Veeco Instruments Inc. announced today that Philips Innovation Services, a service provider within Royal Philips Electronics N.V., has recently qualified a NEXUS® Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) System at its location on the High Tech Campus Eindhoven, Netherlands. This system will support Philips Innovation Services’ capabilities in a broad range of thin film device applications, including MEMS, sensors, nano-electronics and others.
Christ van Hout, Strategic Purchasing CAPEX at Philips Innovation Services, commented, “Veeco was determined from the beginning to find the right solution for our equipment needs. We were under an extremely aggressive installation timeline and Veeco’s team partnered with us to meet our requirements. Their professional approach and superior process knowledge exceeded our expectations.”
