Home > Press > NEXX Systems to Participate in IMEC's Industrial Affiliation Program on 3D Integration

Abstract:
NEXX Systems, a leading provider of process equipment for advanced wafer-level packaging applications, today announced its participation in IMEC's Industrial Affiliation Program (IIAP) on 3D integration. As a member of this program, NEXX Systems will install a Stratus S300-FX electrodeposition system at IMEC's facility in Leuven, Belgium for joint research and development of the metallization of through silicon vias (TSVs) and micro-bumping. The TSVs and micro-bumps are fabricated with electrodeposition technology and play a key role in 3D integration.
