Intevac, Inc. provides process manufacturing equipment solutions to the hard disk drive and solar photovoltaic industries. Segments The company’s segments include Equipment and Photonics Equipment This segment engages in the design, development and marketing of high-productivity process equipment solutions to the hard disk drive industry. Hard Disk Drive Equipment Market The company designs, manufactures, markets and services complex capital equipment used to deposit thin films and lubricants onto substrates to produce magnetic disks that are used in hard disk drives. Disk and disk drive manufacturers produce magnetic disks in a manufacturing process involving many steps, including plating, annealing, polishing, texturing, sputtering, etching, stripping and lubrication. The company’s systems are used by manufacturers of magnetic media such as Seagate Technology, Western Digital, including its wholly-owned subsidiary, HGST, Fuji Electric, and Showa Denko. Hard Disk Drive Equipment Products Disk Sputtering Systems: The company’s 200 Lean systems with the installed base of 200 Lean systems reaching approximately 150 systems by the end of 2013. The company provides a solution for high-volume manufacturing by providing new etch and associated process modules on the high-productivity 200 Lean Gen II platform. Disk Lubrication Systems Disk lubrication is the manufacturing step that follows deposition of thin films. The Intevac AccuLuber lubricates disks by depositing a thin film of lubricant on the disk while it is under vacuum, thus eliminating the use of solvents, which are environmentally hazardous and expensive to procure, store and dispose. Non-Systems Business The company also provides technology upgrades, spare parts and consumables, installation, maintenance and repair services to the company’s system customers. Solar Market The company designs, manufactures and markets capital equipment for the photovoltaic (PV) solar manufacturing industry. It offers products for wafer-based crystalline silicon (c-Si) solar cell manufacturing processes, the prevailing manufacturing process. Solar Manufacturing Products Solar Cell Processing System The company offers vacuum process manufacturing solutions for c-Si applications. Intevac’s platform is a high-productivity process equipment solution enabling solar cell manufacturing and high cell efficiency. The company has developed three vacuum process application technologies for the platform: for doping by ion implant, for deposition of thin films, such as transparent conductive oxides, and for etching or texturing the surface of a solar cell. Intevac’s products include ENERGi ion implant, integrated physical vapor deposition (PVD), and NanoTexture. The company’s ENERGi ion implantation system is based upon technology developed by Solar Implant Technologies, Inc. (SIT). These systems are designed to run at high throughput and can be integrated into new or existing solar processing lines. ENERGi The ion implant process developed with the company’s ENERGi product enables precision engineering of the dopant elements, such as Phosphorous and Boron to form the emitter in the solar cell. PVD PVD is a process used in multiple steps in the manufacturing of solar cells, such as for electrical contacts, conductor layers, reflective layers, and transparent conductive oxides all of which are critical to the efficiency of solar cells. The Intevac solar PVD system can deposit all of these layers for a variety of c-Si PVD applications as well as thin film solar layers. NanoTexture NanoTexture is a dry etch processing system that enables lower reflectance and therefore higher cell efficiency. Photonics This segment engages in the development and manufacture of high-sensitivity imaging products and vision systems. Its products primarily address the defense market. Photonics Market Photonics develops, manufactures and sells digital-optical products for the capture and display of low-light images and materials identification. These products incorporate high resolution digital image sensors operating in the visible and near
