Noise and Vibration Control for LCD-TFT and Flat Panel Manufacturing Facilities

Colin Gordon Associates has significant experience in the unique design requirements for vibration and noise control in LCD TFT fabs. We have designed Generation 3, 3.5, 4, 4.5, 5, 5.5, 6, and 7 facilities. This work includes design for the specific vibration requirements for steppers, array testers, laser cutter and repair tools, probe stations, inspection equipment, etc., and in the control of vibration from typical sources within LCD TFT facilities, such as mechanical equipment, personnel, AGVs and RGVs, etc. We provide careful, calculated, and experienced design input in order to meet the facilities' requirements in a cost effective manner. We have current and past projects designing LCD-TFT facilities for the following companies:

  • Acer Display Technologies Incorporated
  • AU Optronics Incorporated
  • Candescent Technologies
  • Chi Mei Optoelectronics Corporation (CMO)
  • Chunghwa Picture Tubes, Ltd. (CPT)
  • Eagle TFT
  • HannStar Display Corporation
  • Motorola Flat Panel
  • Quanta Display Incorporated (QDI)

In addition to these projects specifically for LCD TFT facilities, Colin Gordon Associates has provided vibration and acoustics consulting services related to both design and problem-solving for almost every significant semiconductor manufacturer in the U.S., as well as many companies in Asia and Europe. These facilities include Wafer Fabrication, PCB, Assembly, Crystal Growing, etc.
