Announcement highlights the sale and installation of the NXQ8012 for large-area substrate handling and lithographic processing
Morgan Hill, Calif. — Neutronix-Quintel, Inc. (NXQ), a leading provider of production photolithography equipment, today announced the sale and installation of our ultra-compact 300mm mask aligner, the NXQ8012, configured for handling large-area substrates up to 320mmx320mm. The tool was purchased by a world-renowned optical tool company after viewing and comparing all available mask aligners. The tool was installed and accepted into production in less than three (3) days.
According to Brett Arnold, President of NXQ, “NXQ continues to push-the-envelope in terms of designing and manufacturing state-of-the-art mask aligners capable of handling extremely large substrates, that push imaging capability down to 1.0 micron. The NXQ8012 offers the smallest available footprint combined with a UV-LED exposure source producing polychromatic or monochromatic outputs, and best-in-class overlay performance. When asked the direct question, “How was your experience and how did NXQ perform?”, the client replied that “NXQ gets a score of 9 out of 10 for machine quality, machine performance, and onsite support, and no one will ever receive a score of 10 out of 10 from us”. The NXQ8012 is commercially available and offers unprecedented performance for many applications.”
The NXQ8012 Production Mask Aligner integrates state of the art Robotic Automation and alignment stage design. Equipped with the revolutionary UV-LED exposure source
, the printing performance is superior to that of mercury lamp sources and will last 7-10 years in an HVM environment before any major service is required. The NXQ8012 alignment stage utilizes the latest in linear motion technology so the vision system is not limited by the hardware, allowing for alignment accuracies of less than 0.5um 3 sigma. This accuracy is achieved using our Quadcam Microscope with 5x objectives, delivering an ideal combination of magnification, field-of-view, and depth-of-focus.
NXQ manufactures photolithography and metrology equipment for customers who develop and manufacture a wide range of semiconductor products including MEMS, Wafer Level Packaging (WLP), 3DIC, System in Package (SIP), Compound Semiconductor (CS), Microfluidics, Optoelectronics and Bio Science technologies. NXQ was founded by industry veterans and has been designing and manufacturing mask aligners for over 35 years.
