Apr 16, 2003

Vista, Calif. � April 10, 2003 �- Palomar Technologies, Inc., a leading manufacturer of high-precision assembly systems, announced that its Gold Connection� Flip Chip Bonding System has been selected as a Fiberoptic Product News 2002 Silver Technology Award Winner in the category of Automation/Packaging.

Palomar's Gold Connection provides a complete solution for gold bump, flip chip applications using solderless interconnect technologies. The Gold Bumper� produces bumps on either wafers or singulated die. The Flip Chip TCB� (Thermocompression Bonder) provides die flip and attach capability for small or large volume production.

Winning products are selected based on technological innovation, design, usefulness, and response from Fiberoptic Product News readers and editors. Fiberoptic Product News (FPN), a Reed Business Publication, is the global source for fiberoptic technology and applications and has 37,000 readers.

The award was presented at the Optical Fiber Conference (OFC) in Atlanta, GA on March 24, 2003. Winners were selected from the more than 2000 new products that appeared in Fiberoptic Product News in 2002. After a vote by the 37,000 FPN readers, the top fifty were reviewed by FPN editors, who chose 24 nominees in six product categories. Final voting took place via the Internet on the FPN web site.

"This is a confirmation of the excellence of the Gold Connection Flip Chip Bonding System by both the editors who select and write about innovative products in the optoelectronics field and the technical community who purchase and use optoelectronic products," said Bruce Hueners, Palomar's vice president of marketing.

"The Gold Connection is an integrated solution that addresses the industry's growing need for increased package density, reliability, and signal performance, while providing a clean, environmentally safe alternative to lead-based processes," Hueners added.
