German semiconductor maker revamps DUV lithography steppers with Ventex

March 7, 2012 — Refurbished lithography stepper supplier Ventex performed a major deep ultra violet (DUV) lithography stepper refurbishment and installation project for a tier-one chip manufacturer in Germany.

The semiconductor manufacturer’s advanced Canon DUV lithography stepper was refurbished in Ventex’s San Jose, CA refurbishment facility and installed and qualified at the German fab by Ventex’s field service and process engineering teams. Ventex will support the installation from its Coburg, Germany Customer Service Center.

"We are now providing both 365nm and 248nm cost-reduction solutions to this customer," said Jay Bukant, Vice-President of Operations, who added that Europe is a growth market for the company, for both i-line and DUV lithography products and servicing.
