VISTA, Calif. -- Palomar Technologies introduces theLaser Diode Assembly Cell (LDA), a new high-precision assembly systemthat fully automates complex laser diode component assembly. The LDAeliminates manual processes by precisely placing and attaching microchipsto their packaging. The system uses a patented heat process that controlsthe reflow temperature for high yield, with a placement accuracy of ±5 microns. Palomar's system enables optoelectronic manufacturers to meetgrowing volume requirements by increasing yield and throughput, whilereducing costs.

"Increased automation is critical to meeting the high volume productionrequirements needed to support the growing optical and mobile Internet,"said Gary Gist, chief executive officer of Palomar Technologies. "TheLDA is the first to provide full automation while achieving high accuracyand high yield."
