EV Group's IQ AlignerWafer bonding and lithography equipment supplier EV Group has been tapped for one of its tools by Asahi Kasei E-Materials Corp. EV Group has shipped an IQ Aligner UV nanoimprint lithography (UV-NIL) system to the company, which will use the tool for development of materials for high-resolution wafer-level optics.

Asahi Kasei is a developer of electronics, energy and photosensitive materials and epoxy resins. The company’s general manager, Mr. Shoichi Furukawa, commented on the trade: "We purchased EVG's IQ Aligner to support our research and development efforts because it is the de-facto industry standard for UV-NIL, which is a critical enabler of wafer-level optics. We anticipate that the IQ Aligner, and the close cooperation with EVG's process teams, will significantly contribute to our development of new and unique materials that will help enable our customers' next-generation products."

Paul Lindner, executive technology director for EVG, said: "Asahi Kasei is a recognized leader in advancing materials and chemistry technology, and we are pleased that they have selected our IQ Aligner system to develop the next generation of materials that will be integrated into the advanced optical lens stacks and help fuel the growth of the wafer-level camera market."
