Part number:


Microelectronics is a subfield of electronics. As the name suggests, microelectronics relates to the study and manufacture (or microfabrication) of very small electronic designs and components. Usually, but not always, this means micrometre-scale or smaller. These devices are made from semiconductor materials. Many components of normal electronic design are available in a microelectronic equivalent. These include transistors, capacitors, inductors, resistors, diodes and (naturally) insulators and conductors can all be found in microelectronic devices. Unique wiring techniques such as wire bonding are also often used in microelectronics because of the unusually small size of the components, leads and pads. This technique requires specialized equipment and is expensive.

Precision Tools for medical and microelectronics application:

Scope Tools is the current manufacturer of precision tools originally created in the late 1950's and produced by Circon Corp. (aka Circon-ACMI). 

Scope Tools understand that Circon-ACMI microTools have been difficult to find during the past 10-15 years as the division has become a smaller and smaller portion of a growing medically based company (Circon buying ACMI, then Gyrus). 

If you are not familiar with ACMI's precision tools and the quality and ready availability of Circon microTools please check the product catalog available in pdf format above.
