SPTS Technologies Ltd
SPTS TECHNOLOGIES, an Orbotech company, is a leading supplier of wafer processing equipment used by the world’s leading semiconductor device manufacturers.

This Queen’s Award for Innovation recognises the success of SPTS’s 300mm Sigma® fxP PVD system developed at the company’s headquarters in Newport, Wales.  The Sigma® fxP is a physical vapour deposition (PVD) system used to deposit thin metal layers onto semiconductor wafers to form electrical connections inside each of the hundreds or thousands of chips on each wafer. Unique (patented) features of the Sigma® 300mm PVD system includes a multi-wafer degas chamber that delivers twice the wafer throughputs as competing systems. SPTS’s Sigma® PVD system for fan-out wafer level packaging (FOWLP) of semiconductors is used by all the top FOWLP companies in the world and deployed in the world’s leading smartphones.

SPTS Technologies employs around 300 people in Newport with another 200 employees in 11 overseas locations.
