Competitive Strategies in Technology Management
Novellus Systems Inc. design, manufacture, market and service semiconductor capital equipment systems. Their Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) equipment is used for placing layers of either insulating or conductive material on silicon wafers, so multiple levels of circuitry can be connected. One of the major strengths of their CVD equipment is that it can process five to seven wafers at a time, compared to most other CVD systems that can only do one.
