Business description: Brion provides innovative products and services that will fundamentally improve the manufacturing economics of the global semiconductor industry. An interrelated set of challenges in lithography - the process of transferring circuit design patterns onto silicon wafers - threatens to derail the semiconductor industry from its historical paths of technology improvement and economic growth. The current industry structure, in which chip design, chip manufacturing, and photomask manufacturing remain separate domains of business and technology, exacerbates the problem. Brion Technologies is capitalizing on this historic opportunity by addressing these lithography challenges with disruptive technologies and products. Major customers and distribution partners worldwide are deploying our solutions.
Customers include: Aviza Technology STMicroelectronics ;  Renesas Technology
Partners include: Magma Design Automation STMicroelectronics ;  Dai Nippon Printing ;  Hitachi High-Technologies ;  Nikon
