Integra Technologies is a one-stop shop for all phases of the semiconductor manufacturing process, from die preparation, packaging, and assembly to testing and beyond. The company has been ensuring industry-leading quality and on-time delivery for more than three decades. It today serves clients across the aerospace and defense, communications, space, semiconductor, and medical device sectors.
“Numerous clients approach us since other companies fail to offer solutions or on-shore capabilities,” says Brett Robinson, president and CEO, Integra Technologies. “We have libraries of solutions for customers that enable us to quickly resolve technical problems, as well a host of packaging and test abilities that no other company has in the US.”
Integra Technologies’ engineering group includes 75 people who hold extensive technical knowledge of assembly through test and reliability. From processing wafers made out of any material to helping clients find obsolete parts, the team is capable of handling diverse client requirements. In many cases, the engineering team has dealt with issues like raw-material crunch successfully by finding the right substitute.
Integra Technologies also maintains a sound inventory and supply system.
This is what enabled the company to serve clients seamlessly, even during the trying times of the pandemic—without any delay.
With its comprehensive services, Integra Technologies has been able to serve numerous clients over the years. For instance, Saluda Medical approached the company five years ago to create the world’s first ECAP-Controlled Closed-Loop spinal cord stimulation device. There were, however, multiple challenges, including high customization, long timelines, critical documentation process, high failure risk, and tight budget.
Integra Technologies supported Saluda in the ASIC package andtesting. It developed device tests to test every aspect of the ASIC’s function and critical safety measures, with the process and package being validated by the company and its partners. The company also conducted a comprehensive failure analysis by openly discussing risks and failures, utilized its Silicon Valley facility for packaging, and assisted Saluda with the development of test plans, packaging specifications, and documenting test system verification. This helped the client ramp from small volumes to commercial quantities.
In essence, Integra Technologies has been an indispensable part of Saluda’s product commercialization journey.

“Integra has witnessed and contributed to Saluda’s development from early on, including supporting us through the first patient implant in clinical trials. Despite the uncertainty of the outcome, support has been unwavering. We are now in the process of developing further test capabilities and changing ASIC packaging to improve miniaturization. Integra, via their Silicon Valley facility, is supporting this project in the small quantities that are the mainstay of our type of development. As Saluda strives toward commercializing potentially life-altering therapies and technologies, we look forward to continuing our work with Integra,” says Peter Aigner, electrical engineering manager, Saluda.
Instances of client success like this are a testament to Integra Technologies’ indomitable zeal for serving clients with utmost efficiency.
