New agreement provides Japanese market with greater access to Entegris technology

Entegris, Inc., the materials integrity management company, and Dainippon Ink and Chemicals, one of Japan’s most diversified chemical companies, today announced a new patent licensing agreement.

Under the new agreement, DIC will be licensed to make, use and sell integrated circuit (IC) trays, which employ Entegris’ patented design. The IC trays are used to protect and transport integrated circuits for the semiconductor industry.

"This license agreement with DIC is a significant one for Entegris," said Michael Wright, Entegris’ Microelectronics Group president. "Through existing supply chains, licensing this patent provides the industry with greater access to our innovative technology. DIC has an impressive customer list and strong reputation in the market, we look forward to a productive and profitable relationship together."

Under terms of the licensing agreement, DIC will have exclusive license – with the exceptions of Entegris, its affiliates and agents – to make, use and sell the licensed IC tray with self-aligning pocket, designed by Entegris, in Japan. The agreement also states that DIC will have sublicense rights throughout Asia Pacific and a non-exclusive license to make, use and sell the licensed trays throughout the rest of the world.

Entegris has 35 years of experience supplying products to protect and transport critical materials in the semiconductor and other key technology-driven industries. The company’s IC trays are designed to bring benefits to the end-user by providing superior IC protection while minimizing shipping and storage costs.
