Premier Semiconductor Services, the Tempe, Ariz.-based provider of backend manufacturing services, has opened a new facility in St. Petersburg, Fla. to provide quick-turn services for strategic east-coast accounts as well as to further solidify Premier’s growing counterfeit detection programs. To this end, Premier will offer a variety of counterfeit detection services such as: functional electrical testing, decapsulation, XRF testing, solderability, and advanced visual inspection.
Other standard Premier services such as scan, tape & reel, bake, lead conditioning, axial and programming will also be done in this facility to shorten cycle times for local customers.
According to Dave Loaney, Premier’s CEO, “The addition of this facility will be a real benefit to our east-coast customers. Having several facilities situated in strategic geographic locations helps us continue to provide full turn-key solutions for our customers to address their various backend service needs on a timely basis, wherever they are.”
