Ultra-Thin Film Technology for
Ultra-High Device Performance

Over 7 billion MEMS devices were
built using MVD technology

Applied Microstructures (AMST) makes technology and equipment used to fabricate microelectronics devices found in smartphones, computers, automobiles, and products that enable the Internet of Things (IoT).

We invented Molecular Vapor Deposition (MVD®). It’s a unique technology platform that deposits high-performance anti-stiction and other protective ultra-thin films with superb precision on applications with miniscule feature sizes.

Molecular Vapor Deposition

Molecular Vapor Deposition (MVD®), invented by AMST, is a patented method of generating low-temperature, vapor deposition films for anti-stiction, hydrophobic, hydrophilic, adhesion, biocompatible, protective, or reactive films.

Applications

From MEMS and microphones, to labs-on-a-chip, more devices than ever are being coated with MVD films. That’s because MVD reliably delivers exceptional conformality, excellent thermal stability and outstanding wear resistance, in a compact tool.

Products

Keeping pace with customers’ film requirements is reflected in AMST’s product family. An installed base of 100+ tools shows how manufacturers are relying on MVD to enable the ultra-high device performance that makes the IoT possible.
