This year the CS Mantech conference started on Monday, May 9, with the workshops on the pandemic's impact on all aspects of compound semiconductor manufacturing technology. In the last two years, we all have been affected by supply chain shortages, so it felt relevant and important when speakers were addressing those issues. Our H-Square team, Steven Hausle and Len Angle re-connected in person with many of our business partners.
Customers visiting the H-Square's booth could try out our manual and automated tools real-time. We had an LCT2 - low-contact wafer-transfer, an AWM2 - automatic wafer mover and sorter, vacuum wands, tips, and cassettes. However, the most popular items turned out to be H-Square lines on Breeze Wands- a non-contact tool that employs the Bernoulli* principle which is ideal for wafer handling of thin, warped, thick, and SEMI standard wafers.
In the late afternoon, Karl Gartland, our Manager of Product Development and Engineering, gave a lively 15-minute presentation on the history and development of semiconductor handling solutions. If you are looking to connect with Karl, please send your messages to: https://www.h-square.com/support/.
The conference ended on Thursday afternoon with the closing sessions, including the final talk, "The Journey of the James Web Space Telescope" from Jon Arenberg from Northrop Grumman, discussing the technical challenges, opportunities, and excitement of the very recent launch of the most advanced telescope into space!
Thank you to the sponsors, speakers, and everyone who organized, supported, and coordinated this great event. We are always seeking opportunities to connect with others in the industry and utilize our innovative solutions to improve your manufacturing production!
We hope to see you again next year in Orlando!
*Bernoulli's principle can also be derived directly from Isaac Newton's Second Law of Motion. If a small volume of fluid is flowing horizontally from a region of high pressure to a region of low pressure, then there is more pressure behind than in front. This gives a net force on the volume, accelerating it along the streamline.
