Abstract:
In a move that underscores growing demand for its wet deposition process in Asia, Alchimer S.A. has signed an agreement with Kromax International Corp., a Taiwanese company that represents leading semiconductor and flat-panel equipment manufacturers and material suppliers in the Asian market.

Alchimer Continues Asian Expansion Through Agreement with Kromax in Taiwan: Kromax to Represent Alchimer’s Total TSV Solution as Wet Deposition Process Gains Customers in Key IC

Massy, France | Posted on March 31st, 2011

Kromax will represent Alchimer's total through-silicon via (TSV) solution in Taiwan, including its Electrografting (eG) wet deposition technology. Electrografting is Alchimer's breakthrough electrochemical process that enables the growth of extremely high-quality nanometric films for TSVs, semiconductor interconnects, MEMS and other electronic applications.

"This is further recognition in one of the most important chip-producing markets that Alchimer's mature technology is recognized as a cost-effective solution for high aspect ratio TSVs, and we are pleased to announce this expansion of sales and service for our Taiwanese customers," said Steve Lerner, Alchimer CEO. "Kromax's history of operations in Taiwan and the rest of Asia, its strong relationships with Alchimer's customers, and its excellentreputation for bringing breakthrough technologies to the market make it a very good fit for Alchimer."

"Kromax is pleased to add Alchimer to our portfolio of leading tool and materials companies serving the IC and flat-panel markets," said Kell Hwang, chairman of Kromax. "The company's wet-deposition process has been solidly demonstrated as a leading solution for cost-effective, conformal high-aspect ratio TSVs."

Alchimer's expansion in Taiwan follows closely on the revenue success it has had in both South Korea and Japan, where it also has agreements with regional firms.

About Alchimer S.A.
Alchimer develops and markets innovative chemical formulations, processes and IP for the deposition of nanometric films used in a variety of microelectronic and MEMS applications, includingwafer-level interconnects and TSVs (through-silicon vias) for 3D packaging. The company’s breakthrough technology, Electrografting (eG™), is anelectrochemical-based process that enables the growth of very thin coatings, of various types, on both conducting and semiconducting surfaces. Alchimer’s potential was initially recognized by the Strategic Industrial Innovation Programme of OSEO, which supports state-of-the-art technologies with a high likelihood of commercialization, and the company was spun off from the Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique (CEA) in 2001. Based in Massy, France, it won the First National Award for the Creation of High Tech Companies from the French Minister of Research and Industry and is a Red Herring Top 100 European Company.
