Lam Research Corporation designs, manufactures, markets, refurbishes, and services semiconductor processing equipments used in the fabrication of integrated circuits. The company provides etch products that remove portions of various films from the wafer in the creation of semiconductor devices. Its etch products include dielectric etch, conductor etch, three-dimensional integrated circuit etch, MEMS devices, CMOS image sensors, and power devices for etching process. The company also offers deposition systems that use chemical vapor deposition (CVD), physical vapor deposition, and electrochemical deposition processes to form transistor, capacitor, and interconnect layers in an integrated circuit; and photoresist strip products to remove photoresist from a wafer’s surface after the photolithographic circuitry patterning process to remove any film residues and particles before proceeding with the next deposition step in the manufacturing process. In addition, it provides single-wafer wet clean and plasma-based bevel clean systems for use in wafer cleaning steps, such as post-etch and post-strip cleans, and pre-diffusion and pre-deposition cleans; and a suite of deposition, strip, and polishing/grinding process equipment solutions for LED manufacturing, primarily for substrates of sapphire, silicon carbide, silicon, gallium arsenide, and gallium nitride. The company offers its products to semiconductor manufacturers in the North America, Korea, Taiwan, Japan, the Asia Pacific, and Europe. Lam Research Corporation was founded in 1980 and is headquartered in Fremont, California.
