These certifications are important to ensure we meet your requirements for quality, regardless of the market(s) that you are working in.
Our over-molded QFN/DFN packages and pre-molded air-cavity QFN packages (OmPP) offer a fast, convenient solution for your needs, ranging from prototype to volume production. We offer same-day assembly services that reduce your time to market, while our advanced assembly services can accommodate such structures as flip chip, stacked die, SiP, chiplets, MCM and CoB.
Our parent company, Promex Industries, specializes in design, packaging and heterogeneous assembly of complex medical and biotech devices for a variety of applications, including microelectronic subassemblies; Class II & III implantables and wearables; custom sensors and transducers; microfluidic, ultrasound and disposable devices; high-resolution imaging arrays; and camera and diagnostic equipment.
Promex Industries is located in Silicon Valley, and provides design-for-manufacturing (DFM) services, materials science expertise and broad assembly capabilities for small- to mid-volume onshore production. Among Promex’s services are RoHS-optimized surface-mount technology (SMT), wafer thinning, dicing, wire-bonding, flip chip, and overmolding, which are performed in Class 100 and Class 1000 cleanrooms. Like QP Technologies, Promex is ISO 13485:2016 and ISO 9001:2015 certified and ITAR registered, as well as IPC certified.
