>> The development of the ECPRTM technology started at the Lund Institute of Technology in 2001, based on new ideas for nano-scale electro-deposition of metal patterns.
In 2002 the first proof-of-concept was achieved and the development of processes and equipment was continued. The company Replisaurus Technologies was founded and the activities were moved to Kista in the Stockholm area. Collaboration was started with the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and through this collaboration the R&D efforts related to the ECPRTM method continued in the Electrum laboratory.
In 2006 the company Replisaurus has attracted as investors two large venture capital funds, Wellington partners and Northzone. Since then the company has further attracted individuals with extensive industry experience allowing the company to move to the next stage.
In 2008 Replisaurus acquired SET - Smart Equipment Technology, based in Saint Jeoire, France. SET has a long history in the development and production of high-precision device bonders, including chip-to-wafer tools for 3D integration. SET provides proven manufacturing experience and facilities, and its technology plays an important role in Replisaurus volume manufacturing plans.
In 2009, Replisaurus Mastering is established on Minatec’s site at Grenoble, France, to develop the master, i.e., the electrode carrying the negative of the copper patterns to be deposited, in collaboration with CEA-Leti. This setup allows development and small series manufacturing of the master to industry standards.
In 2010 the first ECPR tool is sold to CEA Leti for installation in its extensive cleanroom facilities. The machine will be used to further develop the process and master technology. The facility in Grenoble allows Replisaurus to demo ECPRTM in a state-of-the-art cleanroom environment.
