“We are extremely pleased to be partnered with Ultratech for their vibration control and stage feedforward cancellation requirements,” says Ulf Heide, TMC’s president.
Ultratech plans to incorporate Electro-Damp II into its steppers for semiconductor, advanced packaging, microlithography, nanotechnology, and optical networking applications.
