Warning Warning: This page has not been released yet.

This tool is primarily used to expose photo-definable materials. We allow 4” masks, 5” masks, 7” masks, transparencies, shadow masking, or just flood exposure. The tooling can also be changed out to provide wafer to wafer alignment for wafers that need to be aligned before bonding in the SB-6E Bonder.


  • 1-2 µm min feature size resolution in thin resist
  • Aspect Ratio 1:3 fairly standard
  • Substrate thickness 200 µm to 4 mm possible
