Applied Materials, Inc., Tokyo Electron Limited - M&A Call

To discuss the termination of Business Combination Agreement between Applied Materials, Inc. and Tokyo Electron Limited

Applied Materials Announces the Applied Centura Tetra Z Photomask Etch System

Applied Materials announced the Applied Centura Tetra Z Photomask Etch system for etching next-generation optical lithographic photomasksneeded by the industry to continue multiple patterning scaling to the 10nm node and beyond. The new tool extends the capabilities of Applied's Tetra platform, delivering angstrom-level photomask accuracy for critical dimension (CD) parameters required to meet stringent patterning specifications for future logic and memory devices. Applied developed the Tetra Z tool for advanced chrome, MoSi, hard mask and quartz (fused silica) etch applications used to fabricate advanced binary and phase-shift masks (PSMs). Offering continuous technical innovations and unprecedented CD performance, the system extends immersion lithography for quadruple patterning and cutting-edge resolution enhancement techniques. Vital capabilities ensuring pattern transfer fidelity include uniform, linear precision etching across all feature sizes and pattern densities with virtually zero defectivity. Excellent CD performance combined with high etch selectivity enable the use of thinner resist films for achieving smaller photomask CD patterns on critical device layers. Controllable CD bias capability expands the system's flexibility to meet customer specific requirements. Unique quartz etch depth control ensures precision phase angle and aids integrated circuit scaling by providing customers the capability to use alternating aperture PSMs and chromeless phase lithography. These key advances derive from a variety of system improvements in chamber design, plasma stability, ion and radical control, flow and pressure control, and real-time process monitoring and control.

Applied Materials Receives Order for Two Transmission-Class Superconducting Fault Current Limiters

Glow Energy Public Company Limited (Glow) has placed an order with Applied Materials for two superconducting fault current limiters (SCFCL). Glow intends to commission the SCFCLs in its utility grid located in the Map Ta Phut Industrial Estate. Glow anticipates that the fault current protection provided by the SCFCLs will enable Glow to increase generation and supply more power at higher quality to its customers. Representing the first use of SCFCLs in Thailand, these systems support adding capacity to address growing energy demand by offering a robust approach to reducing fault currents while minimizing voltage dips on distribution and transmission utility networks. A fault current is an unintended, excessive current flowing through an electrical system that can damage power equipment and disrupt electricity supply. Higher fault levels typically increase as power capacity grows and grid meshing increases. SCFCL technology is designed to reduce the first peak of a fault current on a power line to limit the destructive forces on the power system and improve equipment reliability. Glow has ordered two 115KV SCFCL systems for its high-voltage transmission network.
