INTEVAC yesterday announced a fan-out polymerization order for advanced semiconductor packaging applications on the INTEVAC MATRIX PVD platform.
The system will be delivered in the first quarter of 2021 after the fan-out evaluation program with a leading outsourced assembly and test IVAC has completed this month. A wide range of thin-film packaging applications can be manufactured on the INTEVAC MATRIX.
How IVAC achieved it?
It is important validation that the MATRIX PVD fan-out wafer- and panel-level system by Intevac (IVAC) meets the requirements of the next-generation advanced semiconductor packaging market. It was done after IVAC completed the evaluation program, and subsequently being purchased and accepted by customers, as said Wendell Blonigan, President and CEO of Intevac.
