Picosun Scales up ALD for 10 nm Microprocessors

ESPOO, Finland -- Picosun Oy, the leading manufacturer of high quality Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) equipment for global industries, provides the ALD tools and solutions for industrial scale-up of 10 nm node microprocessors, power electronics, and printed sensors for automotive, medical, and environmental monitoring applications.

Picosun's cutting-edge ALD technology and unmatched knowhow in ALD system design and process development enable completely new products and manufacturing methods. These include downscaling of microprocessors, memories, and power electronic components, which enhances device efficiency and process productivity, and highly integrated, miniaturized, multifunctional medical sensing equipment. Large area transparent, flexible, and independent sensor networks, on the other hand, are realized by Picosun's production-scale continuous ALD solutions. These novel products and technologies are in key position in Picosun's six new inter-European industrial collaborations under the Horizon2020 and ECSEL umbrellas.

"ALD's role as the enabler of future industries manifests itself again in Picosun's new technology development collaborations. Electronic components and systems impact all industrial branches and almost all aspects of life. Together with Europe's leading semiconductor and microelectronics industries we are able to integrate our ALD technology into the brightest forefront of future electronics manufacturing, creating an unprecedented competitive edge for our collaboration partners and strengthening Europe's position in the most advanced high-precision electronics production," states Juhana Kostamo, Managing Director of Picosun.

Picosun provides the most advanced ALD thin film technology and enables the industrial leap into the future by novel, cutting-edge coating solutions, with four decades of continuous expertise in the field. Today, PICOSUN™ ALD systems are in daily production use in numerous major industries around the world. Picosun is based in Finland, with subsidiaries in USA, China, and Singapore, and a world-wide sales and support network.
