NEXX Systems acquires All Wet Technologies

April 23, 2003 – Wilmington, MA – NEXX Systems has completed the acquisition of All Wet Technologies Inc. (AWT). AWT has developed electro-deposition technology for metal and photoresist. Arthur Keigler, president of AWT, joins NEXX Systems as VP of technology and board member.

“The AWT product line enhances the NEXX Systems’ product offering, enabling NEXX to provide more complete solutions to their packaging challenges,” stated Richard Post, CEO of NEXX Systems.

With the acquisition, NEXX Systems will offer two new product lines (in
addition to its Nimbus PVD and Cirrus CVD systems):

– The Stratus systems for electro-deposition applications in gold and solder bumping, redistribution, and MEMS. The Stratus integrates the wafer quality and process advantages of vertical orientation with the economic advantages of parallel processing, NEXX said.
– The Cirrostratus systems for photoresist electro-deposition targeted at wafer bumping and MEMS-type thick film processes.
