Over the 3 decades, Benchmark Technologies has built a solid reputation as a leading supplier of test reticles, photomasks, and related services for virtually all aspects of lithographic and process evaluation. Our test reticle products are used by lithography engineers in the semiconductor, disc drive, MEMS and photonics industries to monitor equipment and process performance. Our Phase Shift Focus Monitor and Universal Matching Reticles both have a significant installed base in wafer fabrication facilities in all regions of the world. Both of these products are recognized as industry standards.

At Benchmark we also specialize in providing CAD and data preparation services for companies and universities requiring conventional photomask and reticle fabrication services. We provide a turnkey service leveraging our extensive knowledge of photomask manufacturing equipment and processes. Many of our commercial customers choose to outsource all or part of this activity to Benchmark as part of their operating model rather than staff this internally. Our university clients also enjoy the advantage of having our experts review their inputs to help them avoid potentially costly errors.

Our expertise in CAD design and photomask manufacturing and understanding of processing technology has also led to the development of mask products that provide technical advantages for users. One example is our GaAs Mask™ technology that offers the user a significant improvement is print resolution for isolated trenches. Another example is our GrayPix™ technology which allows users create desired resist profiles through the use of our digital grayscale design methodology. 

Benchmark Technologies also has expanded its offering beyond test reticles and conventional photomasks over the past decade. By coupling Benchmark’s unique expertise in developing a successful fabrication supply chain with the precision patterning infrastructure of the semiconductor industry, we are often able to find a fabrication solution for our customers that may not be available from any single point supplier. Silicon and glass replication masters, nano-imprint stamps, digital grayscale masks and filters, stage calibration masters and machined photomasks are just a few examples of the types of custom fabrication projects we manage. Benchmark’s expertise and solution-minded creativity assists our customers through every step necessary for transforming ideas into unique, leading-edge products.
