Semiconductors are critical enablers at the heart of a vast range of electronic devices and systems, including smartphones, servers and telecommunications infrastructures. Innovations in semiconductor design and manufacturing are driving new, disruptive technologies, such as 5G, the internet of things, artificial intelligence, electric vehicles, and advanced defence and security applications.
Element Six provides an extensive portfolio of high-quality synthetic diamond solutions, supporting the semiconductor and electronics manufacturing value chains at every stage, from “front end” wafer fabrication, “back end” assembly, packaging and testing, to final electronic device production.
Our diamond-enabled thermal management solutions improve the reliability of mission-critical, high-power density RF amplifiers, enabling testing and inspection of processed wafers and semiconductor chips. Our high-performance diamond grits, powders and wire drawing die are integral to the cutting and polishing of semiconductor wafers and the hard optical materials used in smart electronics. Device assembly and integration require precision machining of printed circuit boards and a variety of metal, glass and ceramic materials - our single crystal and polycrystalline diamond ranges for precision machining tools provide the quality and reliability expected by the world-leading industrial manufactures of consumer electronics.
With a wide range of synthetic diamond solutions, decades of technical expertise, scale capabilities, and a collaborative approach to material development, Element Six is uniquely equipped to enable semiconductor manufacturers to optimise their products and overcome even their most demanding process challenges.
