"In recent years SAIT has emerged as the main technology driver behind the global Samsung organization", says Mr. J. S. Kim, Senior Engineer at SAIT, "In order to meet the tough quality demands made on us, SAIT has to rely on equipment that combines superior product performance and an attractive cost of ownership with the flexibility to serve different markets and applications. The MA200Compact from SUSS MicroTec seems to be perfectly suited to our needs. The mask aligner showed excellent process capabilities for a variety of positive and negative resists as well as a stunning alignment accuracy."
"With the MA200Compact SUSS can offer an extremely versatile and cost effective production aligner for a variety of applications, starting from MEMS and Wafer Level Packaging up to optoelectronic and telecommunication devices," comments Rolf Wolf, managing director of SUSS MicroTec's Lithography Division. "The MA200Compact is a very efficient exposure tool for thick resist MEMS applications and offers customized substrate handling for all kinds on non-standard substrates like fragile compound semiconductors, warped, drilled and thin substrates, as well as glass and foils."
With an alignment accuracy less than 0.5(micron) and a throughput better than 100 wafers per hour the MA200Compact represents the next-generation of SUSS full-field production lithography systems. With its high intensity illumination and high intensity optics the MA200Compact features a complete suppression of stray light effects, and a very large depth of focus, which yields excellent results even with high topography wafers.
