Delray Beach, Florida (MMD Newswire) February 13, 2012 -- Today, RAVE LLC announced receipt of a multi-system purchase order for its Rhazer® haze removal systems from one of the world's leading independent semiconductor device manufacturers.

Rhazer®system technology is a breakthrough dry cleaning process for the non-invasive, through pellicle removal of haze contamination from advanced photomasks. Rhazer® equipment is specifically designed for dedicated operation in the wafer fab to fast-turn haze contaminated reticles from the lithography line avoiding the time consuming return to the mask shop and the CD performance degradation often caused by repeated wet clean processes.

After an extensive in-fab evaluation of the Rhazer® haze removal technology, RAVE's new customer determined the Rhazer® process demonstrated the potential to bring significant value to their lithography operations. This resulted in the placement of a multi-system order to RAVE LLC for the Rhazer® tools. The first system has already been installed and accepted with additional systems scheduled for delivery later this year.

RAVE CEO, Barry Hopkins, stated "Our Rhazer® tools have been operating with great success for some time in world-class device foundries. We are very pleased to have the Rhazer® technology selected for use by one of the semiconductor industries larger high-volume device manufacturers. This collaborative effort continues to validate the significant cost and value contribution potential RAVE LLC products bring to our customers."
