|YAMAMOTO-MS is proud to introduce our partner, LAAS in France.|
The Laboratory of Analysis and Architecture of Systems (LAAS) is one of the major CNRS laboratories linked with Institute for Engineering and Systems Sciences (INSIS) and the Institute of Information Sciences and their Interactions (INS2I)
Located at Toulouse, LAAS is associated with the 6 founding members of the University of Toulouse : T3PS, INSAT, INPT, UT2J, UT1C, ISAE. This means that CNRS researchers and faculty members work closely together to cover the various research topics addressed by LAAS|
This platform takes part of the french research network called RENATECH which gather 7 technological and research facilities (BTR) in the field of micro and nanotechnologies. In April 2007, a 1500 m2 clean room (Grade 10.000 and 100) was built at the LAAS-CNRS science center with the funding of the Midi-pyrenees regional council, the CNRS (National Center of Scientific Research), the French National Research Agency (ANR), the BTR Network and Affiliated Club of LAAS.
These pooled facilities allow design, development and integration of new devices for energy management, telecommunications, chemistry and biology, to the production of demonstrators on the basis of flexible chains.
Each year, The laboratory takes care of more than 70 internal and 80 external projects (academic and industrial).
Yamamoto’s tools are included into a specific area of the LAAS clean room (1500 m2) dedicated to Electroplating field. Two people are working at full time in this area and do electroplating processes on more than 850 wafers per year. They also take care of bath analysis, maintenance of equipment and technical support to researchers. In addition of 3 Yamamoto tools, the electroplating area also provide 4 manual and 4 industrials tools. There is also a specific area dedicated to the chemical analysis of electroplating baths in order to ensure maximum quality of plating.
We are able to plate different kind of materials from 0,5μm to 500 μm thickness.
