Lam Research Corporation is a leading supplier of wafer fabrication equipment to the worldwide semiconductor industry. Company products include etch systems and chemical mechanical planarization (CMP) with integrated post-CMP clean systems, which perform critical processes for manufacturing today's most advanced chips. Lam also leverages its etch, CMP, and clean process expertise to develop intellectual property that advances semiconductor manufacturing. Lam's etch systems shape the microscopic conductive and dielectric layers into circuits that define a chip's final use and function. The Company's CMP systems ensure that the surface of the wafer on which the chips are being formed remains flat after each layer of material is added and clean for the next layer.
