Creating Perfect Solutions as Basic Principle of Business
SPTS is one of the world leaders in the field of etch and deposition process solutions for the global semiconductor and microelectronics industry. The equipment and solutions offered by SPTS Technologies, has been successfully used by leading semiconductor companies, fabs and research centers around the world for over 30 years. About a year ago, we published an article about the developments of SPTS (NANOINDUSTRY: No.2 (72), 2017). This interview with Franck Torres-Miguel, Regional Account Manager, continues that story.
Mr. Torres-Miguel, what success did the company achieve in 2017?
Our business continues to grow successfully in all regions of the world, including Eastern Europe and Russia. We have presented a number of new developments, in particular, for deep silicon etching, and we continue to develop our solutions in the field of deposition and etch technologies, including CVD, PECVD, PVD, MVD, ICP, DRIE and other processes.
Currently, a large number of developers and suppliers offer equipment for thin film deposition and etching. What distinguishes SPTS's solutions, and what allows the company to occupy a leading position in this segment?
Indeed, many companies offer equipment for CVD, PVD, ICP, but most of these developments are exclusively for research, pilot and small-scale production. Sometimes such equipment makes it possible to implement special modes that are of interest to researchers, but are not suitable for production. The principle distinguishing feature of our equipment is the compliance with the whole set of industrial requirements. It is, first of all, about reliability, technical capabilities and flexibility in terms of implementation, ease of adoption and ease of use of machines. For example, deposition of films are commonly done by physical vapor deposition (PVD), but not all PVD equipment or systems are equal and the results of thier implementation even within the same application can be completely different. In order to be able to be used in industrial production.
