|Zygo Corporation Receives First UniFire-7900™ Order From Major Data Storage Customer|
|MIDDLEFIELD, CT, Jun 26, 2007 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX News Network) -- Zygo Corporation (NASDAQ: ZIGO), a leading worldwide optical
metrology supplier, today announced that it has received an order
from a leading disk drive manufacturer for its new fully automated
metrology system, the UniFire-7900™. The system will be used for
both surface topography and thin films characterization on magnetic
head wafers and is expected to be delivered in the fourth quarter of
this calendar year.
The UniFire-7900™ optical metrology system provides high precision, three-dimensional topography information at industry leading throughput. Its small footprint and flexible automation allows customers to take advantage of ZYGO's advanced technology in a high volume manufacturing environment. The UniFire-7900™ combines thin films analysis with surface topography measurement, thereby extending the capability of traditional interferometry.
Michael Darwin, ZYGO's Vice President, Semiconductor Solutions Business Unit, made the following comment, "ZYGO is committed to providing leading edge capability, performance, and value to all of our customers. Historically, data storage has been a very strong market segment for ZYGO products but primarily for lab-based systems. Our fully automated UniFire-7900™ for the data storage market provides enhanced throughput and process control capability for critical applications, and the order further validates our strategy that single sensor, multifunctional capability is something our customers will embrace. We find this order particularly exciting, as it expands the application space for our advanced semiconductor technology."
