Crocus Nano Electronics JV Gets Cleanroom Certification

July 30, 2014

Crocus Nano Electronics (CNE), the joint venture founded by Crocus Technology and RUSNANO, reported that it has successfully passed certification of its cleanroom in Moscow (Russia) according to ISO 14644-1 requirements.

According to a media release, the cleanroom is certified as state of the art class 1,000 (ISO 6) in the production area. The cleanroom is ready for equipment installation and forms the heart of the first 300mm wafer fab in Russia, which will be capable of processing up to 1,000 wafers per week.

"Our cleanroom certification is a very important milestone in the preparation of our fab. Equipment hook-up is expected to occur in the next quarter and we expect to begin process qualification of our fab equipment in September 2014. The achievement of this milestone is also attributed to our general contractor, Faeth, who completed the facilities and cleanroom works and has been awarded the hook-up contract as well," said Mark Dydyk, CEO of CNE.
