YES Acquires Kanthal’s Semiconductor Equipment Business

News

Kanthal LPCVD technology opens new deposition opportunities in optical, power and microLED applications

YES (Yield Engineering Systems), a manufacturer of process equipment for semiconductor packaging, life sciences and 'More-than-Moore' applications, has purchased the semiconductor equipment business of Swedish heating technology provider Kanthal.

Under the terms of the agreement, which was signed on October 6th, YES will take ownership of Kanthal's semiconductor-related capital equipment portfolio, system-related upgrades, and service needs. The acquisition will add Kanthal's high-temperature (>800°C) furnace technology as well as Low Pressure Chemical Vapour Deposition (LPCVD) processes to YES's growing capabilities in the thermal processing area.

“We aim to be the semiconductor industry's provider of choice for surface modification, material enhancement, and high-quality deposition,” said Rezwan Lateef, president of YES. “With this acquisition of equipment and technical expertise from a leader in industrial heating, we look forward to supporting our global customer base with new high-temperature annealing and bonding systems that leverage Kanthal heating equipment.

"In addition, we feel that the Kanthal LPCVD technology has potential to open exciting deposition opportunities for YES beyond our current monolayer coating systems, particularly in the areas of optical, power and microLED.”
