Kyoto, Japan – September 16, 2021 – SCREEN Semiconductor Solutions Co., Ltd. (SCREEN SPE) has been honored with a prestigious excellence award at the 2021 Semiconductor of the Year Awards. The prize, received in the production equipment category, was for the company’s SP-2100 spin processor for single wafer cleaning. The system has already gained an impressive reputation since its launch in 2020.
The Semiconductor of the Year Awards are organized by Electronic Device Industry News, published by Sangyo Times, Inc. This year marked the 27th edition of the annual program. Prize-winning products and technologies are selected based on votes cast by the newspaper’s own journalists, according to criteria such as development innovation, establishment of mass production systems, impact on society and future potential.
SCREEN SPE’s highly regarded SP-2100 incorporates a number of advances, including an updated wafer transfer mechanism and a processing sequence that enables tasks to be separated. These innovations have made the system almost 40% more compact than the company’s conventional 8-inch single wafer cleaning equipment.
The SP-2100 also enables the size of process wafers to be changed easily after installation, greatly simplifying system modification. This flexibility means the SP-2100 can be configured to suit a range of applications.
SCREEN SPE continues to drive forward technological innovation as it works to meet the needs of its customers for greater functionality, diversification and energy efficiency. SCREEN SPE remains focused on supporting the future growth of the semiconductor industry as a leading manufacturer of equipment in this field.
