Trymax Wins Order From Eindhoven University Of Technology
NEO 200A series selected to perform resist stripping, de-scum and surface cleaning on InP wafers
Trymax Semiconductor Equipment BV (Trymax), a Netherlands-based plasma solutions, has announced it has received an order from NanoLab@TU/e of Eindhoven University of Technology. The NEO 200A series from Trymax with microwave downstream plasma technology was selected to perform resist stripping, de-scum and surface cleaning on InP wafers. This order illustrates the competitiveness of the single chamber and fully automated solution of Trymax for the photonics market.
“European research organisations and equipment companies are at the forefront of the global photonics industry” commented Carlos Lee, director general of European Photonics Industry Consortium (EPIC). “Having a company such as Trymax collaborating with Eindhoven University of Technology goes in the right direction to build an efficient manufacturing infrastructure”.
Eindhoven University of Technology selected Trymax after running technical demonstrations on InP substrate and other compound semiconductor substrates. The results achieved on the NEO 200A platform in term of ash rate, non-uniformity and handling of critical substrate materials of different sizes outperformed competing solutions.
“Beyond silicon, Trymax has a long experience and unique capabilities in handling various substrates materials such as SiC, GaN, GaAs, LiNbO3, LiTaO3, glass, and eWLB” stated Leo Meijer, CEO of Trymax.
“Having a recognised university such as Eindhoven University of Technology as a customer is an honor. Trymax, as a Dutch headquartered company, is proud to have the researchers and students from Eindhoven University of Technology developing the photonic solutions of the future with our system”.
“Eindhoven University of Technology has chosen the Trymax NEO 200A because of the robustness of the tool, the expertise of the Trymax team and the short distance to the lab, all which is superior to what we found elsewhere on the market” mentioned Huub Ambrosius, Managing Director of NanoLab@TU/e.
The NEO 200A system will be installed at Eindhoven University of Technology in Q3 2019.
