Asyst receives 300mm FOUP orders valued at $5 million

Fremont, California–Asyst Technologies, Inc., the world’s largest semiconductor fab automation company, today announced it has received initial multiple orders, valued at approximately $5 million, for its 300mm front-opening unified pods (FOUPs) from semiconductor and foundry firms in Europe and Taiwan.

Asyst’s 300mm FOUPs isolate costly 300mm wafers throughout the front-end semiconductor manufacturing process and protect them from damage due to mishandling, contamination, or electrostatic discharge.

The orders, secured over the past month, all reflect multi-year contracts for high-volume production quantities of the Asyst FOUPs, to be used on both pilot and production 300mm fab lines.

Shipments began this month, and will continue in stages throughout the first half of 2001.
