Advanced Packaging and Solid State Technology Applaud 2008 ACA Winners

(July 22, 2008) NASHUA, NH &#151 On Wednesday, July 16, 2008, the editors and publisher of Solid State Technology (SST) and Advanced Packaging Magazine presented the 2008 ACA Awards, in usual impromptu style on the floor at SEMICON West. This was the sixth straight year attendees of SEMICON West were invited to vote on products they saw at the annual trade show.

Although the award program has traditionally been front-end heavy in new product entries, this year saw a shift in that balance, with three quarters of the products entered were in the final manufacturing space.

Kristine Collins, publisher of both publications, Pete Singer, Editorial Director of both SST and Advanced Packaging and Gail Flower, Editor-in-Chief of Advanced Packaging acknowledged recipients in 3 catagories &#151 Best solution to a problem, most innovative product, and best cost-of-ownership &#151 for both front-end and back-end processes.

In wafer processing, winner for best solution to a problem is Levitronix for its BPS 600 pump. Most innovative product went to Aviza Technology for its Versalis fxP 200/300mm cluster system. And finally, best cost-of-ownership was awarded to NEXX Systems for the Apollo sputter deposition system.

In final manufacturing, the winners are:

best solution to a problem Juki CX-1 advanced placement system

Best cost-of-ownership Kyzen MX2628 aqueous cleaner

Most innovative product BTU International Pyramax 75A furnace

Congratulations to all the winners!
