"Tegal is committed to ongoing support and continuous improvement of our large installed base of etch equipment in Japan," said Paul Werbaneth, General Manager of Tegal Japan, Inc. "We will provide state-of-the-art platform control while maintaining the high volume process capability already qualified by this important customer."
“We will provide state-of-the-art platform control while maintaining the high volume process capability already qualified by this important customer.”
Tegal was recently ranked, for the fourth straight year, as the No. 1 semiconductor equipment supplier by the VLSI Research Inc 10 BEST Survey, an annual survey ranking customer satisfaction. The customer-based honor clearly reflects Tegal's unwavering focus on customer success, not just customer service.
Tegal's 900 Series systems are widely recognized for their low cost of ownership and high throughput. More than 1,500 of the 900 Series systems have been installed worldwide and are supported by Tegal's extensive worldwide field process and service organization. 900 Series systems deliver highly reliable, repeatable results in etching a variety of films used to manufacture MEMS, silicon ICs, telecommunications and optoelectronics devices, flat panel displays and thin film magnetic heads.
The 901ACS system is designed around a production-proven wafer transport design that can accommodate 75 mm to 150 mm round silicon, GaAs, InP, and dielectric material substrates. The transport can also be configured to accommodate rectangular substrates up to 150 mm on a side. Typical applications for the 901ACS include nitride etch, photoresist descum, polyimide and BCB etches, zero layer etch, backside etch, isotropic oxide etch, non-critical polysilicon etch and titanium/tantalum alloy etch. For information on the 901ACS including field upgrades to existing 901e systems, please contact your local Tegal representative or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
