Foundry

Queen's Advanced Micro-Engineering Centre houses a suite of semiconductor processing equipment which are available for customer foundry needs. The equipment set encompasses all sides of silicon processing including:

  •  Photomask design and printing.
  •  Photolithography
  •  Chemical vapour deposition
  •  Diffusion processes(doping and oxidation)
  •  Etch(wet chemical etch, RIE,  deep ICP etching)
  •  Metalisation
  •  Test
  • Chemical Mechanical Polishing

Follow the Foundry Link for more details of what is on offer.
