Picosun ALD fills the gap in MEMS devices
Picosun Oy, leading Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) equipment manufacturer expands its central role in the field of European semiconductor manufacturing by taking part in a yet new international R&D project, Lab4MEMS.
The project started 1st January, 2013 and will run for two and a half years. Lab4MEMS is Picosun’s fifth simultaneous European funded R&D project and strengthens directly the company’s core competencies in the field of semiconductors, IC (integrated circuits) and electronics. MEMS (Microelectromechanical Systems) devices are amongst ALD’s most central application areas and Picosun has been a forerunner in integrating ALD technology to MEMS manufacturing since the company was founded. Indeed, nowadays PICOSUN™ ALD systems are used by many production customers to whom the company’s technology is in a key role in their MEMS manufacturing process. The number of these customers can only be expected to increase radically in the near future when the MEMS market has been predicted to double to 21 billion dollars by 2017 (Yole Développement).
