SemiGen Acquires Ion Beam Milling
Company buys fhin film processing pioneer
SemiGen has announced the acquisition of Ion Beam Milling of Manchester, New Hampshire, USA. It means the company can offer a full suite of thin film circuits and products along with specialised foundry services to augment its microwave assembly and component solutions.
It will be discussing these and other contract services at the 2018 Electronic Design and Innovation Conference (EDI-CON) on October 17 "“ 18th at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
"Each year, we're looking to increase our capability to be a dedicated, full service microwave manufacturing partner," said Tim Filteau, president of SemiGen. "Thin film is a core requirement of many advanced EW and radar subsystems, so we're proud to be adding it to our suite of in-house solutions."
Ion Beam Milling is a 35-year-old manufacturing company that has pioneered several thin film circuit processing techniques using innovative ion beam milling approaches targeted at the RF and microwave industry.
All Ion Beam Milling fabrication equipment and their entire staff will be moved into SemiGen's 43,000 square foot facility in Londonderry, New Hampshire over the next three months. This modern facility contains multiple clean rooms including a fully renovated wafer fabrication area to support the additional product line.
AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!
AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
