 ATM ANNOUNCES MICROWAVE DESIGN AND FABRICATION FACILITY
 FOR PARTNERS REQUIRING MATERIALS EXPERTISE
 DANBURY, Conn., March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Technology Materials (ATM), a leading developer of high-performance semiconductors and thin film processing technologies, today announced that it has completed the qualification of its microwave foundry, a Clean Room equipped for microwave device processing.
 As part of the firm's expansion in the microwave communications industry, ATM is providing its design and fabricn device and circuit prototypes or those who will require a manufacturing capability that involves proprietary processes.
 Many high technology materials vendors prefer the flexibility offered by outsourcing to investing valuable research and development funds in expensive capital equipment and time-consuming efforts to duplicate existing technology.
 ATM is well positioned to serve the microwave industry through its experience in traditional class III-V materials, which include gallium arsenide and indium phosphide, as well as in the latest high-temperature superconductor (HTSC) and silicon carbide materials systems.
 Dr. Duncan Brown, vice president of semiconductor products at ATM, said "As a firm that specializes in development of materials and devices for commercialization, we provide high-quality, rapid turnaround on prototype design and fabrication for customers who don't want to devote all the resources required to setting up an entire shop of their own."
 A pioneer in semiconductor materials development, ATM offers its commercial clients a thorough knowledge of gallium arsenide and high-temperature superconductor materials, design and processing issues.
 The microwave foundry has two distinct product lines, circuit/device design and characterization as well as device fabrication. Industry-standard and custom computer-aided design (CAD) tools are used to design gallium arsenide and high-temperature superconductor devices and circuits, including microwave integrated circuits (MICs), monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), field effect transistors (FETs) and high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs).
 The characterization laboratory is equipped with a Wiltron 360 vector network analyzer and a custom, variable temperature on-wafer probe station. This probe station has a capability of operating at temperatures as low as 10 degrees Kelvin (-263 degrees C) and as high as 360 degrees Kelvin (87 degrees C), allowing characterization of both low- and high-temperature superconducting devices used in microwave and millimeter wave applications.
 ATM is organized as a business incubator to develop and commercialize advanced materials, equipment and devices based on chemical vapor deposition (CVD) technology. The firm markets products to a variety of businesses that operate at key points along the semiconductor manufacturing and supply chain.
 When a technology is determined commercially viable, ATM establishes the technology division as a separate profit-and-loss center, providing the new company with the twin benefits of flexible autonomy and the ability to draw upon ATM for technology resources.
