SAFC Hitech(TM) Joins Aviza and ST Microelectronics for Solid State Technology ALD Webcast
Date:10/30/2007

ST. LOUIS, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- SAFC Hitech(TM), a focus area of SAFC(R) and part of the Sigma-Aldrich(TM) Corporation (Nasdaq: SIAL), today announced that it will be participating in a webcast, along with representatives from Aviza Technology and ST Microelectronics, to discuss the subject of Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD). In addition, the webcast will address issues surrounding Flash (NAND and NOR) technologies that could be addressed by ALD as the semiconductor industry transitions to the 45nm node and below.

The webcast, in conjunction with Pennwell's Solid State Technology magazine (SST), is being held at 10am Pacific Time/5pm GMT, on Wednesday, October 31st 2007. Participating on behalf of SAFC Hitech will be Dr. Peter Heys, Group Research and Development Director. Also taking part will be Jon Owyang, Director of ALD Product Management, Aviza Technology, Inc., and Mauro Alessandri, FEOL Technology Development and External R&D Program Coordination Manager, ST Microelectronics.

"In addition to addressing Flash and possible ALD solutions relating to that technology, the webcast will also include a presentation on ALD process technology and equipment challenges for both Floating Gate and Trapped Charge architectures," commented the webcast's moderator, SST's Senior Technical Editor, Ed Korczynski. "Advanced materials play a critical role, so we will examine specific precursors that will be required to deposit ALD films, issues related to their development and use, delivery and cleanliness requirements as well as availability, cost and if there are any shortages looming on the horizon."

Commenting on SAFC Hitech's participation in the webcast, Dr. Peter Heys said: "The SST webcast combines the three main elements (chemical supplier, OEM and IDM) that together can collaborate to provide solutions to the challenges of introducing a novel technique, in this case ALD, to a relatively new industrial requirement -- the production of new generation Flash, NOR and NAND memory devices. Discussing the thought processes required to design new molecules suitable to the ALD process and the issues required to be overcome before the new molecule can be effectively and safely introduced to the market place, in an 'acceptable to all' economic format I feel will be of particular interest."

The webcast is open to everyone. A simple registration procedure is required in order to access proceedings on the day. For further information about the webcast, and to register to attend, please log onto: http://sst.pennnet.com/webcast/display_webcast.cfm?id=522

For those who are not able to listen to the live event, the webcast will be archived for 12 months and can be accessed on SST's website: http://sst.pennnet.com
