Applied Materials Announces Cash Dividend Payable on June 11, 2015

Applied Materials, Inc. announced that its Board of Directors has approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.10 per share payable on the company's common stock. The dividend is payable on June 11, 2015 to stockholders of record as of May 21, 2015.

Applied Materials Unveils Breakthrough E-Beam Metrology Tool for FinFET Transistors and 3D NAND Devices

Applied Materials, Inc. announced the industry's first in-line 3D CD SEM metrology tool for solving the challenges of measuring the high aspect ratio and complex features of 3D NAND and FinFET devices. The new Applied VeritySEM(R) 5i system offers high-resolution imaging and backscattered electron (BSE) technology that enable exceptional CD control in-line. Using the VeritySEM 5i system can speed up chipmakers' process development and production ramp, and improve device performance and yield in high-volume production. Innovations in metrology precision are needed to improve device performance, reduce variability and boost yields of increasingly intricate high-performance, high-density 3D devices. An advanced high-resolution SEM column, tilted beam and BSE imaging give the VeritySEM 5i system its unique 3D metrology capability to measure and monitor the most vital and challenging FinFET and 3D NAND structures in-line. Specifically, BSE imaging for via-in-trench bottom CD enables chipmakers to ensure connectivity between underlying and overlaying metal layers. For controlling FinFET sidewall, as well as gate and fin height, where the smallest variation impacts device performance and yield, the VeritySEM 5i tool's tilt-beam provides exact, repeatable in-line measurements. High-resolution BSE imaging enables continued vertical scaling through enhanced sensitivity for measuring the asymmetrical sidewall and bottom CDs of 3D NAND devices with very high aspect ratios reaching up to 60:1 and beyond.
