ULVAC Launches the Gemini Series Custer System; Combining Deposition and Etch Modules' for Manufacturing Advanced Electronics
ULVAC, Inc. (Headquarters: Chigasaki, Kanagawa; President and CEO: Setsuo Iwashita; hereafter referred to as ULVAC) today announced the launch of Gemini Series cluster system combining deposition and etch modules' which enables our customers to equip a variety of different process modules including sputter, etch, CVD and others on the same transfer core. The company has begun selling production systems using this new platform.
Manufacturing of advanced electronics requires a wide variety of process such as deposition and fine pitch patterning combined together. Independent systems are generally used for each process to produce these devices.
ULVAC's new Gemini Series is able to equip a variety of different process modules on the same transfer core reducing spare parts by adopting common parts, and improving usability with a unified operation panel between all modules. This greatly improves efficiency for manufacturing advanced electronics devices.
