SUSS MicroTec, a global player in the supply of equipment as well as process solutions in the semiconductor industry, has unveiled its new product, the MA100e Gen2 mask aligner. This product is a resultant of a dedicated lithography solution useful in the manufacture of high brightness light emitting diodes (HB-LEDs).
SUSS MicroTec CEO and President, Frank Averdung has mentioned that the company has been clearly taking note of the growing demand for HB-LED technology and that the industry is experiencing a trend of lower ownership costs as a result of higher automation.
LED equipment manufacturers need to support the recent surge in the production of LEDs. This growth is driven by an exploding demand for LED backlighting technology in systems, monitors and televisions. The MA100e Gen2 has been designed as a highly competitive mask aligner solution for meeting the cost sensitive technology requirements in the LED industry. It provides good process scalability and allows new device designs to achieve quick time-to-market.
