Surface Technology nets MEMS order

Mar. 30, 2006 — Surface Technology Systems plc (STS) , a maker of plasma processing technologies used in the manufacturing and packaging of advanced electronic devices, announced that it has received an order worth more than $3.4 million from a major manufacturer for MEMS production equipment.

The order includes multiple Pegasus processing chambers for deep silicon micromachining of MEMS for use in consumer end products.

“We see this order as further proof that the major MEMS manufacturers are successfully using or selling their devices for high volume applications such as automotive or consumer products,” said David Haynes, sales and marketing director, in a prepared statement.

The order increases STS’s current order book to more than $21.1 million, all of it for delivery in 2006. The company said it is the highest level STS has had since 2001.
