Since its founding in March 1990, Colin Gordon Associates has worked on many hundreds of projects. These have ranged in size and complexity from problem solving studies involving one or two man-days of effort to long-term projects involving the design and construction of major industrial and commercial complexes. The list below shows major work areas and representative clients in each area, some of which may have been carried out by CGA staff while at other firms.
We have provided design, measurement and problem solving services on several hundred microelectronics facilities involved in microchip fabrication. These facilities include Wafer Fabrication, PCB, Assembly, Crystal Growing, etc. "End User" clients have included:
Our work on these facilities has involved the normal range of architectural acoustics, noise and vibration control. On many projects we have also provided input on structural dynamics issues.
Colin Gordon Associates has significant experience in the unique design requirements for vibration and noise control in LCD TFT fabs, including several recent projects with Generation 5 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:
CGA has worked on many advanced research facilities including those specializing in nanotechnology. Our work on these facilities has involved structural dynamics, interpretation of tools specifications, architectural acoustics, noise and vibration control.
Projects have included design and problem solving work for the following:
Our work on educational facilities has involved the following organizations:
We have provided services directly or indirectly to a wide range of companies that manufacture specialized instruments and tools. These include:
