EVG Secures Lithography Order From VTT

News

VTT to use new EVG120 system for research into 'More than Moore' technology including MEMS, optoelectronics, photonics and compound semiconductors.

EV Group (EVG), a supplier of wafer bonding and lithography equipment for MEMS, nanotechnology and semiconductors, has received an order for its EVG120 automated resist processing system from VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT).

An existing customer of EVG's wafer bonding and alignment systems, VTT is among the first to place an order for the newest version of the EVG120 system, which has been enhanced to provide greater reliability, throughput and process performance compared to the previous-generation platform.

VTT will use the new EVG120 system to increase capacity for supporting parallel R&D projects involving new and different coating materials, as well as to enable new research applications in "More than Moore" technology areas such as MEMS, optoelectronics, photonics and compound semiconductors.

"Lithography plays a vital role in the production process for devices that power our digital society," stated Heini Saloniemi, manager, process engineering, at VTT. "After a thorough product evaluation of lithography coating systems, VTT selected the EVG120 in a competitive tender, with coating uniformity and repeatability of coating thickness among the key evaluation criteria. We look forward to receiving the new EVG120 system, which will enhance our lithography process capabilities and allow us to explore new avenues of research."

The EVG120 automated resist processing system is designed to provide reliable and high-quality coating and developing processes in a universal platform. Its versatility and flexibility, as well as its low cost of ownership, makes it an ideal system for research environments where many development projects may be running in parallel, while its high throughput rates enable its use in volume production.

New features on the updated platform include: separation of wet processing modules to enable constant conditions chamber to chamber; integrated chemistry cabinet for resist pumps and bottles (including support for high-viscosity resists); new robot handling system that provides the highest reliability and increased throughput; and optional humidity and temperature control for constant environmental conditions.

"As the leading research institute in Finland, VTT has a strong global network of industry partners throughout the world to transform breakthrough research into new products and services in renewable energy, health care, smart industry and smart city, as well as beyond. EVG is working tirelessly to support our key customers such as VTT in these endeavours," stated Thomas Wagenleitner, product management director at EV Group.



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 Track!

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.
