Lithoz GmbH, Vienna, Austria, has delivered the UK’s first CeraFab Multi 2M30 machine to Compound Semiconductor Applications (CSA) Catapult, a government-backed research facility in Newport, Wales.

The CeraFab Multi 2M30 is an Additive Manufacturing machine that uses a Vat Photopolymerisation (VPP) process which the company calls Lithography-based Ceramic Manufacturing (LCM). The machine has two separate vats which can combine multiple materials –including ceramic, metal and polymer – within a single layer and can vary the material composition layer-by-layer.

“The CeraFab Multi 2M30 3D printer, part of the DER Investment in state-of-the-art equipment, is a valuable addition to our advanced semiconductor integration and packaging capability,” stated Dr Jayakrishnan Chandrappan, Head of Packaging at CSA Catapult, which helps optimise advanced electronic systems and delivers industrial research organisation to benefit companies in the UK. “This acquisition will help us develop novel 3D-printed multi-material parts for high-power and high-frequency microelectronics packages, and the multi-material printing facilities will drive energy-efficient, compact and affordable packaging.”

CSA Catapult is a non-profit organisation focused on bringing compound semiconductor applications to life in three key areas: the road to Net Zero, future telecoms and intelligent sensing. The organisation works within the Power Electronics, RF & Microwave and Photonics technology areas and has an interest in Advanced Packaging. The organisation exists to help the UK compound semiconductor industry grow and collaborates across the UK and internationally.
