March 30, 2012 — Semiconductor fab equipment supplier SUSS MicroTec has acquired Tamarack Scientific Co. Inc. in a share purchase of $9.34 million, plus an additional variable earn-out component which depends on the development of revenues for the next 3 financial years.

Tamarack makes ultraviolet (UV) projection lithography tools and laser micro-structuring systems for manufacturing 3D semiconductor packages, micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS), and light-emitting diodes (LEDs). Laser processing tools include excimer and solid state; photolithography tools include proximity and projection.

Tamarack products are installed from R&D facilities to high-volume manufacturing plants. The company in based in the US, with an applications lab, cleanroom, and short-run manufacturing support in addition to its capital equipment offering.

The acquired intellectual property (IP) complements SUSS’s exposure technology portfolio with projection lithography.
