Mycronic Receives Order for Two SLX Mask Writers


Reading time ( words)

Mycronic AB has received an order for SLX mask writers from Intel Corporation, for deployment in the US. The order consists of the first two SLX mask writers with the chosen configuration. The total order value for the two SLX mask writers is between USD 10 and 15 million. The first system is planned for delivery in the first half of 2021 whereas the second system is planned for delivery later in the same year.

The laser-based SLX mask writer was launched at the end of October 2019 to meet a rising demand for photomasks for the semiconductor industry driven by long term trends as well as to support an upcoming replacement and modernization cycle. Photomasks produced by laser-based mask writers are very important in the production of semiconductors, accounting for 70−75% of all photomasks produced. The SLX is a new and modern mask writer based on the same technology as the display mask writers, which includes the recently launched Evo control platform.

Mycronic offers mask writers for the manufacture of photomasks within different areas of application. These are display manufacturing (TV, smartphones and tablets), semiconductor manufacturing and applications within multi-purpose, a broad segment comprising many different application areas.

”Intel Corporation is a leading semiconductor manufacturer that is driving photomask development in the semiconductor industry. This order and the related collaboration will provide unique experience and value. It is also a recognition and confirms that the SLX has the capability to meet the most demanding requirements for laser based mask writers,” says Charlott Samuelsson, Sr VP Pattern Generators at Mycronic.

Overcoming Component Selection and Sourcing Challenges

Most PCB designers know precisely how Captain James T. Kirk felt because we often feel the same way when starting a new design. We are launching into something that we ultimately don't know how it will turn out. We don't know the difficulties we'll face or problems we’ll need to fix. While we can control the design process and use our skills to make reasonable decisions, there are often huge hazards awaiting us in the "unknown." One worsening problem for all designers is component procurement.
