GRENOBLE, France -- Following the collapse of PHS MEMS SA, a foundry manufacturer of micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) components, in February, a catalog has been produced for auction of the contents of the company's clean room.
The catalog comprises 250 lots. It includes a Nikon stepper for 8-inch wafers with a reserve price of 150,000 euros (about US$184,000) and a plasma enhanced CVD machine with a reserve price of 30,000 euros (about US$37,000).
Inspection of the lots is due to take place in the company's 1600 square meter clean room in Grenoble on Tuesday June 1 with the auction due to take place on June 2 and June 3.

This would appear to be a conventional auction, which requires either direct attendance or the presence of an agent; unlike the Internet auction of semiconductor equipment being organized on behalf of Micron technologies Inc., which is due to take place later in June.
