Asymtek Wins 2008 Global Technology Award for Spectrum S-920N Series of Scalable Dispensing Platforms for Microelectronics Packaging

Carlsbad, CA - August 26, 2008 - Asymtek, a Nordson company and leader in dispensing, coating, and jetting technologies, announced it received a 2008 Global Technology Award from Global SMT & Packaging magazine for its Spectrum(TM) S-920N Series of scalable dispensing platforms. These systems adapt to the needs and requirements of high-volume microelectronics manufacturing and printed circuit board assembly, such as flip chip and CSP underfill. They incorporate Asymtek's patented process controls that deliver increased throughput, accuracy, and productivity.

This is the fourth consecutive Global Technology Award won by Asymtek. The Global Technology Awards recognize the best new innovations in the printed circuit assembly and packaging industries. Entries are judged by an independent panel based on the product's innovation, speed/throughput improvements, quality contribution, cost benefits, environmental considerations, ease of use/implementation, and maintainability/repairability. The award was presented at a ceremony held during the SMTA International exhibition and conference in Orlando, FL on August 19, 2008.

The Spectrum S-920N Series can be configured with single or dual lanes, and one, two or three heat stations (up to six with dual lane) depending on capacity, process control, application, and footprint requirements. The system footprint is a slim 600 x 1321mm (23.6 x 52.0 in.) with a single heat station, 850 x 1321mm (33.5 x 52.0 in.) for two heat stations, and 1100 x 1321mm (43.3 x 52.0 in.) for three heat stations. As process needs change, the platform can be upgraded in the field and configured to meet specific dispensing requirements, from simple dots of silver epoxy or solder paste to underfilling flip chips with extremely tight keep-out zones. The dual-lane configuration is ideal for applications with long preheat cycles or long flow-out times. Dispensing can be done in one lane while parts in the second lane reach temperature set point or flow-out occurs.

"Winning the Global Technology Award is acknowledgement of the great job done by the team at Asymtek developing and designing the new product line," said John Byers, president, Asymtek. "The Spectrum Series has been well-received in the marketplace because of its flexibility, innovative features, high quality repeatable results, and low cost-of-ownership."
