Semiconductor equipment manufacturer ClassOne Technology has been selling its Solstice electroplating systems to the industry’s leading providers of VCSEL (Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser) devices in recent months.
“This is an important trend. We’re observing unprecedented demand for VCSEL manufacturing capacity to support 3D sensing, fibre-optic communications, and laser-based materials processing,” said ClassOne Group CEO, Byron Exarcos.
“At the same time, we see that compound semiconductor manufacturers are migrating production from wet-benches to automated single-wafer plating. The strong upturn in our Solstice sales reflects this.”
