About Us
Our patented technologies significantly enhance the speed, reliability, and cost-effectiveness of process engineering equipment and lab-to-fab solutions. Now, engineers at any company can modify materials, surfaces, and interfaces to develop breakthrough technologies that improve people’s everyday lives.
Who We Are

For over 40 years, YES (Yield Engineering Systems, Inc.) has been at the leading edge of material modification and surface enhancement solutions. Starting out as a small, R&D-focused company making lab tools, YES has transformed itself into a trusted manufacturer of extremely reliable, high-value, high-volume manufacturing processing equipment. Energized by a new executive team, we are building upon our decades of learning and our long-standing reputation for reliability and technical expertise. Our systems and technical solutions are the preferred choice in multiple growing high-tech markets including semiconductor, display and life sciences – and by several of the world’s best and most innovative companies.

To create the next wave of technology advances, our customers must transform the materials and surfaces used in their products by implementing novel clean, coat and cure process steps. These transformations not only make new products possible, they also improve manufacturability – allowing engineering breakthroughs to become production realities. YES is committed to developing innovative materials and surface technology solutions that add the greatest value to our customers’ manufacturing processes by lowering their cost, increasing yield and maximizing reliability. We provide a broad portfolio of industry-leading, production-proven solutions to meet these challenges.

Our Cure systems, which include YES’s flagship Verta™- family, use vacuum technology to outgas solvents thoroughly and strengthen bonds, providing superior reliability in just half the time of atmospheric cure. Our Coat systems – EcoCoat™ and the new StrataCoat™ – transform a surface by applying a layer just one molecule thick. This can make the surface hydrophobic such as for microfluidic applications, or adhesive to hold semiconductor photoresist, optical film, or DNA for genetic sequencing. And our Clean technology harnesses the power of plasma to prepare a substrate for processing without damaging sensitive electronics.

Headquartered in a state-of-the art facility located in Fremont, California, with a growing global presence, YES is positioned to be where our customers need us. By delivering scalability, performance, reliability and trust to our partners worldwide, we are committed to enabling them to create the leading-edge products that will drive the next generation of technology breakthroughs – from cellphones and IoT devices, to AI and virtual reality, to diagnostic testing and genetic sequencing – that will power the future.

Our Mission

Much of the most important innovation in the life sciences, emerging technologies, advanced semiconductor packaging, and other industries will involve breakthrough technologies made possible by modifying materials, surfaces, and interfaces at the nanoscale.

At YES, our mission has been to transform the speed, reliability, and cost-effectiveness of process engineering equipment and solutions to serve customer needs for modified materials, surfaces, and interfaces from lab to fab. With our patented technologies, enterprises and startups can practice agile innovation, modifying materials and surfaces to create breakthrough new products.

How We Do It

Through patents such as “Vapor Deposition System, YES-1224P,” YES has completely reimagined process engineering solutions for the modern world. Consider that any company can be agile when using, for instance, YES VertaCure systems to:

  • Increase process speeds for typical curing applications by 50% or more
  • Improve reliability significantly over atmospheric curing systems
  • Conserve valuable fab real estate by attaining throughput goals with fewer systems

Additionally, the YES equipment portfolio offers solutions to inject much greater speed, reliability, and cost-effectiveness into the entire process engineering life cycle. YES systems can be configured for almost any current and emerging use case.

Clean Manufacturing from Lab to Fab
On top of the speed, reliability, and cost benefits of using YES equipment and solutions, our customers and partners can also practice much cleaner manufacturing. For instance, YES coating products use 99% fewer hazardous chemicals (via a proprietary YES method) than traditional wet coating methods. The benefits of much improved clean manufacturing with YES equipment and solutions become greatly magnified with high-volume manufacturing at companies throughout the world.
Global Growth
The YES Global Partner Network continues to thrive in EMEA and APAC. Recently, in a joint partnership with ICONNICS, Inc. and Protec Co., Ltd., YES launched a new Customer Development and Demo Center in Incheon, Korea. More Customer Development and Demo Centers will be launched in the coming months in EMEA and APAC to help companies accelerate their proof of concept or prototype. These YES Centers may also be contracted for Manufacturing as a Service (MaaS) to produce modified materials and surfaces as needed for modern agile manufacturing workflows.
