Waddan Systems Overview
Waddan Systems was founded in 1988 as a small research and development company in Santa Clarita, California, USA to design, develop, manufacture, and market low cost monolithic silicon sensors. Since its inception, through a comprehensive in-house development program, the company has developed proprietary technologies and customized equipment to fabricate low cost high precision micro sensors and systems. These devices are fabricated in silicon, glass, alumina, lithium niobate, lithium tantalate or nickel employing computer-aided design tools, and totally customized batch processing techniques derived from the IC processing technology. The company utilizes bulk micromachining, surface micromachining, micromolding and laser trimming & welding processes. The greatest strength of the company lies in its approach towards an integrated product development cycle - from design and development through tooling for batch fabrication, wafer processing, in-process evaluation, and automated product testing are all integrated together by a customized development (software package) tool yielding a very short concept-to-product development cycle. For sensors the company operates a wafer fabrication facility handling up to 100mm wafers with a capacity to handle a batch 200 wafers at a time. For sensor support and systems electronics, it produces small custom high tolerance PCBs employing surface mount components as small as 0603. The company has been continuously improving its existing products with a strong IR&D program aimed advancing micro/nano-machining technologies for our next generation products. Waddan Systems is applied R&D company delivering working solutions for their sponsors.
