In a milestone for the global semiconductor industry, Multibeam Corp. today introduced the MB platform, a first-of-a-kind Multicolumn E-Beam Lithography (MEBL) to make chip factories better.

Their new lithography system — essential for printing patterns on chips — is a system built for mass production. The fully automated precision-patterning technology will be used for rapid prototyping, advanced packaging, high-mix production, chip ID, compound semiconductors, and other applications.

The company aims to bring a renaissance to a decades-old technology called lithography, which defines the way a chip designed is printed on a chip. Multibeam’s founders said this is like having the speed of a printing press, or maybe a 3D printer, but with the custom flexibility and adaptability of a pencil.

SkyWater Technology will receive the first system and will use it for early concept prototyping and rapid production of microchips, said David K. Lam, CEO and chairman of Multibeam, and Ken MacWilliams, president of Santa Clara, California-based Multibeam, in an interview with VentureBeat. Skywater builds both defense and commercial applications in the U.S. Skywater does over a thousand projects a year with Google.
