UMC) in Hsin-Chu, Taiwan, where it will be used in high-volume foundry and memory production programs using sub-half-micron
Jeffrey Marks, general manager of the CMP product development group, said, "Unlike other CMP systems, which evolved from raw wafer polishing equipment, the Mirra CMP system was designed from the start for sub-half-micron
semiconductor device processing.
35-micron and below etch requirements will dominate this sector as chipmakers standardize on sub-half-micron
The rapid acceptance of Lam's family of next-generation etch and chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process tools positions Lam well for continuing to increase its share of the worldwide process equipment market as chipmakers standardize on sub-half-micron
By the end of the 1980s, it was clear that new plasma source technology was required in both etch and CVD to meet sub-half-micron
technology design rules," explained Voshchenkov.
