Haleos Announces New Sub-Micron Alignment and Bonding Capability for High Volume Electro-Optic Assembly and Manufacturing.

Business Editors/High Tech Writers

BLACKSBURG, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 6, 2001

Haleos, Inc., a leading optical manufacturing services provider, today announced the availability of its new and flux-less sub-micron alignment and bonding capability for high volume electro-optic assembly and manufacturing.

Conventional industry-wide bonders typically produce alignment and bonding specifications of plus or minus five microns. Current generation applications demand precision tolerances for manufacturing and packaging of laser die, VCSEL, and integrating silicon optical bench for transceiver modules.

The Company's precision tolerance serves applications that require sub-micron mounting on silicon substrates, InP, InGaAsP and a mix of other III-V semiconductor materials. By achieving sub-micron tolerances, coupling efficiencies (e.g. laser into fiber) are significantly improved and directly result in increased manufacturability of critical pass/fail devices. In many applications, it eliminates the need for active alignment, and its short cycle time allows for high volume processing.

"For our customers, sub-micron bonding accuracy translates into a vast positive impact," said David Sherrer, Haleos president and chief executive officer. "Access to this technology is vital for developing next generation devices."
