Applied Materials, Inc. Company Profile
Applied Materials might be called Acquired Materials because recent acquisitions are key to its future. With the acquisition of Applied Films, Applied Materials moved into the market for equipment used in making solar power cells. Then its move to acquire Tokyo Electron (the deal, announced in 2013, is still pending) would combine the two biggest companies that make the equipment that makes semiconductors and other electronic components. Applied's machines vie for supremacy in many segments of the chip-making process, including deposition (layering film on wafers), etching (removing portions of chip material to allow precise construction of circuits), and semiconductor metrology and inspection equipment.
