ClassOne Technology won “Best of West” Award for its Solstice S4 . The award program runs in conjunction with SEMICON West.ClassOne Technology’s Solstice S4 is the first automated plating tool for 200mm lesser semiconductor wafer electroplateing.
The Solstice Family of Electroplating Systems:
Solstice LT — 1-2 chambers, manual-load development tool, 70.25" x 40" footprint
New Solstice S4 — Up to 4 chambers, cassette-to-cassette automation, 68" x 82" footprint
Solstice S8 — Up to 8 chambers, cassette-to-cassette automation, 68" x 114" footprint
Solstice family introduced in year 2014 offering both performance as well as cost advantages to semiconductor companies want to make the devices using 200mm lesser semiconductor wafer size for components such as MEMS, LEDs, RF, Power, Sensors. Solstice systems says it systems are priced at less than half of what similarly configured plating systems from the larger manufacturers would cost — which is why Solstice has been described as "Advanced Plating for the Rest of Us."
