Singulus reports the sale of an additional TIMARIS deposition machine for the production of MRAM semiconductor chips.
Roland Lacher, CEO of Singulus technologies comments: "At the end of previous year the break-through for TIMARIS machines for TMR applications was achieved. This was accomplished with the first order for thin film heads (write/read heads) placed in December 2005. Overall, including today's orders already the fourth machine is earmarked for delivery. This is a great success, since we were able to show that our machines overcame the high entry barriers of the market and holds up well against the competition as well."
MRAM is a non-volatile storage technology with high reading and writing speed. The MRAM technology has good prospects to become one of the most important semiconductor storage technologies of the futures (so called "universal memory").
