Novati strengthens position in 2.5D / 3D market
Ziptronix Inc., provider of patented, low-temperature direct bonding technology for 3D integration, has been acquired by Tezzaron Semiconductor Corporation and Novati Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tezzaron, as a next step toward the acceleration of 3D integration. As a key part of the agreement, Ziptronix sold its 3D IC development lab to Tezzaron, to be operated by Novati Technologies.
Due to widespread adoption of direct bonding in volume manufacturing, Ziptronix no longer has to dedicate its resources to supporting a lab for commercialization of its patented ZiBond® and DBI® technologies. Tezzaron will use the facility to support development and manufacturing of its rapidly growing advanced memory products. The deal includes a strategic agreement with Tezzaron that provides Ziptronix's lab customers continued access to the facility to perform their advanced development work.
