German Research Company Orders Veeco Tool
TurboDisc MOCVD system will be used for developing technologies for wireless and broadband communication
Veeco Instruments has announced that IHP Microelectronics, based in Frankfurt, Germany, has selected Veeco's TurboDisc MOCVD system for the development of high-performance, silicon-based microelectronic technologies. IHP is an expert in the fields of silicon-based systems, highest-frequency integrated circuits, and technologies for wireless and broadband communication.
Veeco's TurboDisc platform has been the foundation of the company's compound semiconductor expertise. The proprietary technology is a key enabler forAs/P and GaN applications critical for next-generation communications infrastructure and highly efficient microelectronic devices.
Veeco says that the TurboDisc platform provides production ramping due to faster recipe capabilities up to 50 percent quicker than when using traditional batch tools. In addition, the platform also includes Veeco's IsoFlange and SymmHeat technologies, which provide homogeneous laminar flow and uniform temperature profile across the entire wafer, delivering world-class uniformity and repeatability.
“We are honoured to work with IHP, a well-respected institute and a driving force of innovation and leadership in the German and European microelectronic and communication space,” commented Ajit Paranjpe, Veeco's chief technology officer. “Their selection of our TurboDisc platform is validation of its exceptional process capabilities and ability to help enable game-changing technologies. We look forward to continuing to support IHP as they continue to innovate and execute on their mission.”
