Companies Enter Into Microbolometer Production Agreement
AMI Semiconductor of Pocatello, Idaho, a supplier of integrated mixed-signal and structured digital products, and Flir Systems Inc. of Portland, Ore., a specialist in commercial infrared technology, have entered into a partnership for the high-volume manufacture of uncooled microbolometer IR detectors.
Under the agreement, Flir Systems will install its microbolometer detector process at AMI Semiconductor’s Class 1 fabrication plant.
The arrangement is expected to extend detector fabrication capability and to increase yield.
