March Plasma Systems, a subsidiary of Nordson Corporation (NASDAQ: NDSN) announced today it has received a firm purchase order for a FlexTRAK-WR wafer processing system from a major semiconductor manufacturing company.
The system is scheduled to be delivered the first half of 2007, where it will be installed for the purpose of high-volume semiconductor device manufacturing on 200 mm wafers.
"The FlexTRAK-WR system continues to gain acceptance by major semiconductor customers for photoresist descum, wafer cleaning, etching and other wafer applications," said James Getty, Director of Applications at March Plasma Systems.
"The FlexTRAK-WR system provides advanced processing capabilities at an attractive price point with a low cost of ownership," Mr. Getty continued. "Because it demonstrates excellent on-wafer performance combined with high throughput, it is an appealing choice for high-volume semiconductor device manufacturers."
The FlexTRAK-WR "200" system is for processing wafers up to 200 mm in diameter in open cassettes or SMIF pods. The FlexTRAK-WR "300" system is for wafers up to 300 mm in diameter in FOUP pods. The FlexTRAK-WR system is designed for plasma applications such as photoresist descum, ashing, etching, surface cleaning and contamination removal. The system has a proprietary plasma chamber design and fully integrated wafer handler that provides exceptional on-wafer performance, error-free wafer handling and best-in-class throughput.
