Paper Abstract

This paper will summarize the results of the seventh annual mask industry assessment survey. This year there were 12 respondents. The specific responses from the participants have been kept confidential by having the participants send their responses to Arthur Anderson & Company prior to data evaluation. This year we will report the following information: total shipments, total customer returns, mask survival rate, delivery performance, average throughput time and safety records. The data reported will be for the period of 3Q98 through 2Q98. Additionally, we will present any trends that may be apparent in the data. This year's participants are Align-Rite, Dai Nippon Printing, IBM Essex Junction, Photronics/Toppan Texas, Compugraphics, DuPont Photomasks, Northrup-Grumman, Infineon, Taiwan Mask Corporation (TMC), Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation (TSMC) and Innova. In order to maintain some consistency, the format that has been used from past years will be maintained when possible.
