Veeco Instruments Inc. has opened a 15,000-square foot epitaxial Process Integration Center (PIC) adjacent to its molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) manufacturing operations in Minnesota, U.S.A. Veeco is a manufacturer of metrology tools and process equipment for the semiconductor, data storage, telecommunications/wireless, and scientific research markets.

The PIC will provide Veeco's equipment and processes to augment customer production operations. The center contains both Veeco R&D and production MBE systems and features the company's entire portfolio of MBE sources, as well as a comprehensive set of optical, electrical, and structural characterization tools.

"The compound and silicon semiconductor markets are converging," said Dr. Hwa Cheng, PIC director. "We've adopted a silicon model for our PIC so Veeco can partner up front with customers on their equipment and product roadmaps."
