Completion of "Development Center"

In order to further accelerate our new product development, Ferrotec Ceramics Corporation announces that the construction of our new Development Center in Hakusan-shi, Ishikawa has now completed.

Our Scope

Ishikawa Factory manufactures ceramic substrates for Probe Cards used in the wafer inspection process, which is a part of the front-end process of semiconductor manufacturing. Advanced technologies for miniaturization and high integration used in advanced semiconductors for mobile devices and automotive require new types of ceramic substrates for Probe Cards.

In response to these needs, we constructed a "Development Center" at the "Yamajima Industrial Park" near our current Ishikawa Factory to develop and manufacture ceramic substrate for new Probe Card. We also consolidated existing development functions dispersed in the Kansai Factory in Amagasaki-shi, Hyogo and in the Ishikawa Factory to accelerate the development of new materials and new technologies, and made it a development base to create new products.

Development Center Overview
