Palomar partners with UK’s Electronics and Photonics Innovation Centre

Photonics and microelectronic device assembly & packaging equipment maker Palomar Technologies Inc of Carlsbad, CA, USA is partnering with the Electronics and Photonics Innovation Centre (EPIC) to establish a Palomar Demonstration Laboratory. As part of the partnership, Palomar is investing $1m in equipment, including a fully loaded 3880 die bonder and an 8000i ball/bump wire bonder for use by customers at the EPIC facility in Paignton, Torbay (the heart of an electronics and photonics cluster in the UK).

As a center of excellence supporting technological innovation and promoting collaborative activity between businesses and research institutions, EPIC (which is managed by TDA, a trading name of Torbay Economic Development Co Ltd) focuses on supporting start-up and spin-off companies and encourages foreign direct investment to Torbay and its microelectronics and photonics sector.

Palomar’s equipment will support many key businesses in Torbay’s photonics and microelectronics cluster, says Josef Schmidl, Palomar’s managing director EMEA. “Our focus is to enable our customers to realize the high-growth-potential opportunities that are available in these exciting, rapidly evolving industry sectors.”

“Palomar is one of many businesses who are seeing the opportunities that EPIC brings,” says EPIC director Wayne Loschi. “This type of collaboration will drive innovation and the emergence of new technologies in a thriving sector.”

Targeting European photonics companies, the Palomar Demonstration Laboratory provides the opportunity to learn more about the firm’s techniques driving the photonics market and also to take advantage of prototyping and process development services utilizing its decades of experience in the photonics market. In December, Palomar opened a full-service Innovation Center in Singapore to complement its existing Innovation Center in Carlsbad, and this latest demonstration laboratory further reaches out to photonics companies to make its solutions more readily available.
