Semiconductor Prototyping Facility and Cleanroom Services

Semiconductor Design, Fabrication and Testing You Can Trust

Our highly trained staff provides complete semiconductor processing for fabless companies featuring a state-of-the-art cleanroom (Class 100/1000) meeting the industry's most rigorous temperature and humidity requirements.

We offer expertise in thermophotovoltaics, photovoltaics, sensors and semiconductor processing, with services that include:

  • Chip-level design of devices
  • Development of fabrication processes
  • Device characterization and testing
  • Prototyping

Featuring 1000-square-feet of space enabling  precision nanoscale fabrication:

  • Optical lithography
  • Advanced dry etching
  • Thin-film deposition
  • Wet chemical processing
  • Thermal processing
  • Metrology
  • Back-end processing

Extensive capabilities: lithography processes (Karl Suss MA6, Spin Coater), plasma ashing, e-beam and thermal metallization, acid/base/solvent chemistry, metrology, plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (Oxford PlasmaPro 800+),  reactive ion etching (Oxford PlasmaPro NGP80+), and wire and ribbon bonding.

Flexibility: Tailored to be interchangeable with established equipment and processes at the NANO3 user facility at nearby University of California-San Diego

Reliability: Even in the event of equipment interruption, processing will not need to stop.

Cleanroom services are run by experienced scientists in GA's Special Projects Office, whose work covers a wide portfolio of research and development from power systems innovation to maglev transport to lithium battery systems that lead the industry in safety.
