Amtech Systems solar sector subsidiary, Tempress Systems has received an order for a boron diffusion system from a leading Taiwan cell manufacturer.
The company said that the system would be used in an N-type, next generation high efficiency cell production line and the third boron diffusion system supplied to Taiwan-based solar cell producers to date.
Fokko Pentinga, Chief Executive Officer of Amtech said, “We are the industry leaders in boron diffusion used in n-type cell processing with over 800MW installed in production, research and pilot lines. This order further validates that leading solar cell manufacturers are looking to next generation n-type technology solutions to meet the market's need for lower cost and continuously higher efficiency solar cells and that our solar boron diffusion system is considered a high-value technology solution.”
Amtech also noted that it expected N-type diffusion processing technology to play a “significant role in the growing future solar market.”
