SAN JOSE, Calif., July 10 -- Silicon Valley Group Lithography Systems has received an order to deliver its Micrascan 193 step-and-scan lithography system to Cypress Semiconductor in San Jose, Calif. by the end of this year's third quarter, said Silicon Valley Group. Cypress Semiconductor wants the 193-nm system so it can begin processing development work at the 120-nm node by the third quarter of 2001, the company said. Confidence in our 193 nm lithography solutions continues to build as evidenced by this order from another new customer, explained John Shamaly, president of SVG Lithography Systems. Once again SVG finds itself well-placed to help customers transition to next-generation technologies. By establishing and maintaining our confidence in the all optical roadmap, we are able to offer the cutting-edge lithographic solutions that the semiconductor industry demands. Cypress Semiconductor provides integrated circuit solutions to the communications, telecommunications, computation, consumer products, and industrial-control markets.
