Trade Publication
Stamford, Connecticut-based FeinFocus USA Inc. and Vista, California-based Palomar Technologies Corp. have teamed to address the manufacturing challenges of optoelectronics, microelectromechanical systems/micro-optoelectromechanical systems and radio frequency components markets. Palomar's Process Development and Prototyping Services will use the Feinfocus FOX-160.25MFT x-ray inspection system for the inspection of advanced components, materials and packaging technologies. These 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.
