FREMONT, Calif., Feb. 28, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Legacy Holding, Inc. (Pink Sheets:LGYH) announces that it is manufacturing a HF: DryZone(tm) wetstation in order to fulfill a recently announced second purchase order from Tyco International, Ltd. The fully automated, cassette-less wetstation provides wafers with either hydrophilic or hydrophobic surface terminations using the patented DryZone(tm) process.
The relationship started in 2003 when Tyco investigated the surface preparation capabilities of the DryZone(tm) process and has grown since. In May 2007, Tyco completed qualification of Legacy's DryZone(tm) Hydrophilic: Hydrophobic Wafer Drying System. A second expanded system, which was ordered in Q4-2007 for delivery in Q1-2008, is being constructed and will be ready for shipment late March. Legacy looks forward to many years of service and mutual benefits in its continued partnership with Tyco Electronics.
In the first nine months of 2007, Legacy also received customer sign-off acceptance documents on two of its robotic wet process benches for Semiconductor manufacturers that included Micrel Semiconductor and Cree.
More on the company's equipment manufacturing capabilities:
Legacy produces automated wet process equipment for the semiconductor, flat panel, solar cell, and MEMS industries. The equipment utilizes both patented process and hardware technologies developed by Legacy Systems. The heart of the process technology is a state-of-the-art ozone cleaning and drying system. The Ozone technology base eliminates or reduces hazardous chemistries and hazardous process conditions while increasing process performance and wafer throughput.
The station is self contained with on-board wafer automation (robotics), leading edge wafer carriers which reduce particle generation and increase robotic handling reliability, integrated chemical generation/supply for highest chemical purity available, patented process surface preparation technology, environmental safety monitors, and high component reliability.
