MICROTEST and Encapsulix: Innovative synergy for the semiconductor industry

a French distributor of equipment for the semiconductor industry, has just added Gardanne-based SME Encapsulix to its network of partners.


. This collaboration aims to strengthen MICROTEST’s expertise and services, while integrating Encapsulix’s innovative technologies in the field of atomic layer deposition.

A strategic alliance for innovation

MICROTEST, committed to constantly improving its value-added services, has chosen to expand its network of partners by joining forces with Encapsulix. The Gardanne-based company is renowned for its expertise in atomic layer deposition, a revolutionary technology that accelerates the production of protective oxides more efficiently.

Encapsulix's advanced technology: an asset to the industry

Encapsulix has developed innovative machines for producing thin oxide films by atomic layer deposition (ALD) twenty times faster than conventional processes. This technological breakthrough offers a valuable solution for effectively protecting displays, particularly in the field of augmented reality.

Jacques Kools, head of Encapsulix, emphasizes the importance of this collaboration: “Increasing throughput reduces the price per square metre. ALD then becomes an economically viable technology for new applications.”
