Camtek announces follow-on orders for Falcon system
Dec 13, 2005
Camtek Ltd. has announced that it has received orders from a global top-10 semiconductor manufacturer based in Europe, with facilities in Europe, USA and Asia Pacific, for Falcon, Camtekâ€™s semiconductor inspection system.
These follow a previous order that was installed and recognized in the third quarter. The current orders total over $1.3 million. Installation and revenue recognition are expected during the current and next quarter.
"This customer is a global leader in several of the segments it serves, and produces a broad variety of products used in almost every aspect of our lives," said Roni Flieswasser, President of Camtek Europe (Belgium). "As such, we regard these repeat orders, which are based on a global umbrella agreement that we have with this customer, as an indication of significant future potential."
Mr. Flieswasser added, "An application of major interest to this customer was a wafer of MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical System) devices. These wafers contain complex three-dimensional structures with surfaces at multiple levels. The Falcon inspected all levels in one cycle, applying optimal inspection parameters at each level. Camtek has again demonstrated both the Falconâ€™s versatility for challenging applications and the ability to cater products to its customerâ€™s unique factory automation environments."
