Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing has purchased a reticle haze removal tool, ‘Rhazer’ from Rave LLC. The Singapore based foundry had been evaluating the tool since the beginning of the year. The system will be used in Chartered 300mm facility, Fab 7 and is expected to reduce time and produce cost savings to its photomask clean and control program.
“The foundry wafer fabrication environment is particularly well suited for the Rhazer technology,” commented Barry Hopkins, CEO, Rave LLC. “The Rave team has developed an excellent working relationship and professional respect for the Chartered team and organization.”
