KLA-Tencor Acquires Microelectronic Inspection Equipment of Vistec Semiconductor

KLA-Tencor Corporation today announced that it has completed its acquisition of the Microelectronic Inspection Equipment (MIE) business unit of Vistec Semiconductor Systems. The MIE business unit of Vistec is headquartered in Weilburg, Germany and provides advanced semiconductor mask and wafer manufacturing systems. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“Vistec has a renowned legacy for developing precision inspection and metrology equipment,” said Rick Wallace, chief executive officer of KLA-Tencor. “The MIE division of Vistec complements KLA-Tencor's product portfolio and provides an opportunity for growth into new segments of the mask and wafer markets.”

Vistec's MIE business unit is one of three internationally active business units of Vistec Semiconductor Systems, which is wholly owned by Golden Gate Capital, a San Francisco based private equity firm.
