Camtek Selected as Advanced TEM Sample Preparation Solution Provider

MIGDAL HAEMEK, Israel, July 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

Camtek Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: CAMT) ("Camtek" or the "Company"),
announced today that a leading Semiconductor Manufacturer has selected Xact,
Camtek's Advanced Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) sample preparation
solution, enabling material analysis and verification. The system was
installed during the second quarter of 2011.

Shrinking feature dimensions and advances in material complexity require
a scale of analysis only possible through Scanning Transmission Electron
Microscope (STEM) and TEM processes. Sample preparation for the front-end of
the line (FEOL) process monitoring and offline failure analysis has become a
bottleneck. Existing sample preparation solutions are falling short of
meeting the evolving requirements of high resolution and high contrast
imaging and analysis. Camtek's Xact overcomes these limitations by applying
its ground-breaking Adaptive Ion Milling (AIM(TM)) technology, and offers
negligible artifacts and improved throughput.

Mr. Roy Porat, Camtek's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Our
momentum continues through the receipt of an additional strategic order from
a leading customer that testifies to the strong technological advantages
that we have in this area. This order is another important step in our
penetration efforts into the sample preparation market. We believe that over
the coming quarters, we will be able to build on this momentum and continue
to grow and penetrate new customers with the Xact."


Camtek Ltd provides automated solutions dedicated for enhancing
production processes and yield, enabling our customers new technologies in
