CVD Equipment Corporation Receives Production System Order to Support 5G Wireless Technology

CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y., (Business Wire) – March 29, 2022 – CVD Equipment Corporation (NASDAQ: CVV), a leading provider of chemical vapor deposition systems, today announced that it has received an order for a production Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD) system valued at approximately $1M. This system PECVD200 will be used for the production of discrete semiconductor devices on 200 mm wafers to support 5G Wireless technology. CVD plans to deliver this system before the end of this calendar year.

The configurable cluster tool platform can accommodate up to three (3) PECVD process modules for increased production throughout, depositing carbon-based materials onto 200mm wafers. The process module features advances in multi-zone heating and temperature stabilization for optimal deposition uniformity. Additionally, the PECVD200 system will be SECS/GEM industry compliant (Semiconductor Equipment Communications Standard/Generic Equipment Model) to enable defined communication capabilities for monitoring and controlling the equipment in a Foundry. This advanced PECVD200 system launches a new cluster tool product platform for the Company, conforming to international communication standards enabling high volume manufacturing of discrete electronic components.

“CVD continues to solidify its position in the growth and deposition of carbon materials and we are proud to have been selected to provide this system and technology as it is aligned with our strategic growth objectives of serving production application products,” said Emmanuel Lakios, President and CEO of CVD Equipment Corporation.
