SEMI and Solid State Technology Announce the 2015 “Best of West” Award Finalists

ClassOne Technology | June 29, 2015

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Each year at SEMICON West, the largest microelectronics exposition in North America, the “Best of West” awards are presented by Solid State Technology and SEMI. The award was established to recognize new products moving the industry forward with technological developments in the microelectronics supply chain.

The Best of West 2015 Finalists will be displaying their tools on the show floor at Moscone Center from July 14-16:

  • ClassOne Technology: Solstice S4 — Solstice S4 is the first automated plating tool that delivers advanced performance on smaller substrates at affordable prices. Described as “advanced plating for the rest of us,” Solstice is designed specifically for the smaller-substrate users in emerging technologies such as MEMs, LEDs, Power Devices, RF Communications, Interposers, Photonics and Microfluidics. Solstice sets new standards for plating performance and affordability. SouthHall, Booth #2521.
  • National Instruments: NI Semiconductor Test Systems — NI’s Semiconductor Test Systems (STS) feature PXI modular instrumentation and open system design software for semiconductor test environments. Unlike traditional ATE systems that incur costs as old generations of equipment become obsolete, NI STS’ open architecture allows engineers to retain their investments and easily scale. Its compact design eliminates floor space, power, and maintenance costs, and is ideal for characterization and production to decrease time to market. North Hall, Booth #5472.
  • Nordson ASYMTEK: Programmable Tilt + Rotate 5-Axis Fluid Dispenser — With requirements for precision, accuracy, and speed more stringent than ever and pushing the limits of dispensing equipment capabilities, the new programmable Tilt + Rotate 5-Axis Fluid Dispenser solves these problems, achieving unparalleled accuracy and precision in X, Y, and Z axes for thin lines and small dots, to make high-volume manufacturing possible for today’s new products. NorthHall, Booth #5743.

The Best of West Award winner will be announced during SEMICON West ( on Wednesday, July 15, 2015.
