STI’s 186m² cleanroom facility produces military and medical devices.
“This is another example of our commitment to our new and existing customers by investing in facilities and capital equipment needed to keep STI on the cutting edge of electronics manufacturing,” said David Raby, STI president and ceo.
The cleanroom is certified to ISO Class 6 (Class 1000) air cleanliness standards but was built to maintain and operate at ISO Class 5 (Class 100) standards. With on-site temperature, humidity and particle-counter monitors, STI provides daily monitoring to ensure continuous compliance with ISO14644-1:1999.
STI has a patented IC/DT that also will benefit from the increase in cleanroom size. IC/DT packaging technology integrates thermal management and imbeds unpackaged components and bare die in a 3-D laminate substrate, which reduces heat and increases reliability.
