Abstract:
OBDUCAT, leading manufacturer of lithography solutions based on nanoimprint lithography (NIL), launches 2nd generation SINDRE® with industry-leading productivity. With the improved performance it will represent the most cost effective NIL production solution on the market. The system is based on Obducat's patented SoftPress®, IPS® - and STU® technologies.

Obducat has launched a new generation of SINDRE® Nano Imprint production system

Lund, Sweden | Posted on April 11th, 2014

The fully automated SINDRE system, which enables throughputs of up to 60 wafers per hour, provides state-of-the-art performance combined with industry-leading Cost of Ownership (CoO). The new SINDRE integrates the latest advances in manufacturing technology which enables high throughput, high repeatability at a defectivity level which surpass industry requirements. The first system has already been delivered and passed customer final approval in January this year and the next system will be delivered in third quarter this year.

The new SINDRE platform is a fully integrated NIL system which includes integrated fabrication of the Intermediate Polymer Stamp (IPS). This is a proven and reliable process which was also integrated in previous generation of SINDRE systems delivered by Obducat during the last five years. Obducat's patented IPS technology covers the use of a transparent flexible stamp in any kind of imprint process. The use of the IPS technology ensures a long life time of the stampers which minimize the stamp related costs per imprint. The unique and patented SoftPress technology, applied in the system, ensures the necessary level of conformity between the stamp and substrate vital for establishing high imprint uniformity. This enables a large process window for downstream processes leading to a high yield and low CoO. All this has been integrated into a very compact system having a small footprint.

The new SINDRE system also offers a wide flexibility which includes the possibility to use different resists and IPS materials to support customization of the imprint process. Additionally the system can run both UV- as well as thermal based NIL processes, giving the capability to imprint structure sizes ranging from 20nm and upwards, on substrate sizes up to 200 mm in diameter.
"The versatility and superior performance of our patented key technologies has been extended further to safeguard Obducat's continued technological leadership in the NIL industry" says Babak Heidari, CTO of Obducat.

Example of components which are ideally produced with this system are optical, photonic, LEDs, fluidic and other biomedical components.

"Obducat again confirms its leading position with this launch. With more than 130 NIL systems delivered during the last decade and several of these being used for manufacturing purposes in LEDs, photonics and biomedical applications, we are breaking new barriers in terms of performance and cost efficiency" says Patrik Lundström, CEO of Obducat.
