Gigaphoton Announces Product Range Renewal Plan

Inc. (Head Office: Oyama, Tochigi; President & CEO: Katsumi
Uranaka), a leading manufacturer of light sources used in semiconductor
lithography, has announced a renewal plan for its product range in order
to cope with the rapid increase in demand for semiconductors caused by
the spread of the IoT and the explosive expansion of 3D NAND.

In recent years, applications of semiconductors have been steadily
expanding, from automobiles to finance, medicine, agriculture, etc., and
the need for cost reductions and yield improvements amongst
semiconductor manufacturers is higher than ever. To resolve this
situation, and to assist its customers in all wavelength regions,
ranging from KrF to liquid immersion ArF, following the initial shipment
in 2017 of the GT65A new-design immersion ArF laser, which aimed for
greatly improved spectral controllability, Gigaphoton are now offering
new-design KrF and ArF lasers, aiming for still higher performance and
durability, in order to meet the explosively expanding demand
accompanying the ongoing shift to 3D NAND memory.

Katsumi Uranaka, President & CEO of Gigaphoton commented, “Gigaphoton
aims to respond to customer requests by renewing our product range. We
will continue to push forward and make major contributions, not just in
the semiconductor industry, but in the wider shift towards smart
information technology occurring across the globe.”
