Semiconductor foundry installs Mattson etch tool

July 25, 2012 – Marketwire — Mattson Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:MTSN), semiconductor processing equipment maker, installed its paradigmE etch system at a major semiconductor foundry.

The tool uses Mattson’s proprietary Faraday-Shielded inductively coupled plasma (ICP) source technology, along with bias capability for anisotropic etching of 300mm wafers. Mattson also offers high-throughput wafer transfer platforms for the etch step. The newest generation, paradigmE Si, debuted at SEMICON West 2011.
