Applied Global Services offers a comprehensive portfolio of ≤200mm equipment and upgrades to address a full spectrum of production needs from technology inflections to productivity enhancements. AGS equipment and upgrades extend tool lifetime and support a broad variety of devices which enable the mobility evolution including analog, power, image, and MEMS.
Analog and Mixed Signal IC's growth is driven by the proliferation of wireless technologies. Higher frequencies and output powers define the technical requirements of this class of devices.
The demand for power management and switching devices is increasing on the expansion of mobile consumer electronics and the implementation of smart appliances to reduce power consumption.
The expanding use of MEMS devices, including accelerometers, gyroscopes and microphones, is a major contributor to the ongoing transformation of the mobile, automotive and medical device markets.
To meet the needs of reduced form-factor electronics and ever-shrinking die footprint, the long discussed vertical integration of IC's has finally moved into production in semiconductor fabrication.
