In case you missed our latest news, BRIDG is excited to partner with Tokyo Electron (TEL) to drive 200mm processing technology to the next level. As a global leader in the development and manufacturing of state-of-the-art equipment used to manufacture semiconductor devices – Technology Enabling Life – TEL is focusing on enhancing 200mm tool offerings and plans to leverage BRIDG’s facility and open environment to demonstrate the industry-leading capabilities of their latest equipment.
As described in the feature below, TEL will install several new pieces of equipment at BRIDG, and our teams will jointly develop innovative processes designed to unlock the full potential of those tools. With the emergence of 5G and IoT devices challenging the limits of current 200mm wafer manufacturing, the collaborative environment at the BRIDG facility offers the perfect opportunity for TEL to showcase their capabilities to US-based customers, while also allowing BRIDG to operate the tools and enhance our offerings to customers through the new capabilities enabled by this equipment.
Perhaps most exciting of all are the advantages this agreement brings to not only BRIDG and TEL, but also to our many respective customers who will directly benefit from our collective contributions toward solving industry’s core challenges. TEL has already established a small technical team at NeoCity, and we look forward to working hand in hand with them as the partnership grows.
Meanwhile, our business development and technical teams are busy completing proposals for multiple federal opportunities due next month, and we are all anxiously preparing for our upcoming office move. The completion of the Class A office building, located adjacent to our fab, presents a great opportunity for BRIDG. With the majority of our staff transitioning into the new building, the space currently being used for office space within the fab will be available to convert into much-needed lab space for our growing list of partners.
We will share more on the move in next month’s newsletter. Until then, please join us as we build the future here in NeoCity!
