Miniaturization of semiconductor devices continues as the increasing use of AI, IoT, and next-generation communication standard 5G and the advancement of autonomous driving technology are expected to bring further demand increase and performance boost for semiconductors. In the given situation, the market is increasingly demanding a stable supply of high-performance, high-quality and high-purity semiconductor materials.
Fujifilm has research, development, manufacturing and marketing bases in countries/regions including Japan, the US, Taiwan, South Korea, and Belgium to globally supply a broad range of cutting-edge semiconductor materials including photoresists, developers, CMP slurries, high-purity solvents and image sensor materials.
Through this investment, Fujifilm is expanding the facilities for development, manufacturing and quality assurance of cutting-edge semiconductor materials at FEUS’s facilities in Arizona and Rhode Island.
At the Arizona location, new buildings will be constructed to boost the development of CMP slurries and high-purity solvents. At the Rhode Island location, the production facilities will be expanded to manufacture advanced NTI solvents, supporting market needs for greater purification.
