Levitech is a global player in semiconductor production solutions for the IC and solar industry.
The company maintains a strong technological base, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, a competent and qualified workforce, and a highly trained, strategically located support network.
A spin-off of ASM International, Levitech was established (in 2009) around its core product, the Levitor™ system, based on a revolutionary patented technology, and used in the semiconductor industry for Rapid Thermal Processing (RTP).
Levitech’s leading-edge RTP equipment is qualified for 200mm and 300mm wafer processing for the semiconductor industry. Together with its state-of-the-art equipment and process development for the solar industry, Levitech’s technology portfolio is strongly positioning the Company for future growth.
The defining feature of the Levitor technology is its ability to utilize high temperature gas to suspend the wafer during processing. Since the wafer has no contact with the walls of the chamber, we can say that the gas levitates the wafer.
Thus the names Levitech, Levitor, and Levitrack we derived from the verb to levitate, defined in Wikipedia as: to cause to rise in the air and float as if in defiance of gravity; to be suspended in the air as in defiance of gravity.
