CVD Equipment Corporation designs, develops and manufactures customized equipment and process solutions used to develop and manufacture solar, nano and advanced electronic components, materials and coatings for research and industrial applications.

The Company offers a range of chemical vapor deposition, gas control and other equipment, which is used by the customers to research, design and manufacture semiconductors, solar cells, smart glass, carbon nanotubes, nanowires, light emitting diodes (LEDs), micro electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) and industrial coatings, as well as equipment for surface mounting of components onto printed circuit boards. The Company operates in three divisions: CVD/First Nano, Stainless Design Concept (SDC) and Conceptronic/Research. In April 2012, the Company completed the sale of its facility located at 979 Marconi Avenue, Ronkonkoma, New York where their Application Laboratory was located. On April 5, 2013, the Company sold its 50,000 square foot facility located at 1860 Smithtown Avenue, Ronkonkoma, New York.

Operating Divisions

CVD/First Nano is a supplier of chemical vapor deposition systems for use in the research, development and manufacturing of semiconductors, LEDs, carbon nanotubes, nanowires, solar cells and a number of industrial applications. SDC designs and manufactures gas and chemical delivery control systems for the semiconductor fabrication processes, solar cells, LEDs, carbon nanotubes, nanowires, and a number of industrial applications. The SDC products are sold on a stand alone basis, as well as together with the CVD/First Nano systems.

Conceptronic designs and manufactures reflow ovens and rework stations for the printed circuit board assembly and semi-conductor packaging industries. The equipment is designed to melt solder in a controlled process to form connections between components. It creates complete electronic circuits for computers and telecommunication systems, as well as for the automotive and defense industries.

Principal Products

Chemical Vapor Deposition is a process, which passes a gaseous compound over a focused material surface, which is heated to such a degree that the compound decomposes and deposits a desired layer onto substrate material. The Chemical Vapor Deposition systems are complete and include all necessary instrumentation, subsystems and components and include process control software. The systems offered by the Company includes Silicon, Silicon-Germanium, Silicon Dioxide, Silicon Nitride, Polysilicon, Liquid Phase Epitaxial, Metalorganic Chemical Vapor Deposition, Carbon Nanotubes and Nanowires, Solar Cell research and Solar material quality control.

The Chemical Vapor Deposition systems are available in a range of models, which could be used in laboratory research and production. The models are offered with total system automation, a microprocessor control system by which the user can measure, predict and regulate gas flow, temperature, pressure and chemical reaction rates, thus controlling the process in order to improve the quality of the materials produced.

The Rapid Thermal Processing (RTP) is used heat semiconductor materials to elevated temperatures of 1,000 degrees Celsius at rapid rates of up to 200 degrees Celsius per second. The Company’s RTP systems are offered for implant activation, oxidation, silicide formation and many other processes. The Company offers systems that can operate both at atmospheric or reduced pressures.

The Annealing and Diffusion Furnaces is used for diffusion, oxidation, implant anneal, solder reflow, solar cell manufacturing and other processes. The systems are normally operated at atmospheric and/or reduced pressure with gaseous atmospheres related to the process. An optional feature of the system allows for the heating element to be moved away from the process chamber allowing the wafers to rapidly cool or be heated in a controlled environment.

The Ultra-high Purity Gas and Liquid Control Systems, which includes gas cylinder storage cabinets, custom gas and chemical delivery systems, gas and liquid valve manifold boxes and gas isolation boxes, provide safe storage and handling of pressurized gases and chemicals. Its system design allows for automatic or manual control from both a local and remote location.

The Quartz ware is used in its equipment and other customer tools. The Company also provides repair and replacement of existing quartz ware. Convection Furnaces is used by the printed circuit board assembly and semiconductor packaging industries.

The Reflow Furnaces and Rework Stations provided for the printed circuit board and surface mount technology industries. Its equipment is designed to melt solder in a controlled process to form superior connections between components, creating complete electronic circuits for computers and telecommunication systems, as well as for the automotive and defense industries.
