Suprema photoresist strip systemMattson Technology has gained an order for its Suprema photoresist strip system from a global semiconductor manufacturer for high-k and metal gate (HKMG) strip application development for 32nm logic devices. Mattson said that it had already shipped the tool and that the customer is expected to be in pilot production in the latter half of 2009.

"Advanced logic devices require new materials such as high-k film to enhance the transistor performance; and process tools must be flexible and robust enough to handle these materials and deliver 'on-wafer' results without any compromise,” commented Neal Holmlund, Sr. Vice President and General Manager of Mattson Technology's Surface Cleaning Group. “Mattson was able to meet our customer's stringent process requirements in a short period of development time.  In choosing the Suprema system, the customer cited the extremely high reliability and throughput of the product, coupled with enabling process performance, maturity and extendibility to future technology nodes."
