The University of Arkansas hires Deposition Technology Ltd. of Dalrada Corporation to build a plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition tool

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dalrada Financial Corporation (OTCQB: DFCO) (“Dalrada”) announced today that its subsidiary Deposition Technology (“DepTec”) has been awarded a contract by the University of Arkansas to build a deposition system that will ultimately help to enable an uncomplicated processing and efficient way to mass manufacture SiC devices and circuits.

The purchase was made possible by DepTec’s partner, CSI Semiconductor Solutions Ltd., and the machine itself – a Novellus C1 PECVD system – will be used to deposit insulating layers critical to the silicon carbide chip manufacturing process.

A well-known workhorse in the semiconductor world, the Novellus system is a stable and reliable platform that is being remanufactured to meet the university’s unique specifications, particularly the new Multi-User Silicon Carbide (MUSiC) research and manufacturing the campus facility.

A key mission of the facility is to bridge the gap between basic research and mass production by offering industry-standard prototyping. The Novellus C1 will play a crucial role in achieving this mission.

Commenting on the new deposition tool, John Ransom, Managing Director of the MUSiC Research and Fabrication Facility, said: “We are pleased to announce that with the purchase of the Novellus Concept 1 from DepTec and CSI Semiconductor Solutions, MUSiC is on track to achieve industry compatible to provide functions.”

DepTec Director Rob MacKenzie shared Ransom’s sentiment and is excited about the project and its importance to the future of DepTec design-in control improvements at this cornerstone of the deposition arena.”
