Canon launches sales of new FPA-3030i5+ i-line stepper
Canon U.S.A. recently launched sales of the new FPA-3030i5+ i-line stepper.The Canon FPA-3030i5+ is designed to provide a long-term manufacturing solution for manufacturers of energy-efficient, environmentally conscious devices including Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs),MicroElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS) and power semiconductors. The FPA-3030i5+ represents a new product platform, designed specifically to provide a flexible solution for a variety of users, including power semiconductor, LED and MEMS manufacturers. The FPA-3030 platform represents an upgrade to earlier Canon “FPA-3000 platform” steppers. The FPA-3030i5+ features an overhauled software structure and electrical control system that allow application of optional advanced hardware (e.g., projection lens, wafer stage, and alignment system) that is not compatible with traditional FPA-3000 platform steppers.
The Canon FPA-3030i5+ is capable of providing imaging resolution below 0.35μm, while maintaining overlay accuracy of less than or equal to 40nm and throughput equal to or in excess of 104 wafers per hour. With the purchase of the optional Multi-Size Wafer Kit, the FPA-3030i5+ stepper can also be configured to process multiple wafer sizes, and can be equipped with other optional equipment to help improve productivity and efficiency.
