NEXX Systems Celebrates Installation of 50th Nimbus Sputter Deposition System.

SAN FRANCISCO -- NEXX Systems, a leading provider of processing equipment for advanced wafer-level packaging applications, today celebrates the installation of the 50th Nimbus sputter deposition system. The system has been shipped for installation at MOXTEK, Inc.'s Orem, Utah facility for the development of nanotechnology-based digital optics components.

In a brief ceremony held at SEMICON West 2006, Richard Post, CEO of NEXX Systems, remarked, "This installation represents an exciting milestone for both NEXX Systems and the Nimbus product line. This 50th system represents the culmination of our efforts to address increasing demands for enhanced process parameters, a broader base of applications, greater throughput, and lower cost of ownership. And, we are delighted MOXTEK's business has grown to demand a second Nimbus tool at their facility."

Steve Pritchett, Process Development Manager, representing MOXTEK at SEMICON, added, "NEXX has been a great partner in MOXTEK's move to volume manufacturing of our optical products. Our first Nimbus supported both 150 mm and 200 mm wafer sizes for our volume ramp and wafer size transition. The Nimbus offers a lot of functionality in a relatively simple system, so when we looked at adding other processes and more capacity, a second Nimbus was our system of choice. NEXX has offered excellent support in configuring this 50th system to meet our future deposition needs. We are very excited to get this system and look forward to the continued business success of both MOXTEK and NEXX Systems."
