Picosun and IME to create high performance memory
Picosun Group, provider of the AGILE ALD (Atomic Layer Deposition) thin film coating solutions for global industries, and A*STAR’s Institute of Microelectronics (IME), Singapore, have strengthened their collaboration in next generation high performance memory technologies.
Biocompatible ALD materials for medical applications
Picosun has expanded its selection of biocompatible ALD materials to be used in medical applications. HfO2, SiO2, ZrO2, Nb2O5, Ta2O5, AlN and TiN ALD films manufactured by Picosun have been tested and validated by an independent third party to be non-cytotoxic and safe to human tissues in, for example, implant applications.
Strengthening presence in the healthcare industries
Global provider of AGILE ALD (Atomic Layer Deposition) thin film coating solutions, Picosun Group, has announced that it is continuing its presence in healthcare industries by supplying ALD technology to produce bioactive coatings on surgical implants at a major manufacturer.
Micro-LEDs achieve superior brightness with ALD technology
Supplier of AGILE ALD (Atomic Layer Deposition) thin film coating solutions, Picosun, has reported good results in boosting micro-LED performance using ALD passivation. Micro-LEDs are a strong challenger to existing display technologies such as LCDs (liquid crystal displays), OLEDs (organic light-emitting diodes) or conventional LEDs (light-emitting diodes).
ALD encapsulation prevents electronics degradation
Supplier of ALD (Atomic Layer Deposition) thin film coating solutions, Picosun Group, has reported unprecedented results in high reliability electronics protection with ALD. Hermetic encapsulation by ALD nanolaminates developed by Picosun has been proven to block tin whisker formation on PCB (printed circuit board) assemblies completely.
ALD equipment users in next generation 3D capacitors
SiSTEM Technology says that the Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) equipment it supplies from Picosun is being used in the fast, cost-efficient mass production of next generation 3D capacitors, as part of an EU development programme. These devices will be suitable for use, for example, in pacemakers and other implantable medical devices, electric cars, and highly efficient memories for computers and mobile devices.
Picosun’s high performance 300-mm ALD cluster tool enters new generation memory market
Picosun reports that its PICOPLATFORM 300 ALD cluster tool has been selected by a key customer in Asia for new memory applications. The 300 mm cluster design is based on the company’s long-term top product, the fully automated, multifunctional PICOPLATFORM ALD deposition unit for parallel, simultaneous execution of several different processes for high-k and metal/metal nitride films.
