All training places assigned

Successfully, we were able to fill our vacancies for apprenticeships starting in fall 2021. We wish our future trainees a successful graduation and look forward to accompanying them into a new phase of their lives.

Our sustainable training concept includes, in addition to our own training capacities, a close cooperation with the Bildungs-Werkstatt Chemnitz. This joint apprenticeship enables to us to convey all educational contents to our trainees, according the Vocational Training Act. The Bildungs-Werkstatt Chemnitz, with its modern and qualified educational offerings, is a strong partner in continuously improving our apprenticeship quality today and in the future.

We look forward to continuing our successful cooperation. We will publish our vacancies for apprenticeship in 2022 in the fall of this year.

Successful development in research project HiPERFORM

With the substrate holder designed by scia Systems, epitaxial Aluminum Nitride (epi-AlN) can now be deposited on silicon (111). This is an important step for the development of GaN-based switch technologies. As these have up to 30% less energy losses compared to existing architectures, they can be used to produce more affordable and efficient electric and hybrid vehicles.

scia Mill 300: Structuring of complex multilayers on 300 mm wafers

Increased wafer-size means lower costs. With our new system, scia Mill 300, you can benefit from all the advantages of ion beam etching on 300 mm wafers, such as excellent accuracy and uniformity, adjustable etch angle and processing of complex multilayers with inert and reactive gases.

Just like the other systems in the scia Mill-series, the scia Mill 300 has a full reactive gas compatibly, which enables reactive etch processes like reactive ion beam etching (RIBE) and chemically assisted ion beam etching (CAIBE).

Due to the flexible design, the system is suitable for high-volume and for small scale production.

NEW APPLICATION NOTE: Ion Beam Etching for Reverse Engineering

As modern chip design pushes for smaller, more powerful and more compact devices, reverse engineering requires delayering with highest accuracy within the µm-, nm and atomic thickness range for different materials at once. Ion beam etching is capable to meet these strict requirements.

Learn more in our new application note.

Successful acceptance of scia Trim 200 in Singapore

Last year scia Systems won a public tender of a high precision film thickness trimmer tool for 200 mm wafer processing from the Institute of Microelectronics (IME) at the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) in Singapore.

We are happy that the scia Trim 200 was shipped, built up and installed despite the difficult conditions due to the pandemic. We like to thank our partner Nanyang Equipment Pte Ltd. for their great job and their support.
