To meet colossal competitive pressures amid exponential market growth, semiconductors manufacturers must constantly pursue improvements, from ultra-miniaturised circuitry to ever-more-advanced device architectures.
The systems that provide linear motion within the process are critical components for all this. But at the high end today, the specifications for those components are so extreme that only a handful of companies can supply them.
How do semiconductor producers identify a linear motion supplier that can take their fabs to the next level?
Here are three key characteristics your next-generation linear motion supplier must have — to position your process for what’s next.
