Praxair Gas Delivery System Tapped by Applied Materials [Professional Services Close - Up]

(Professional Services Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Praxair Electronics, a division of Praxair, Inc., announced in a Feb. 14 release that its UpTime sub-atmospheric dopant gas delivery system has been selected to be the factory default standard for Applied Materials' flagship Varian VIISta ion implant platform.

"We are pleased to offer customers Praxair's UpTime system on our VIISta platform," said Matt Gaucher, general manager of high current implantation at Varian Semiconductor Equipment, a division of Applied Materials, Inc. "Compared to other available options, the UpTime system has demonstrated significantly improved operational productivity on our platform." Ion implantation is a process used in the fabrication of microchips in which ions, created from highly specialized gases, are accelerated and implanted into silicon wafers to modify the properties of a film.

"We look forward to continuing our work with Applied in identifying and jointly bringing to market additional productivity enhancements to customers in the implant space," added Lisa Fanti, director of product commercialization at Praxair. "Applied's adoption of UpTime for their market-leading implant platform is a validation of its advanced and cost-effective capabilities." Praxair is also the preferred sub-atmospheric dopant supplier for the Solion implant tool developed by Varian Semiconductor Equipment for the solar photovoltaic market.

Praxair is an industrial gases company in North and South America with 2011 sales of $11 billion. The company produces, sells and distributes atmospheric and process gases and high-performance surface coatings.
