2021年1月21日,中国珠海-英诺赛科科技有限公司和ASML公司达成批量购买高产能i-line和KrF光刻机的协议,用于制造先进的硅基氮化镓功率器件。


全球领先的硅基氮化镓集成器件制造商英诺赛科科技有限公司和光刻机制造厂商ASML近期达成批量购买高产能i-line和KrF光刻机的合作协议。ASML是全球芯片制造设备领导厂商,其生产的XT400和XT860 的i-line和KrF经过升级,能够在硅基晶圆上制造氮化镓功率器件。凭借其独特的TWINSCAN(双工件台)架构,ASML的i-line和KrF光刻机能提供最卓越的性能、市场上最高的生产效率以及最低的成本。双工件台技术架构已经成为全球300mm和200mm晶圆量产生产线中的先进光刻技术代表 。英诺赛科将在今年第二季度搬入首批光刻机,这是第三代半导体领域首次量产应用先进的ASML TWINSCAN(双工件台)光刻技术,这一实施标志着第三代半导体制造技术正式进入了一个全新的纪元。

英诺赛科科技有限公司成立于2015年12月,是一家致力于第三代半导体硅基氮化镓芯片制造的企业。公司成功建成投产全球首条200mm硅基氮化镓晶圆与功率器件量产生产线,主要产品包括200mm硅基氮化镓晶圆及30V-650V氮化镓功率器件。英诺赛科产品的设计与性能均达到国际最先进水平,并已广泛应用于PD快充、立体(3D)相机、移动电子设备(包括智能手机、笔记本电脑、平板电脑)等领域。英诺赛科致力于打造世界一流品牌,并为全球宽禁带半导体产业的发展做出贡献。


功率器件和电路可以通过高开关频率和高功率密度来实现高效的能源管理, 这些功能可以广泛用于快速增长的新兴市场如数据中心、可再生能源和下一代无线通讯网络等。除较小的外形尺寸外,由于其高频率、高功率密度等特性,硅基氮化镓还是快速充电,直流电网,新能源汽车等市场理想选择。“第三代半导体”材料包括氮化镓(GaN) 、碳化硅(SiC)、氮化铝(AlN)、金刚石和氧化锌(ZnO),而氮化镓(GaN)是“第三代半导体”材料的典型代表,具有广阔的市场应用前景。


2021年1月21日在珠海举行的签约仪式上,英诺赛科CEO 孙在亨先生 说:“我非常荣幸的宣布英诺赛科与ASML达成合作协议,我们将在一起努力用氮化镓技术改变未来。作为一家致力于推动第三代半导体创新革命的企业,我们需要与像ASML这样全球半导体领军的企业合作,采用更加先进的制造工艺,实现更加高的性能、良率和产出,在快速成长的各种应用领域(例如快充、TOF相机(Time-of-Flight Camera) 、智能手机、电动车、数据中心等)共同推出最先进的解决方案以及下个世代的氮化镓器件,为我们的客户、伙伴和消费者创造更有价值的产品和服务。第三代半导体是一次产业革命性的升级,变革从不简单,它需要我们携手共进,携手共进我们将实现合作共赢。


ASML全球副总裁,中国区总裁沈波表示:“我们很高兴成为英诺赛科的合作伙伴,第三代半导体在全球市场有广阔的应用前景,阿斯麦会全力提供光刻解决方案和服务,支持英诺赛科在这一领域的发展。”


“我们应用在200mm晶圆生产线上的 XT平台,包括i-line、KrF和干式ArF等光刻机,是快速增长的硅基氮化镓市场的理想长期解决方案,不仅在生产率和成本方面是这样, 随着氮化镓(GaN)材料在新领域的应用,套准精度和成像要求也会随着时间的推移而扩展。” ASML 深紫外光刻业务产品营销和业务开发高级总监Toni Mesquida Kuesters说: “我们致力于帮助英诺赛科实现其预期目标,并期待卓有成效的合作。”

January 21, 2021 – InnoScience and ASML reached a volume purchase agreement for upgraded versions of high throughput i-line and KrF TWINSCAN scanners for advanced GaN on Silicon power semiconductors


Leading GaN-on-Silicon Integrated Device Manufacturer Innoscience Technology Co., Ltd. (“Innoscience”) has recently purchased several TWINSCAN scanners from ASML Holding N.V. (“ASML”), the world’s leading provider of lithography systems to the semiconductor industry.  ASML’s XT: 400 and XT: 860 200 mm i-line and KrF scanners, respectively, will be adapted to manufacture GaN-on-Si Power Devices. These tools will not only offer the best performance, but also the highest productivity and lowest cost of ownership available in the market place.  ASML’s dual stage TWINSCAN architecture, currently represents the lithography backbone at most of the 200mm and 300 mm high volume manufacturing sites worldwide. Innoscience will receive the first systems in the second quarter of this year. Innoscience is the world first company in the wide band-gap semiconductor field to apply ASML’s advanced TWINSCAN lithography tool in mass production, this effort will bring the fast growing industry to a new era.
