30 /PRNewswire/ -- Vertex Pharmaceuticals Incorporated (NASDAQ: VRTX) and Polygen Molecular Simulations Inc.
In addition, this collaboration will allow us to play an important role in developing new software tools with Polygen Molecular Simulations, reducing our needs for in-house software development.
Savage, Polygen Molecular Simulations' president and CEO.
Under the terms of the agreement, Vertex will have special access to Polygen Molecular Simulations' computational chemistry and molecular modeling software over a 10-year period.
Polygen Molecular Simulations, founded in 1985, is a leading supplier of molecular modeling software products in the pharmaceutical, chemical and materials science marketplace.
introduces the Polygen Centura, its latest 200mm and 300mm systems for the deposition of polysilicon films, combining advanced CVD (chemical vapor deposition) processing technology with high productivity, low consumables cost and easy maintainability.
The new Polygen systems extend Applied Materials' technical superiority in polysilicon deposition while reducing operating cost, enabling it to compete directly with batch furnaces for mainstream poly applications," said Paul Meissner, general manager of Thermal Processing and Gate Products at Applied Materials.
The Polygen systems offer control of polysilicon grain size and orientation, enabling chip manufacturers to tailor dopant distribution according to device requirements.
The Polygen systems' robust chamber design, based on Applied Materials' production-proven xZ chamber architecture, enables controllable temperature uniformity for extremely uniform films.
