ASDevices Lands Major Project for UMC in Singapore

ASDevices, a manufacturer and leading innovative technology developer in the field of ultra-trace process gas chromatography, has been awarded a major contract in Singapore with United Microelectronics Corporation (UMC), a world-renowned semiconductor foundry company. The project relies on multiple ASDevices gas chromatographs to monitor the quality of the gas used in semiconductor device manufacturing. 

This is one of many contracts awarded to ASDevices this year in the semiconductor market – a reflection of how clients have come to recognize the quality and performance of ASDevices products. The company’s market ascension is fuelled by multiple innovations such as its highly sensitive and patented Enhanced Plasma Discharge (EPD) technology, its purged lip sealing valve (PLSV) and its advanced signal processing algorithms – all made possible by the expertise and know-how of the ASDevices team. ASDevices also introduced an innovative gas calibration system (GCS) that allows users to calibrate their instruments very accurately at only a few parts per billion.

“ASDevices has become the market reference,” says Frank Zhu, the company’s VP Asia. “We’ve worked with reputed metrology institutes to validate our performance, and our hard work is now rewarded through this contract and others to come.”

“The ASDevices team has been revolutionizing the market for over three decades,” explains ASDevices President André Lamontagne. “Back in the 90s, our CEO/CTO, Yves Gamache, invented the first plasma detector, which became the reference for ultra-trace measurement of N­2 and Ar. Next came the invention of innovative chromatographic valve technologies, which improved the performance and long-term reliability of ultra-trace chromatographs. ASDevices is the fruition of more than 30 years of continuous improvement from Gamache and his team.”

“We’re very proud of our accomplishments and of our emerging status as the market reference,” adds Yves Gamache, CEO/CTO, ASDevices. “In the past few years, we’ve developed technologies that are now at the heart of the hydrogen market revolution, including the world’s first process-oriented GC solution to measure trace impurities in fuel-grade hydrogen. This unprecedented hydrogen purity analysis solution is now used in many installations around the world.”
