.O.X. X-ray inspection system for the inspection of advanced components, materials, and packaging technologies.

The companies will also publish joint technical papers on their findings with regards to process development, testing, and manufacturing of optoelectronics and micro-mechanical components and assemblies.

Palomar Technologies, headquartered in Vista, CA, is a supplier of equipment used in component development and assembly. This relationship with Feinfocus will give Palomar the ability to conduct real-time inspection of complex assemblies that include chip-on-board, bond wires, BGA, µBGA, and flip-chip components, as well as other applications where exceptionally precise measurement is required. The Feinfocus F.O.X. inspection system offers sub-micron defect detection and the smallest focal spot size in the industry. Having won the 2001 Vision Award for Best New Inspection Product, the FOX-160.25 has proven to be a valuable asset for any production facility or lab environment.

Palomar's Process Development and Prototyping Services provides the design, engineering, prototyping, assembly and automation expertise, and/or metrology resources needed to bridge the gap between product concept and automated production for companies looking to develop or validate new products.

"Working with Feinfocus to create or improve our customers' packaging processes is keeping within the goal we established for our Process Development and Prototyping Services," explained Kevin Kron, Palomar's manager of Applications Engineering. "Quality and time to market are essential for our customers. The new Feinfocus F.O.X. inspection system with its ease of use and accuracy allows instantaneous test results. This has allowed us to significantly reduce development time and ensures our customers' requirements are fulfilled."
