The Purion H ushers in a revolutionary new era of high performing implant
technology, elevating what customers will come to expect from high current
implanters. A few of its many new and innovative features include:

  oNext generation scanned spot beam technology with precision implant angle
    and dose control to enhance device performance and yield.
  oEnabling process control technology to minimize all forms of contaminants
    to ensure absolute beam purity.
  oCommon Purion cross-platform architecture designed to drive manufacturing
    flexibility and lower the total cost of fab operations.

Bill Bintz, executive vice president of product development, engineering and
marketing said, "The Purion H is a modern high current implanter that
incorporates enhanced spot beam technology, and is designed to provide
customers with an unprecedented level of process flexibility to support the
manufacturing challenges of the industry's next generation devices, planar or
three dimensional. Due to its unique design, its enabling process control, and
Purion platform commonality, we expect the Purion H will become the industry
standard in high current, single wafer implant."

The Purion Platform
The Purion platform is redefining implanter technology and performance, with
each product setting a new benchmark in its respective market. The powerful
common platform enables the efficient production of all existing and emerging
implant applications across the medium current, high current and high energy
space. The scanned spot beam architecture used on all Purion products assures
