Trumpf Chooses ClassOne Solstice System
System allows precise and consistent control of stress within deposited films
Semiconductor equipment manufacturer ClassOneTechnology has announced the sale of its Solstice S8 plating system to semiconductor laser manufacturer, Trumpf Photonics. The new Solstice S8 will be installed at the Trumpf facility in Cranbury, New Jersey, where it will be used for high-precision gold plating and metal lift-off.
"For these particular Trumpf applications, process uniformity was extremely important, and fortunately the Solstice is very strong in that department," said Kevin Witt, ClassOne's chief technology officer. "The unique elegance of the Solstice system design allows users to control processes very precisely and consistently. In this case, we needed to be able to control the stress within the deposited films, and we were able to demonstrate that quite effectively."
"We were also able to prove ClassOne's expertise and support by helping Trumpf develop their target processes," said Win Carpenter, ClassOne's VP of global sales. "Our process engineers showed that they really understood what Trumpf was shooting for - and how to achieve it. Customers appreciate that we are very transparent with them as we work toward their process objectives. Of course, the high performance-to-price ratio of the Solstice helped make this an even easier purchase decision."
The Solstice S8 is a fully-automated eight-chamber electroplating tool specifically designed for â‰¤200mm substrates, either transparent or opaque. It can perform a range of electroplating and related processes (high pressure metal lift-off, resist strip, etch and so on) using various metals and alloys. The product family also includes the Solstice LT for process development and the four-chamber Solstice S4 for mid-range production.
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.
