Conventional ion implanter
using low acceleration and high concentration process require long process time thus productivity was low and was a bottleneck.
Ernest Godshalk, president and chief operating officer of Varian Semiconductor remarked, "With the introduction of the VIISta 810 HP single wafer medium current ion implanter
, Varian Semiconductor extends its lead in the marketplace by offering the most cost effective and technologically innovative ion implanters
to meet the demanding requirements of the industry's most advanced device geometries.
A reduced energy beam was also a design goal for the new implanter
because it would make it possible to deposit the dopant at smaller depths, thus supporting customers' demands for more densely packed chips.
president and CEO of Ibis Technology Corporation, said, "At this point in time we have no indication from our customers on the timing of their next implanter
orders, or visibility regarding their SIMOX implanter
requirements during 2008.
As stated in the company's January 17th press release, the Company has demonstrated that the i2000 implanter
is capable of increased SOI uniformity, reduced particulate contamination and reduced handling time, resulting in increased throughput.
McKenna explained that Ibis has an excellent relationship with SUMCO, and is, "working as a team with them to advance the quality and productivity of the i2000 implanter
, and to bring SIMOX-SOI wafers to market as the economical solution needed by the world's chip makers.
The Company estimates that it has sufficient cash resources to support operations through June 2007 without the receipt of an additional implanter
order or the completion of additional financing.
This shipment marks a significant milestone by offering the industry's first implanter
to deliver the power of molecular implants for both advanced memory and logic devices.
Nasdaq: ACLS) today reported a new design win for multiple systems of its Optima HD high dose implanter
to a major memory manufacturer located in Asia.
Second Ibis i2000 implanter
passes customer acceptance at SUMCO
Industry's First Single Wafer High Dose Implanter
to Deliver Power of Molecular Implants for Advanced Memory and Logic Devices
Ibis Technology Corporation (Nasdaq NM: IBIS), a leading provider of SIMOX-SOI implantation equipment to the worldwide semiconductor industry, today announced final customer acceptance of the Ibis i2000 oxygen implanter
that was shipped to Sumitomo Mitsubishi Silicon Corporation (SUMCO), the world's second largest silicon wafer manufacturer, in Japan in April 2006.
