Chrome Photomask Process

Chrome Photomask Process: The process of making a chip begins with the design of the circuit. Circuit designers use advanced design software to generate a pattern layout - a blueprint of the chip. This information is then transferred to a photomask pattern generator, which uses a laser (or an electron beam) to draw the pattern on a quartz plate covered with photoresist. This quartz plate is then developed and etched with chrome, creating the photomask. Please refer to MTI's recommended Photomask process for " Photomask Chemicals " Chrome and Iron Oxide at this site.
