Micronic Laser Systems introduces next generation pattern generator for advanced TFT photomasks

Micronic Laser Systems introduces next generation pattern generator for advanced TFT photomasks Täby, Sweden - April 8, 2003 - Micronic Laser Systems AB (OM Stockholm Exchange: MICR), a leading manufacturer of laser pattern generation equipment for the semiconductor and display industries, today introduced a volume production TFT-LCD photomask pattern generator. The LRS11000- TFT3 offers the sub-micron resolution needed to produce advanced gray tone photomasks, as well as those used for large area, low temperature poly silicon (LTPS) TFT-LCDs. "Large LTPS displays can be made without stitching small masks together using photomasks from the LRS11000-TFT3, greatly enhancing the manufacturing productivity," said Jorge Freyer, senior vice president for marketing & business development of Micronic. "With twice the resolution capability of Micronic's previous generation TFT photomask writing tool, the LRS11000-TFT3 enables our customers to meet the requirements of state of the art TFT photomasks." The LRS11000-TFT3 has a maximum resolution of 0.75 micron. Other key features of the LRS11000-TFT3 include a real-time datapath with higher capacity to match the increased pattern density that is a result of the higher resolution; improved linewidth control and pattern registration better than 120 nm. The tool also offers extended multi-beam functionality to maintain high throughput.
