Maskless Lithography Comes Out of Stealth Mode with Direct Write Lithography System For High-Volume PCB Production

San Jose, CA | Posted on April 7th, 2010

Maskless Lithography, Inc., a Silicon Valley startup led by a group of industry veterans, today came out of stealth mode with a brand new direct-write digital imaging technology that will raise the bar in printed circuit board (PCB) production. The new MLI-2027 direct-write lithography system is the industry's first to combine high throughput and yield with unparalleled accuracy using standard "Non-LDI" resists. Maskless also announced today that Sanmina-SCI Corporation has accepted the first production tool after completing beta testing, validation and qualification of the Maskless MLI-2027 equipment at their San Jose, CA facility.

"The acceptance of this tool marks five years of development coming to fruition," stated Dr. Dan Meisburger, founder and CTO of Maskless Lithography. "In 2005, based upon our founding partners' experience in both lithography and metrology, we identified an opportunity to develop a lithography system that could deliver unrivalled value to the PCB market. We believe we have exceeded that initial vision and are now ready to share this tried and tested capability."

The MLI-2027 is a highly efficient, high throughput PCB production system that can increase the profitability of PCB manufacturers by offering a more cost effective lithography alternative that provides greater yield and ROI compared to other systems on the market. Based on its patented Gray Level Imaging™ (GLI) technology, the MLI-2027 offers unprecedented high printing speed on conventional dry film resists with real-time distortion correction.

"We are really impressed with Maskless' unique direct-write lithography tool," commented Mike Keri, Vice President of Operations for Sanmina-SCI. "The MLI-2027 has allowed us to meet highly challenging designs using conventional dry film resists at high yields and high throughput rates."
