Almere, the Netherlands – April 20, 2020 – Levitech announces the shipment of the latest Levitor system as part of a purchase order for a total of three systems. The Chinese foundry customer received the other two systems over the last 6 months. The Levitor systems will be used in Rapid Thermal Processing (RTP) of opto-electronic applications in high volume manufacturing.
“The Levitor has been specifically designed to achieve near-perfect RTP with emissivity independence resulting in device properties that outperform competition. As the buildup of many semiconductor applications becomes more mixed and varied in layering and materials, the Levitor’s unique processing innovation becomes our key selling point. Also the high throughput and reliability of our Levitor system moved the equipment selection in our favor,” commented Jaap Beijersbergen, CEO of Levitech, “These main differentiators and the fact that the Levitor shows good performance at several research institutes and high-volume manufacturing customers in Europe and Asia were key reasons for the selection of the Levitor.”
“The Levitor penetrated the expanding Chinese semiconductor market and is contributing to their success-story”, Jaap Beijersbergen continues, “The Levitor has been proven to be a reliable RTP system that can be used in high-volume manufacturing for extensive periods of time.” The Levitor system is available in configurations for both 200mm and 300mm wafer processing.
