SemiGen increases contract manufacturing capability with new assembly, test equipment

SemiGen is pleased to announce that after moving into their new state-of-the-art facility, they have made an additional capital investment of over a half million dollars in new production, wafer fab and testing equipment to support customer demand. The new equipment consists of improvements across their entire service platform and includes: a new Mycronic MY300 pick and place system; two new Westbond wire bonders, a new Centrotherm eutectic vacuum chamber, new HTOL / HTRB ovens; as well as a new Disco DAD3220 dicing saw.

In addition, they have made upgrades in their high frequency testing department which includes several new pieces of performance testing and metrology tools.

I’m excited to be in a position to continue to invest in and grow this important domestic outsource business,” said Tim Filteau, president of SemiGen. “Our CEO, Jim Morgan, has said we must do our best to help our customers augment their design, assembly and hi-rel testing and up-screening capabilities, and it feels great to see this new equipment getting up and running to do just that.

Their services and products are designed to fill voids in the manufacturing supply chain and production floor. SemiGen’s design and manufacturing center includes wire bonding to Si, GaAs and GaN chips, RF/microwave and PCB assembly, mixed signal digital and analog assembly, module repair and high frequency testing and upscreening services. In recent years, SemiGen has invested in coupling their services with in-stock product solutions by carrying the diodes, active and passive semiconductor devices and bonding supplies needed for successful production of several types of solid-state, multi-function assemblies (MFA) and components. Bonding supplies are available for online purchase. Their team helps with designs, builds prototypes and handles volume production runs within new their 37,000 square foot facility in Manchester, N.H. The facility also includes a class 10,000 clean room. Manual to fully automatic assembly solutions are now available.

With their recent upgrades in place, SemiGen is also offering wafer processing of silicon wafers, as well as processing ceramic substrates. Processing services provided include any combination of photolithography, wet etch, dry etch, metallization, grinding, polishing and in-process metrology.

Their recent investments in their RF and Microwave testing and environmental screening lab has also enabled them to offer high-reliability screening of amplifiers, FETs, MMICs, transistors, diodes and other RF and microwave components operating up into mmWave frequencies.

Tests can be performed and delivered with full documentation in adherence with MIL-PRF-19500, MILPRF-38534, and MIL-PRF-38535 requirements. Element evaluation and screening options from Class H, Class K, TX, TXV, S-level, as well as custom SCD driven requirements, are available.
