Photronics, Inc. manufactures photomasks, which are high precision photographic quartz plates containing microscopic images of electronic circuits. The company’s photomasks are a key element in the manufacture of semiconductors and flat panel displays (FPDs), and are used as masters to transfer circuit patterns onto semiconductor wafers and flat panel substrates during the fabrication of integrated circuits (ICs) and various FPDs, and to a lesser extent, other types of electrical and optical components. The company supports customers across the spectrum of IC production and FPD technologies by manufacturing photomasks using electron beam or optical (laser-based) systems. The company owns various mature electron beam and laser-based systems. The company sells all of its photomasks to semiconductor designers, manufacturers, and foundries, as well as to other electronics manufacturers.
