Newsletters - July 1999
Anniversary
SGT has now been in business since 1984. It seems like only yesterday that Jim Savage came back from Fairchild in California and set up the business in the Semicomplex premises in the old Singer building in Clydebank. Semicomplex and the Singer building are no more but SGT is still here - we must be doing something right. Jim now tells us that his second choice business was to open an American style pizza parlour. Silicon Glen Pizzas?

We will be celebrating the company's 15th birthday on 1st August 1999. No doubt our 'celebration' will be in the local Pizza Hut to remind Jim of what might have been.

New Products
We are pleased to inform you that we have new products to offer you:

Trebor
unveiled a CMP slurry pump at Semicon West. The pump has been specifically designed to avoid the inherent problems in pumping slurries.

Chang-Min Tech's 4-point probe systems were developed in conjunction with the Korean Institute of Standards.
These systems which are extensively used in Korea can be either manual or fully automatic. They really do look very impressive; simple and elegant - an unusual combination for wafer fab equipment.

Control of chamber cleaning
Control of power coupling into plasma
Endpoint detection
Layer resolution
Spatial resolution
Reduction of test and monitor wafers
Detection of tool failure
Arcing detection


Personnel Changes
