BEVERLY, Mass., Dec. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --  Axcelis Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: ACLS), a leading supplier of innovative, high-productivity solutions for the semiconductor industry, announced today that one of the world's leading semiconductor manufacturers has placed follow-on orders for Integra™ RS plasma dry strip systems. The systems will be used in high volume production for logic and image sensor devices at two of the chipmaker's new, leading edge fabs.  The systems began shipping in November 2011.



"We look forward to building on our relationship with this customer in the plasma dry strip segment as they expand their manufacturing operations," said Mary Puma, chairman and CEO.  "As devices become more complex, plasma cleaning processes are becoming increasingly critical in a greater percentage of the process flow in order to achieve performance and yield goals. The Integra tools address these new requirements with enabling process technology on a versatile, single-wafer platform. Unlike competitive systems, the Integra RS delivers a wide range of processes without compromising productivity – through a unique, modular design that provides unprecedented manufacturing flexibility and speed."
