DawnCompany News

Austin, Texas – June 2023 – PulseForge, Inc. and NADA Technologies, Inc. announced today that the companies are collaborating to bring a high-volume, fully-automated photonic debonding solution to the semiconductor industry.

This collaboration brings together two innovative US companies in the semiconductor space. NADAtech is the global leader in tailored wafer automation solutions for semiconductor manufacturing and PulseForge is an industry leader in applied thermal energy.

NADAtech is known for engineering dual and triple functionality into their automation solutions for increased capacity and yield while minimizing their equipment footprint. The integration of PulseForge’s patented Photonic Debonding process introduces a new capability to NADAtech’s product line. The combined offering will significantly reduce the total cost of ownership versus traditional debonding methods while improving yields.

The NADAtech fully automated photonic debonding solution will be ideal for wafer thinning, hybrid bonding and micro-LED transfer applications. In addition, the solution can debond warped wafers without expensive warpage adjustment hardware or process changes, and provides a clean, ash-free process.

“It is great to be working closely with another US innovator in the semiconductor space.” said Jonathan Gibson, CEO of PulseForge, Inc. “This collaboration will provide customers with significantly lower costs for debonding processing while improving yields.”

“NADAtech is excited to partner with PulseForge to bring this new technology to market. We have seen significant interest in the new debonding tool from multiple customers and hope to start product shipments in early 2024. The collaboration will open new backend markets to NADAtech while offering greater efficiency to our customers.” said Tim Ewald, CEO/CTO of NADAtech.
