NexLogic Technologies is gearing up to produce higher quantities in expanded PCB-SMT, microelectronics assembly and manufacturing
December 4, 2020
SAN JOSE, Calif.—NexLogic Technologies, Inc. is adding a 3,000-square-foot class 10,000 clean room to further expand its printed circuit board-surface mount technology (PCB SMT) and microelectronics assembly and manufacturing operations. The addition meets medical OEM demands to go beyond prototype quantities and provide pilot runs, medium quantities, and medium-to-high scale quantities that avoid offshore production and keep OEMs’ IP safe in the U.S., the company said in a release.
The new clean room augments an existing Class 10,000 clean room that’s been operational for the last few years. A large number of infrastructure enhancements and new machines will be added, including wire bonders, pick-and-place machines, pull and shear test devices, new dispensers, and state-of-the-art optical and laser inspection tools and systems. All are scheduled to be installed and operational in the first and second quarters of 2021, the company said.
“This new clean room and its collection of cutting-edge equipment and technologies enhances NexLogic’s capabilities in the areas of chip-on-board, flip chip devices, fine-pitch BGAs and QFNs, interposers, silicon packaging, and specialized devices, such as MEMS and photonics chips,” said Zulki Khan, president and founder of NexLogic Technologies, in the release. “All are major technologies for the microelectronics assembly and manufacturing of such small and light-weight medical products as ingestible, insertable, portable, and remote monitoring medical devices for analysis and diagnosis of different medical conditions.”
Khan said that customers have traditionally relied on NexLogic for prototype quantities.
“In particular, medical electronics OEM customers have steadily come to us for prototype quantities for their new product advancements, such as portable, wearable, and ingestible devices,” he said. “In these cases, however, with our new clean room expansion, we’re gearing up to make those same devices and processes into pilot runs, medium quantities, and medium-to-high scale quantities so that our medical electronics OEMs can keep their intellectual property (IP) safe in the U.S,, instead of shipping it offshore.”
