Solmates is pleased to announce its first sale for the 5G base station market. The PLD-based thin film deposition tool will be located at a production facility in the US, and will be shipped in Q4 of 2019.
This deal confirms the need for wafer based PLD processing in the 5G volume production market. The challenges for the 5G base stations and receivers require the introduction of novel material systems. Solmates’ Pulsed Laser Deposition systems are the technology that is ideally suited to integrate these new materials into device layer stacks.
