VERTEQ'S LEGAL ACTION AGAINST SUBMICRON SYSTEMS FOR PATENT INFRINGEMENT CONTINUES

 ANAHEIM, Calif., Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- VERTEQ Inc., a long-time leader in the manufacturing of megasonic cleaning systems and other processing equipment for the semiconductor industry, continues its legal action for patent infringement against SubMicron Systems Corp., an Allentown, Pa.-based manufacturer of automated wet benches.
 A hearing was held on Wednesday, Sept. 22, in the Federal District Court in Santa Ana, Calif. SubMicron Systems represented to the Court that will no longer ship megasonic cleaners with transducer assemblies of the design which prompted the suit and introduced a modified design. The company has indicated that they have built only one unit of the modified design and there are none in the field.
 "Our Sunburst Turbo(TM) Megasonic has proven itself with a large installed base and substantial laboratory data," said Keith Norby, chairman and chief executive officer for VERTEQ. "We are confident customers will prefer it over SubMicron's modified design."
 The court ordered that the issue of infringement by SubMicron's recently modified design be included in the trial scheduled for January 1994.
