Bill Bintz, executive vice president of product development, engineering and marketing commented, "This order marks the closure of a very successful evaluation with a very important customer and sets the stage for significant follow on business.  The Purion M exceeded our customer's expectations in multiple critical performance categories - delivering enabling process capabilities, greatly reducing the customer's operating costs and advancing sustainable manufacturing goals."

The Purion M is designed to support the industry's move to the sub 10nm era, enabling semiconductor manufacturers to deliver faster devices for next generation mobile computing power. The system transcends the current generation of medium current implanters, offering a wide array of technological innovations in high volume production of the world's most advanced devices:

  • Unmatched Contamination Control - As devices continue to scale, sensitivity to contamination is of paramount concern.  The Purion M's innovative beamline demonstrates an impressive reduction of particulate contamination in comparison to the competition, as well as the industry's lowest levels for metal contamination, enabling the highest production yields.
  • Reduced Energy Consumption - the Purion M's system architecture advances our customers' efforts towards more sustainable manufacturing practices, through a combination of energy efficiency and high productivity.  The system's single magnet beamline design, coupled with the industry's highest levels of productivity, achieves a reduction in total energy consumption by >50% per wafer in comparison to the competition.
  • Maximized Productivity – The Purion M utilizes Axcelis' precision spot beamline technology coupled with a 500 WPH single wafer platform.  This combination provides exceptional reliability, and remarkable precision and productivity for the widest range (2keV - 1MeV) of low energy and mid dose applications, especially well, channel and HALO processes. During this recent evaluation, the system provided the customer with a remarkable improvement in total productivity in comparison to the competition.
