July 08--The share price of Camtek Ltd. (Nasdaq: CAMT; TASE:CAMT), managed by chairman and CEO Rafi Amit, rose by more than 22% on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange today. The reason for the surge is the launch of the company's next generation semiconductor inspection and metrology platform, which the company announced will take place at the Semicon West tradeshow, starting in San Francisco tomorrow.

"The Eagle product line is designed to support the fast growing Advanced Packaging market using cutting edge technologies, both software and hardware, that deliver unparalleled 2D and 3D inspection and metrology capabilities on the same platform," the announcement said.

"This new product line will strengthen our leading position in the Semiconductor backend market, taking advantage of our expertise in bump inspection and metrology," said Ramy Langer, vice president and head of Camtek's Semiconductor Division.

"The Advanced Packaging market in particular uses a wide spectrum of bump types and sizes. Our outstanding capabilities in the inspection and metrology of current and next-generation bumps, down to 2Ám, will give our customers a competitive edge in this emerging market. We have already received early orders for the new product from leading Semiconductor device manufacturers. We see this as a vote of confidence in our technology capabilities to deliver fast, accurate and unrivalled 2D and 3D inspection and metrology capabilities, supporting the industry roadmap," Langer added.
