SkyWater Installs Advanced Atomic Layer Deposition System from Picosun

SkyWater Technology (SkyWater Technology | U.S. Semiconductor Manufacturer) has announced the installation of an Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) system, the Applied Picosun MorpherTM, to offer advanced semiconductor processing capabilities to its customers. ALD is a precise method for depositing ultra-thin, uniform, and conformal material layers, making it ideal for applications like sensors and emerging memory technologies. SkyWater's Technology as a Service (TaaS) model allows customers to access this technology for developing and producing innovative technologies. The ALD tool has two thermal batch chambers for depositing metals and oxides, ensuring high-quality and repeatable results. This move aims to meet the increasing demand for ALD applications in semiconductor processing, particularly in areas such as biosensors, photonics, and extreme CMOS applications.
