Mycronic Launches Mask Writer for Top Critical Display Photomasks


Reading time ( words)

Mycronic AB, launches a new display mask writer and continues to improve performance. At Photomask Japan on 6 April, Mycronic introduces the new mask writer that defines a new resolution standard for top critical display photomasks.

Mycronic’s new mask writer Prexision-800 (P-800) has substantial improvements in optical resolution and enables more than 25 percent denser pattern designs than previously possible. The new mask writer will ensure efficient production of future display photomasks for 4K smartphone displays and advanced AMOLED displays when used with the new 1.5 micron aligner generation used for display manufacturing up to generation 6 (G6). The P-800 becomes the most advanced mask writer.

The P-800 is based on Mycronic’s Prexision platform and provides a number of new technical features and improvements for higher performance and resolution. At the same time productivity is maintained at a high level. These features create a cost effective production of next generation top critical photomasks.

“The trend towards higher resolution displays has accelerated the last couple of years. At the same time the display technology has become more advanced. This means that pattern complexity within each display pixel has increased. This trend will continue to evolve and a new mask writer with higher resolution is required,” says Magnus Råberg, Sr VP and General Manager PG of Mycronic AB and adds: “The new capabilities offered by the P-800 translate into cost effective production of the coming most demanding photomasks at the mask makers. At the same time the display manufacturers enjoy higher yield and possibility to develop new innovative display products.”

How to Minimize Quoting Time and Increase Accuracy in EMS Production

03/30/2022 | Mark Laing, Siemens Digital Industries Software
New product introductions (NPIs) and customization have been increasing rapidly over the past few years—with the results that the already-small profit margins in electronics assembly are shrinking even further. Fifteen years ago, the PCB was the product. Today, most products are a system, with multiple PCBs, cables, and enclosures. Many manufacturers want to provide turn-key products that have multiple BOMs, making the assembly process even more complicated.

The Impact of Obsolescence and Shortages on Counterfeit Risk

01/19/2022 | Vernon Densler, Sourceability N.A. LLC
While obsolescence and shortages have always been an issue, recent large-scale disruptions have made the electronic components supply chain even more volatile. Since last December, the global chip shortage has caused pricing shifts, lead time delays, and widespread stockouts. The shortage is bringing a higher-than-normal number of counterfeit parts into the supply chain. To adequately address the problem, it is important to understand its root causes, exacerbating factors, and how its impact can be avoided.
