Ultratech, Inc. Introduces Ultratech Cambridge Nanotech Savannah G2 Atomic Layer Deposition System
Jan 6 15
Ultratech, Inc. introduced the Ultratech Cambridge NanoTech Savannah G2 atomic layer deposition (ALD) system. Since its introduction in 2004, the Savannah product line has become the commercial ALD system used for research and development activities. The Savannah G2 platform incorporates a wide range of advanced field-upgradable options intended to aid serious researchers in expanding their portfolio of available ALD films, as well as allow them to characterize the films in real time. Among the Savannah G2's array of options, a unique low vapor precursor delivery system has been developed to enable the growth of novel materials including single- and multi-component films from Perovskite, Yttrium, Lithium, and the rare earth families. Additional options such as ellipsometry, Quartz Crystal Microbalance (QCM), and mass spectrometry allow for the simultaneous growth of ALD films and the real-time characterization of the deposition process, all of which are indispensible capabilities for process development and optimization activities.

Ultratech Introduces Superfast 4G Low-Cost In-Line Inspection System for Patterned Wafers
Nov 17 14
Ultratech, Inc. introduced the Superfast 4G high-volume, in-line, 3D topography inspection system. Ultratech's new 4G system builds on the field-tested capability of the Superfast 3G, providing the industry's highest-productivity and lowest-cost solution compared to competing systems. The Superfast 4G system's patented coherent gradient sensing (CGS) technology provides a high degree of flexibility that enables Ultratech customers to use a single type of wafer inspection tool to measure the front side of patterned wafers across the entire fab line at the lowest cost. Ultratech plans to begin shipping the Superfast 4G systems in the first quarter of 2015. The Superfast 4G leads the industry: Direct, front-side 3D topography measurement for patterned wafers. Highest throughput for in-line, patterned wafer system--125 wph. Lowest cost-of-ownership--3x to 5x lower compared to competing systems. Flexibility to measure front side of patterned wafers anywhere in the production line, (front-, middle- and back-end-of-line). Open-architecture inspection platform can improve lithography performance. Small wafer-shaped inspection footprint significantly reduces customer production costs compared to competing systems.
