NEXX Systems Celebrates Installation of 50th Nimbus Sputter Deposition System.SAN FRANCISCO San Francisco (săn frănsĭs`kō), city (1990 pop. 723,959), coextensive with San Francisco co., W Calif., on the tip of a peninsula between the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay, which are connected by the strait known as the Golden -- 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 Orem is an incorporated town in the north-central part of the state of Utah in Utah County. It is adjacent to Provo, Lindon, and Vineyard and is about 45 miles south of Salt Lake City. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 84,324. facility for the development of nanotechnology-based digital optics components.
In a brief ceremony held at SEMICON SEMICON Semiconductors Equipment and Material International Conference West 2006, Richard Post, CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization. Typically the president of the company, the CEO reports to the Chairman of the Board. 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."

About NEXX: NEXX Systems brings exceptional technical expertise to the flip chip A chip packaging technique in which the active area of the chip is "flipped over" facing downward. Instead of facing up and bonded to the package leads with wires from the outside edges of the chip, any surface area of the flip chip can be used for interconnection, which is typically done and advanced packaging markets. Our product lines provide the most efficient, yet affordable, systems of their kind: Nimbus for multi-layer sputter deposition of metals, and Stratus stratus: see cloud.
