ClassOne's 8-chamber Solstice electroplater selected by LED maker in Europe

ClassOne Technology of Kalispell, MT, USA, which manufactures wet-chemical processing equipment (especially for emerging markets and other cost-conscious users of ≤200mm substrates), has announced the purchase of its 8-chamber Solstice S8 electroplating system by what it describes as one of the world's leading LED makers.

"The unique flexibility and process control of the Solstice electroplating system were particularly important factors in addressing this customer's needs," says chief technology officer Kevin Witt. "The fully automated 8-chamber Solstice gives users the ability to process multiple wafer sizes at the same time on a single tool. ClassOne's distinctive design allows the chambers to be changed very quickly and easily. In addition, Solstice can provide a high degree of whole-process control, enabling close monitoring of such parameters as film stress," he adds.   

"ClassOne's level of support for the tool in Europe was another significant factor in making the sale," says president Byron Exarcos. "At this installation we will be providing not only product service but also ongoing process development assistance."

Solstice systems are designed to provide high-performance electroplating on ≤200mm wafers at a very reasonable cost. Because of their performance/price ratio — as well as their ability to handle smaller substrates — Solstice plating tools have become popular in emerging markets such as LED, MEMS, RF, power, and sensors, claims the firm. ClassOne's electroplaters allow users to deposit a broad range of metals and alloys on both opaque and transparent substrates. The Solstice systems are available in fully automated 75wph, 4- and 8-chamber configurations, as well as a smaller, semi-automated tool for process development.
