Photo Mask Service

SilTerra partners with third party photo mask vendors to offer seamless mask making service. The qualified photo mask vendors had been prudently selected by SilTerra after went through rigorous product and process qualification, data checks and inline monitoring to ensure no compromise in mask quality. Mask service qualification covers accurate GDS file processing, precise mask data preparation, OPC conversion validation and zero defect mask manufacturing before deliver photo masks to SilTerra for wafer production used.

As a result of strict photo mask qualification procedure in place , SilTerra can ensure the photo masks ship to the fab are accurately matched and optimized to SilTerra process capabilities, hence attaining repetitive high wafer yield for Customer products.

Below are the qualified Photo Mask vendors for SilTerra technologies :-
