SINGAPORE, April 16, 2019 — Palomar Technologies has expanded its Innovation Center in Singapore to meet the demanding assembly needs of advanced photonics packages. Opened in November 2018 in partnership with the Lux Photonics Consortium and DenseLight Semiconductors, Palomar Technologies’ Innovation Center-Asia provides new product introduction (NPI) teams with services in process development, device package prototyping, test and measurement, process maturation, and low-volume production for designing and launching new high-performance packages that will enable the Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G wireless networks. The Innovation Center-Asia also creates a path for customers to enable a seamless transfer to high-volume production, which is usually done in Asia.

“The photonics market is exploding and for the many companies with little to no experience in assembling photonics device packaging or the equipment capabilities, they face a high risk of successfully launching their product — most will die in the proverbial ‘Valley of Death’ because they simply don’t understand how to manufacture their device cost-effectively,” said Rich Hueners, vice president of Global Sales and managing director at Asia-Pacific for Palomar Technologies. “By partnering with the Palomar Innovation Center, customers have the advantage of easily bridging from NPI to high volume with significantly lower costs. Palomar has over 40 years of deep industry experience in the design and assembly of photonics and microelectronics devices. Companies new to this market gain exponentially from our experience.”
