Lam Research Corporation designs, manufactures, markets and services semiconductor processing equipment used in the fabrication of integrated circuits. The Company's products are currently used in the front-end of the wafer processing manufacturing cycle: etch, CMP, and post-CMP clean. The Company's family of etch systems incorporates plasma technologies designed to meet both current and future needs. The Company offers 200-milimeter and 300-milimeter Teres CMP integrated polishing and cleaning systems with Linear Planarization Technology (LPT), which uses a high-speed belt instead of the rotating table used in conventional polishers. The Company provides the Synergy Integra, which incorporates advanced cleaning technology with a platform that integrates polisher and cleaner.
