Applied Materials, Inc. Announces Collaboration with Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. and PSK Inc. to Develop an Advanced Patterning Solution

Applied Materials, Inc. announced it collaborated with Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. and PSK Inc. to develop an advanced patterning solution for the manufacture of future generations of NAND and DRAM device designs. The new solution, available now, consists of the unique Saphira APF hardmask deposited on the Applied Producer XP Precision CVD system, and the Saphira removal process supported on the PSK OMNIS Asher tool. This comprehensive solution represents a breakthrough in precision materials engineering for complex patterning applications. The Saphira APF deposition and PSK OMNIS Asher systems resolve major issues to improve patterning of more complex device structures at advanced technology nodes. For emerging high aspect ratio and dense patterning requirements, the Saphira APF process introduces new film properties that include greater selectivity and transparency. The high-productivity PSK OMNIS Asher system is capable of completely removing the Saphira hardmask layer while preserving the patterned shapes and underlying materials.
