The semiconductor market, a $300B+ industry driven by strong demand for IT, sensors and consumer devices, is extremely competitive with a heavy focus on R&D to make chips smaller, faster and more functional, as well as cost effective for high volume manufacturing. Denton Vacuum supports businesses focused on sensors, MEMS (microelectromechanical systems), and compound semiconductors in this ever-emerging market.
Common semiconductor coating applications include contact coating, gold coating, under bump metallization, DLC (diamond-like carbon), barrier overcoats, and sensors, including piezoelectric and precision alloys. When selecting a material to use for coating, you’ll want to consider the lifespan of the material, the environment that the semiconductor will perform in, the potential damage you’ll want to protect against, material cost and, in some cases, aesthetic appearance.
Denton Vacuum offers high-quality and consistent deposition solutions for all of these semiconductor coating applications. For more detail, select a coating method listed below.
