ISO Certifications Upgraded 
ISO International Standards help us increase productivity and reduce costs by minimizing waste and errors. We’ve upgraded our certifications to ISO 13485:2016 and ISO 9001:2015, thanks to the efforts of Quality Manager Taren Nguyen and his team. If you’re not familiar with these strategic tools, here’s the details:
  • ISO 13485:2016 specifies requirements for a medical device quality management system. To be certified, we demonstrated our ability to provide medical devices and related services that consistently meet customer and applicable regulatory requirements.
  • ISO 9001:2015 specifies requirements for a generic quality management system. To be certified, we demonstrated our ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer, statutory and regulatory requirements. In addition, we demonstrated how we enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application and continuous improvement of the system.

Welcome Sales Engineer Colleen Ewanich

Colleen Ewanich, a ceramics engineer with 20 years of semiconductor industry experience, has joined Promex as our new sales engineer. As the primary point of contact for medical and biotech device customers, Colleen works with our engineering and production teams to expedite solutions. Her experience with IC package qualification and engineering evaluations gives her a strong understanding of your semiconductor production and assembly challenges. Previously, Ewanich was the business development manager at Integra Technologies and a technical program manager at Ormet Circuits and Nippon Steel Chemical. She has also held consulting and engineering positions at Toshiba America, LSI Logic and at National Semiconductor's Thailand IC Packaging Factory. Ewanich holds a BS in Ceramic Engineering from New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University.

Exploring the Destructive New Generation of Flexible Hybrid Electronics

“Electronics on Everything” may soon be more than just a promise with the advent of flexible hybrid electronics. FHE leverages the low cost of printed plastic film substrates and the performance of semiconductor devices to create a new category of electronics. What makes this technology so exciting is that it provides two unique factors traditional technology cannot: using additive processing to reduce manufacturing cost and enabling placement of devices on conformal, flexible or stretchable surfaces, also at low cost. There are exciting applications in just about every industry – medical, automotive, industrial, consumer. In fact, FHE may be the disruptive technology that boosts the number of IoT devices in 2020 from the current forecast of 30 billion to previous forecasts of more than a trillion. FHE was the focus of a recent unique event at Nextflex in San Jose organized by MEPTEC and sponsored by Promex and other industry firms.

Otte Presents at IEEE VLSI Test Symposium

The IEEE VLSI Test Symposium tapped Promex President and CEO Dick Otte for a presentation on the status, needs and potential solutions for testing photonic devices and products. Held earlier this month in San Francisco, the symposium explored emerging trends and innovative solutions to the challenges of testing, debugging and repairing of microelectronic circuits and systems. Dick and his fellow panel members explored several aspects of photonics transceivers, including machine learning applications. 

See us at the Medical Electronics Symposium May 16-17 in Dallas

MEPTEC, SMTA and INEMI have joined forces to make this year’s Medical Electronics Symposium even bigger and better. More than 30 exhibitors will display advances in electronic technologies and manufacturing for medical and bioscience applications. Promex is proud to be a Silver Sponsor of this prestigious event. Visit us in Booth 20, May 16-17, at the University of Texas at Dallas.  
Last year's symposium attracted about 200 technology experts, entrepreneurs and service providers interested in implantable defibrillators, neurostimulators and drug delivery, interventional catheters, PillCams, ultrasound transducers, hearing aids, biosensors, microfluidics and wireless communications, as well as future diagnostic and treatment solutions that may use stretchable electronics, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) or nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS). For those applications and others, we can provide you with innovative IC packaging and heterogeneous assembly solutions.
