Abstract:
Global Wireless Device Leader Again Selects Tegal Fabrication Tools to Produce High Performance Components For Multimode and Multimedia Handsets

Tegal Receives Repeat Order for 6500 Series Advanced Plasma Etch System from Skyworks Solutions, Inc.

PETALUMA, CA | Posted on November 6th, 2007

Tegal Corporation (Nasdaq:TGAL), a leading designer and manufacturer of plasma etch and deposition systems used in the production of integrated circuits and nanotechnology devices, today announced that it had received a repeat order for a second Tegal 6500 Advanced Etch cluster tool from Skyworks Solutions, Inc. The system will be shipped to Skyworks' fab in Southern California, where it will join the Tegal 6500 system already in place for etching SiN and other critical thin films on GaAs substrates. This repeat 6500 tool order supports Skyworks' business expansion in the multimode and multimedia handset market, where Skyworks supports many of today's leading handset manufacturers including LG, Motorola, Nokia, Samsung, and Sony Ericsson.

"Skyworks' selection of the Tegal 6500 system for this repeat etch tool order is evidence of the high degree of confidence Skyworks has in Tegal's technical capabilities and plasma etch process results," said Scott Brown, Vice President, North American Sales, of Tegal Corporation. "It also demonstrates Tegal's strong ongoing commitment to the compound semiconductor fabrication market for both plasma etch and for PVD applications, and Tegal's strong commitment to our innovative customers, like Skyworks Solutions, in the compound semiconductor space."

The Tegal 6500 etch system is a state-of the-art, high-vacuum cluster tool used in production fabs to etch a variety of thin films in an extremely clean process environment. Tegal 6500 Series tools are widely used in compound semiconductor, opto-electronic, non-volatile memory, and analog and power device fabrication, and in the fabrication of MEMS devices. The 6500 system has an easy-to-use GUI, SECS/GEM communication, and flexible wafer shape and size handling capabilities that makes it ideal for production applications on a variety of wafer substrates. Optional integrated plasma strip and rinse chambers, electro-static chucks with a wide temperature range, plasma emission diode array end-point detection, and active wafer temperature monitoring and control, are available to facilitate the etching of the many different dielectric and conductive films used in microelectronic device production.
