ClassOne opens new Technology Development Center

ClassOne Technology of Kalispell, MT, USA (which manufactures electroplating and wet-chemical process systems for ≤200mm wafers) has relocated and opened its technology demonstration and applications laboratory. Formerly located in ClassOne’s Atlanta, Georgia location, the Technology Development Center has been relocated to Kalispell, site of ClassOne Technology’s engineering and manufacturing facilities.

Triple the size of the previous incarnation, the new 2000ft2 raised-floor laboratory has a new Class 1000 cleanroom facilitized for both acid/base and solvent applications. ClassOne has installed wet-processing and metrology tools to facilitate rapid development and accelerated technology demonstrations for existing and prospective clients, and has begun taking orders for process analysis and development work. Chief among these are ClassOne’s Solstice wet processing platforms, which are claimed to be the lowest-cost single-wafer electroplating platforms available for up to 200mm substrates.

With combined experience of over 125 years in almost every aspect of semiconductor wet processing (including plating, wet etching, cleaning and solvent processes), ClassOne says that its Technology Development Center (TDC) has the expertise to handle every process challenge, from problem diagnosis to sophisticated process development.

“Technology demonstrations have become a vital part of the sales process, and we’ve expanded our lab to accommodate the rapidly growing demand for our electroplating and wet-process tools,” says John Ghekiere, director of the ClassOne Technology Group. “This state-of-the-art facility gives us the freedom and flexibility to rapidly develop unique, leading-edge solutions. Co-location of the lab here in Kalispell provides us with convenient access to our engineering and manufacturing teams, and enables us to provide robust, rapid-response solutions for our customers,” he adds.

“Our Solstice electroplating platform has become the tool of choice for the compound semiconductor and other emerging markets, and demo requests are growing rapidly,” says ClassOne Technology’s CEO Byron Exarcos. “Our new Technology Development Center is perfectly positioned to allow ClassOne to meet those requests quickly and efficiently, while keeping pace with growing market demands.”
