JMAR Awarded Microelectronics Contracts

Feb 2003
SAN DIEGO, Calif., Feb. 21 -- JMAR Technologies Inc.'s Microelectronics Div. has been awarded two new contracts for approximately $5 million to enhance the semiconductor fabrication processes installed at the Advanced Reconfigurable Manufacturing for Semiconductors (ARMS) foundry owned and operated by the Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA) in Sacramento.

General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems, a prime contractor for DMEA, issued the contracts to JMAR as an element of the Defense Department's Advanced Technology Support Program. Since the ARMS foundry was established in 1999, JMAR has been involved in installing and implementing its chip fabrication processes, which include CMOS gate array, EEPROM and radiation-tolerant ultrathin silicon technologies.

Under a contract awarded by General Dynamics in 1998, JMAR supported the DMEA in the design and construction of the ARMS foundry. The foundry is a custom integrated circuit prototyping facility that produces microcircuits to replace obsolete military system electronics. JMAR maintains a semiconductor process engineering and operations group adjacent to DMEA's facility in Sacramento, where the work under the new contracts will be performed. JMAR develops advanced lasers and collimated plasma lithography in addition to providing semiconductor production and design services.
