MATERIALS:Interplex Industries, a leading global provider of precision components and assemblies, acquired Quantum Leap Packaging Inc. (QLP), a leading electronic packaging and polymer science company. Included in the transaction are all of QLP’s proprietary technologies including resin technologies such as QuantechTM semiconductor packaging. QuantechTM can be used to provide a lower cost and reliable air-cavity packaging solution compared to ceramic-based packages for the semiconductor packaging industry in applications such as high-power RF-Microwave assemblies, image sensors, HB-LEDs, MEMs and optical electronic systems. QLP’s innovative HermeTechTM package, based on QuantechTM technology, provides the semiconductor packaging industry’s first, true plastic hermetic package.
There is currently much discussion around the term "platform," which may be preceded by the adjectives "mobile," "wearable," "medical," "healthcare," etc. However, regardless of the platform being discussed, they usually have one key aspect in common: They tend to be wireless. So, why is this one aspect so fairly universal? The answer is convenience.
Everyone has a MEMS story. For most of us it’s probably the airbag that saved our lives or the life of a loved one. Perhaps it’s the tire pressure sensor that alerted us about deflation before we were stranded alone on a dark muddy road.
Bioimimicry is not merely a helpful design tool -- it also encourages designers to think not only about how to solve design problems by imitating nature, but how to make the products, materials, and systems they design more ecologically sound and nature-friendly.
