FREMONT, Calif.- July 6, 2004 - Mattson Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: MTSN), a leading supplier of advanced process equipment used to manufacture semiconductors, today announced a major competitive win for its 300 mm RTP systems at one of Japan’s largest chipmakers. Following a head-to-head competitive evaluation, Mattson’s advanced RTP tools were selected for this manufacturer’s logic 300 mm fab in northern Japan. The systems, which have been recently shipped, are the first Mattson 300 mm RTP tools ordered by this customer.

Mattson’s RTP systems demonstrated excellent yield for 90 nm low-temperature processing and have been qualified for 65 nm low-temperature nickel silicide (NiSi) processing. The equipment will be used to manufacture system chips used in automobiles and digital consumer electronics such as DVD recorders, cell phones and digital cameras.

“As one of the world’s ten largest chipmakers, our customer is aggressively seeking RTP equipment that provides the high productivity and superior process performance required to meet the device challenges of its most critical applications,” said Andreas Toennis, vice president and general manager of the Thermal Products Group for Mattson Technology. “After a thorough evaluation, the customer chose our 300 mm RTP systems for their excellence in throughput, temperature profile control and process performance, particularly for advanced applications such as critical soak anneals and low-temperature silicidation. This leading logic chipmaker’s selection of our most advanced RTP tools underscores its confidence in our technologies’ capabilities to meet the 90 nanometer volume production requirements today, as well as address the process development challenges through the 65 nanometer technology node. This new account win further validates Mattson’s strengthening position in the RTP marketplace.”
