UltratechA major foundry based in Asia has become a new customer of Ultratech after placing an order for its LSA100A Laser Spike Anneal (LSA) system. Ultratech now claims that 15 of the top 17 logic manufacturers are using the company's proprietary laser anneal technology. The foundry will use the LSA100A system for 45nm production, according to Ultratech.

"This new customer win and LSA system order further solidify our leading position in the market for microsecond anneal technology," noted Jeff Hebb, Vice President, LSA product marketing. "This order establishes Ultratech's LSA technology in all of the major foundries in Asia. Building on the success of its predecessor the LSA100, the LSA100A provides both an improvement in the technical capabilities for advanced nodes and a significant increase in productivity. The LSA100A reduces the anneal time by over 50 percent and increases throughput by over 30 percent. As we welcome this new customer into the Ultratech fold, we will continue to develop technology advantages that support our customers' advanced technology roadmaps."

The foundry will use the LSA100A system for 45nm production, according to Ultratech.
