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.
Silicon semiconductors are used in virtually every electronic device and component, but compound semiconductors are growing globally as well. They are critical in optical applications like light-emitting diodes (LEDs), photodetectors, IR detectors and focal plane arrays. Some, like focal plane arrays, are low-throughput applications. Due to growing consumer demand, many of these applications, such as RF power transistors in cell phones, require high-volume manufacturing.
Common semiconductor applications include contact metallization, under bump metallization, barrier overcoats, and low damage etch.
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.
