A major 300mm memory manufacturing facility in Asia has placed its first follow-on order Mattson Technologies ‘Nexion’ etch system. The Company noted that the customer has accepted the 2 tools currently at its site for testing and performance verification. With this order, Mattson Technology has multiple tools in volume production in the customer's advanced DRAM production line.

“This order is of particular significance and represents an inflection point for the Company. Our entrance into the adjacent growth market of dielectric etch was a strategic decision to expand our technical expertise and market leadership positions in Rapid Thermal Processing (RTP) and Strip,” commented David L. Dutton, President and CEO “Mattson's Nexion system is unique in that it offers our customers improved process performance and leading Cost-of-Ownership (CoO) in this fast growing yet cost sensitive market. In the ultra competitive etch segment, this follow-on order from our long-term customer validates Mattson's etch technology at the leading edge of memory and further positions the Company for growth upon a return to more normalized market conditions."
