Extended Ultraviolet Lithography Market : Understanding the Key Product Segments and their Future

Press Release   •   Jan 09, 2018 03:23 EST

With the advancement of the semiconductor equipment industry there has been a tremendous increase in demand for more cost effective and efficient production of electronic components with the increasing demand. The demand for electronics emerges from number of applications ranging from communication to consumer electronic devices to even sensor devices.

In this respect, the demand for lithography systems increased considerably. Extended ultraviolet lithography is a progressive technology used for manufacturing of microprocessors and integrated circuits with wavelength of 13.5 nm. Extended ultraviolet lithography works when high flaming energetic beams of ultraviolet lights gets reflected from a circuit design pattern into a silicon wafer.

Extended ultraviolet light has different properties at different wavelengths and this light should get reflected from mirrors instead of refracting through lenses onto the wafer. Currently, extended ultraviolet lithography consists of two condenser multilayer mirrors, six multilayer projection mirrors and a multilayer object.

A European stepper manufacture uses an extended ultraviolet lithography having wavelength of upto 13.4 nm by using 0.25 numerical aperture camera without using OPC. For typical industrial applications of extended ultraviolet lithography it requires high power ultraviolet light source at a wavelength of 13.5 nm and a throughput of 100 wafers per hour.

The major driver boosting the extended ultraviolet lithography market is the increased for devices with comparatively low wavelengths, and a hundreds of times more powerful than those being used currently. The smaller wavelength results in highly dense packed components on the chips to generate fast processing power. The device speed increases with smaller gate lengths.

Another driver that drives the extended ultraviolet market is the size of the device and the low cost. The major challenge in extended ultraviolet lithography is the placing of mirrors so perfectly that the light with acceptable precision. The other major challenge that restricts the growth of the extended ultraviolet lithography is the complex technology used by extended ultraviolet lithography requires scanning systems for production of semiconductors, mask infrastructure and new chemicals.
