Plasma-Therm at productronica 2023
At productronica 2023, Abdul Lateef, CEO at Plasma-Therm, talks to Electronic Specifier’s Mick Elliott about the background of Plasma-Therm and the products it takes to market.
Plasma-Therm has been innovating plasma processing technologies since 1974.
It designs and builds easy-to-use wafer processing platforms for standard and advanced processes used in microelectronics manufacturing and R&D applications. Its platforms are the centrepiece of its application solutions and cover a wide variety of process steps including etch, deposition, material modification, and die singulation. In addition, the platforms are configurable to help you get the equipment and features you need.
The company has grown organically through acquisitions and strategic partnerships so it could offer broader solutions. Today, it is a solid, reliable, and trusted partner.
Most recently, Plasma-Therm acquired Thin Film Equipment (TFE). “The acquisition of TFE reinforces Plasma-Therm’s expanding footprint in Europe, a pivotal component of our long-term strategic growth initiative,” stated Lateef. “It also helps to significantly expand Plasma-Therm’s portfolio in the power device market with TFE’s suite of PVD tools tailored to meet the requirements of MEMS, Power, RFID, and other semiconductor applications.”
TFE’s PVD technologies highly complement Plasma-Therm’s existing etch and deposition products and process solutions, enhancing its ability to meet a wider spectrum of semiconductor manufacturing and R&D market demands. The added value of TFE’s workforce expertise in PVD technology and power device market requirements further strengthens Plasma-Therm’s renowned customer service and support teams.
