Chip Making at 1,300°C

Today's microchips are marvels of nanoscale engineering. A modern microprocessor contains hundreds of millions of transistors packed onto a thumbnail-size piece of silicon. However, our customers are hard at work on designs that will make today’s chips seem crude by comparison.

Rapid Thermal Processing: Hot Stuff for Cool Chips

Our announcement that we’ve recently shipped our 500th Applied Vantage® rapid thermal processing (RTP) system started me thinking about the contribution RTP has made to chip technology over the years.From furnaces to lamps and now lasers, thermal processing has evolved along with the industry, allowing chipmakers to squeeze a billion transistors on a fingernail-sized fragment of silicon.
