Electronics are requiring greater numbers of specialty semiconductors built on non-leading-edge process nodes. Applied’s ICAPS (IoT, Communications, Automotive, Power and Sensors) group provides materials engineering solutions to customers in these growing markets.
The addition of Picosun’s ALD technology broadens the Applied ICAPS product portfolio and customer engagements. Picosun also brings to Applied deep R&D capabilities, talented teams and strong relationships with leading research institutions and universities throughout the world.
The Picosun team will continue to be based in Finland and will report into Applied’s ICAPS group.
