Tegal Receives Advanced Etch System Order From SVTC Technologies for Non-Volatile Memory Development

PETALUMA, CA | Posted on June 12th, 2008

Tegal Corporation (NASDAQ:TGAL), a leading designer and manufacturer of plasma etch and deposition systems used in the production of integrated circuits, MEMS, and nanotechnology devices, announced today that the Company received an order for a Tegal 6500 HRe-™ plasma etch tool from SVTC Technologies, San Jose, California. The Tegal system will ship this quarter, and will be installed in SVTC's 200mm development foundry in San Jose.

SVTC, which operates the leading process development foundry in the U.S., serves the rapidly growing novel memory and transistor market, along with the MEMS/MOEMS, photovoltaics, biotechnology, image sensors and high-voltage markets. Tegal also announced, as part of the plasma etch equipment order, that Tegal and SVTC are working together on process recipe development for these applications.

According to Wilbur Catabay, Vice President of Technology, SVTC, "Tegal's production-proven 6500 platform was the obvious choice for our customers with advanced memory development programs. With the Tegal tool, we can offer even more significant time-to-market advantages for the specialized materials, processes, and integration requirements of advanced memory device development and productization. In addition, the 6500 platform will be important for other customers who need advanced plasma etch capabilities. We see Tegal as our preferred strategic etch supplier for these important applications."

"Tegal is pleased to have our 6500 Series system added to the impressive 8-inch processing tool set SVTC has already assembled," said Vahan Tchakerian, Vice President, Global Sales and Field Operations, Tegal Corporation. "The Tegal 6500 will support SVTC's companies needing specialized metal film etch, including but not limited to applications in non-volatile memory. We also expect to have a good collaboration with SVTC on process development for leading-edge applications in the advanced memory space, along with the other etch markets that SVTC serves."

The Tegal 6500 system is a high-density plasma etch tool featuring the unique HRe-™ capacitively coupled plasma etch reactor, and Tegal's patented dual-frequency RF power technology and magnetic plasma confinement. Together with its on-board photoresist strip module and spin-rinse-dry station, the Tegal system is a critical enabler for etching the metal electrodes and storage cell materials used in advanced memory fabrication, as well as other ferroelectric, magnetic, high-K dielectric, compound semiconductor, and interconnect materials found in the MEMS/MOEMS, photovoltaic, bio-tech and hi-voltage markets.
