Abstract:
SVTC Technologies, the premier innovation partner for accelerating nanotechnology development and commercialization, announced today that it is partnering with Amerimade Technology and Shanghai Sinyang Semiconductor Materials to advance process development and production readiness for electroplating applications. This unique combination of engineering expertise, production knowhow, chemistry products and electroplating equipment provides customers access to advanced electroplating development capabilities supporting through-silicon via (TSV) technology and continues an ongoing SVTC strategy to create an ecosystem of partners that enables comprehensive value-added solutions for customers.

SVTC, Amerimade Technology and Shanghai Sinyang Semiconductor Materials Form Partnership to Expand Advanced Electroplating Process Capabilities: Innovative partnership provides SVTC customers access to advanced electroplating processes in the area of through-silicon via (TSV)

San Jose, CA | Posted on October 19th, 2011

Similar to signal vias used in printed circuit boards, TSVs allow for signals to pass through the silicon substrate a major advantage over traditional packaging and chip-to-chip interconnect schemes. TSVs enable advanced packaging technologies such as 3D IC integration where multiple chips can be stacked on top of each other for improved packaging density and improved signal performance. TSV technology is also critical for next-generation microelectromechanical systems (MEMS).

Given the advanced nature of TSV technology, many manufacturers do not have the process expertise nor tool sets required to develop the electroplated film solutions required for leading-edge devices and packaging. This partnership delivers over 95,000 square feet of state-of-the-art cleanroom, staffed 24/7, with a highly versed engineering team provided by SVTC, powered by electroplating tool sets and knowhow from Amerimade and chemical solutions from Shanghai Sinyang. In addition to providing manufacturers access to these vital technologies, this partnership focuses on developing new electroplating processes.

"SVTC is committed to providing our customers with the most innovative nanotechnology development and commercialization services for next-generation devices," said Wilbur Catabay, Vice President Technology Solutions for SVTC Technologies. "Working with both Shanghai Sinyang and Amerimade Technology will help our customers accelerate process development and demonstrate production readiness for 3D IC and MEMS technology."

The genesis of the partnership arose from each partner's long-standing familiarity with the other's experience, capability, competence and success in their respective business areas. Customers can expect to receive a broad range of solutions from process demonstrations to a robust commercialization process that can take an idea, demonstrate its value as a proof of concept, and then drive the capability of its processes and integration to production readiness.

"Our technology partnership with SVTC represents an outstanding combination of Amerimade's many years of success with the engineering and manufacturing of electroplating equipment for the semiconductor, MEMS, data storage and life science markets, with SVTC's compelling concept-to-commercialization business model and Shanghai Sinyang's chemical expertise," said Mark Blaze, VP of Customer Operations from Amerimade Technology. "We believe the partnership will have immediate and positive impact on our customers' ability to rapidly and successfully develop and adopt electroplating solutions for their products."

SVTC Technologies provides a complete range of solutions through in-house capabilities and a network of service and production partners. Based on years of hands-on, collaborative experience, SVTC continues to assemble an ecosystem of valued partners that provides a full complement of specialized services and enables a broad array of technology development capabilities.
