Innolas receives contract for 450mm system

Krailling, Germany – In the semiconductor industry, the 300 mm wafer has become the industry standard. The continuous pressure on prices requires a consequent price reduction. This can be accomplished by increases in productivity and chip yield. To achieve this, the chip-industry has developed wafers with a diameter of 450 mm.

In comparison to the 200 mm and 300 mm sizes, it should be possible to obtain an increase of up to 80 percent of microcircuit elements per wafer using 450 mm sizes. At the same time, a reduction in cost per chip is expected. In order to achieve this target a major research effort has to be made – not only in wafer production, but also in fabrication, handling and marking systems.

Innolas Semiconductor GmbH, a technology leader in the wafer sorting and laser marking system market, has received the first contract for a 450 mm system. For this application, high-quality processing methods will be further developed and fine-tuned, using Edge-Grip and the newest handling technology, which have already been proven on the smaller wafers. The system will be delivered in the spring of 2012.
