Entegris Acquires Global Measurement Technologies Inc.


Reading time ( words)

Entegris, Inc. announces it has acquired Global Measurement Technologies Inc. (GMTI), an analytical instrument provider for critical processes in semiconductor production, and its manufacturing partner Clean Room Plastics, Inc. Located in Chandler, Arizona, GMTI is now part of the Advanced Materials Handling (AMH) Division of Entegris.

GMTI is a market leader in the design and production of high precision analytical instruments for Chemical Mechanical Planarization (CMP) slurries and formulated cleaning chemistries used in the semiconductor manufacturing process. GMTI’s technology is designed to ensure precise consistency of complex blended chemistries to enable high yields in the CMP and formulated cleaning processes.

“The acquisition of GMTI enhances Entegris’ position as the premier supplier for yield enhancement solutions for the semiconductor market. Greater materials intensity and greater materials purity will be the primary defining factors of the next generation of semiconductor performance.” said Bertrand Loy, President and CEO of Entegris. “With the combination of GMTI’s cutting-edge measurement systems and our extensive portfolio of filtration and other contamination control solutions, we bring a complete suite of solutions that allow our customers to achieve process stability and high yields in the complex CMP environment.”

“We are very excited about joining Entegris. The combined portfolio, global infrastructure and operational resources will allow us to deliver significant value to our customers.,” said Bryan LaFlam, President of Global Measurement Technologies Inc.

Entegris acquired Global Measurement Technologies Inc. for an aggregate amount of approximately $36 million in cash, subject to customary post-closing adjustments.

Kirigami Inspires New Method for Wearable Sensors

10/22/2019 | University of Illinois
As wearable sensors become more prevalent, the need for a material resistant to damage from the stress and strains of the human body’s natural movement becomes ever more crucial. To that end, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have developed a method of adopting kirigami architectures to help materials become more strain tolerant and more adaptable to movement.

Brittle Pals Bond for Flexible Electronics

05/13/2019 | Rice University
Mixing two brittle materials to make something flexible defies common sense, but Rice University scientists have done just that to make a novel dielectric. Dielectrics are the polarized insulators in batteries and other devices that separate positive and negative electrodes. Without them, there are no electronic devices.

Beyond Scaling: An Electronics Resurgence Initiative

06/05/2017 | DARPA
The Department of Defense’s proposed FY 2018 budget includes a $75 million allocation for DARPA in support of a new, public-private “electronics resurgence” initiative. The initiative seeks to undergird a new era of electronics in which advances in performance will be catalyzed not just by continued component miniaturization but also by radically new microsystem materials, designs, and architectures.
