Mattson Technology Increases Etch Product Line Growth With Shipment to Major Foundry
(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) FREMONT, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/09/13 --
Mattson Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: MTSN), a leading supplier of advanced semiconductor processing equipment, today announced that it has shipped an etch system to a major foundry, the sixth semiconductor manufacturer now using its etch systems. The etch system will support development and production of advanced devices at leading-edge technology nodes at this foundry's R&D facility.
"As the industry moves to lower technology nodes, the increased cost of designing and manufacturing integrated circuits becomes even more of a challenge for our customers," said Rene George, vice president and general manager of the Plasma Products Group. "To stay on the leading-edge of each new chip generation, foundries require the most cost-effective and technologically advanced equipment to achieve the required return on their investments for expanding fab capacities. Mattson Technology's etch tool was selected as a result of our systems' proven track record of achieving optimal process performance for the most advanced technology nodes while delivering industry-leading cost of ownership. We are extending our etch presence in the foundry market with this sixth etch placement, and we look forward to continue providing leading-edge tools to support its production ramp of next-generation chips."
