New Technology Complements Existing Product Portfolio and Broadens Customer Base for Next Generation Semiconductor Packaging SolutionsWILMINGTON, Mass.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Oct. 24, 2005— Quantum Leap Packaging, a leading provider of high-performance electronic component packaging utilizing a proprietary Quantech(TM) Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) compound, today announced its purchase of the Connector-in-Package (CiP) product line from Silicon Bandwidth Inc. of San Jose, California. The new technology will complement and broaden Quantum Leap's current product portfolio to include applications utilizing Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCOS). Quantum Leap will obtain all IP rights and assume direct customer support and manufacturing responsibility. Financial terms of the deal are not being disclosed.
CiP Technology combines semiconductor packaging with built-in connector systems, resulting in significant advantages over traditional chip-on-flex and chip-on-board solutions. Application benefits include higher overall yield and lower applied costs. A key product application utilizing CiP technology is for Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCOS) packages which are used in projection displays, biomedical equipment and biometric sensors.
"This technology complements our existing product line, fits nicely within our target markets and will serve to broaden our customer base," said Jim LaCasse, CEO of Quantum Leap. "The acquisition has enabled Quantum Leap to simultaneously strengthen our portfolio while continuing to offer industry-leading, next generation semiconductor packaging solutions into the market place."
