12 Dec 2013
Mattson Technology, Inc. (Mattson Technology), incorporated in 1988, designs, manufactures, markets, and globally supports semiconductor wafer processing equipment used in the fabrication of integrated circuits (ICs). The Company is a supplier of dry strip and rapid thermal processing (RTP) equipment to the global semiconductor industry. Its customer base includes foundries, memory and logic device manufacturers. The Company’s manufacturing equipment utilizes technology to deliver advanced processing capabilities and productivity for the fabrication of current and next-generation ICs. It has design and manufacturing centers in the United States, Germany and South Korea. Mattson's RTP products feature dual-sided, lamp-based heating technology that provides enhanced process uniformity and repeatability with precise process control for chip manufacturing.
Mattson’s Suprema strip system utilizes a wafer handling architecture to deliver productivity and ownership for manufacturing at the 65 nanometer node and below. The Suprema features its inductively coupled plasma (ICP) technology that offers resist strip capability to edge memory, logic and foundry customers. The Suprema has been installed at many of the global semiconductor companies for production and process development at advanced nodes.
The Company competes with Axcelis Technologies, Novellus Systems and PSK.
Rapid Thermal Processing
The Company's products include the Helios and Helios XP systems for conventional annealing applications and the Millios system for millisecond anneal applications (MSA). Its Helios and Helios XP systems are in volume production at memory customer sites. Millios, which features an arc lamp technology capable of reducing thermal cycle time, is designed to enable its customers to meet advanced gate anneal and activation process requirements through the 32 nanometer technology node and beyond.
The Company competes with Applied Materials, Dainippon Screen Manufacturing and Ultratech.
Etching is the process of removing any deposited materials or layers from the wafer's surface to create the desired pattern on the wafer's surface. Mattson Technology's etch products feature its Faraday-shielded ICP combined with selectable etch bias control to provide process on-wafer performance. Its etch products, the paradigmE and Alpine, are built on its high-throughput platform to provide low cost-of-ownership. It shipped paradigmE for dielectric and silicon etch applications to DRAM and NAND flash fabs.
The Company competes with Applied Materials, Lam Research and Tokyo Electron.
