About Us


Based in Silicon Valley, in 2005, the founding members started the development of the core IP and technology of a new thin film deposition system, drawing from their long time experience in the semiconductor and FPD LCD industries. In 2007 a JV was signed with Photon Dynamics, Inc (acquired by Orbotech Ltd, in 2008) and the project moved to its current location is San Jose, California. In 2009, through a partnership with Orbotech Ltd, OLT Solar was formed.

With the global infrastructure and financial backing of Orbotech Ltd., OLT Solar introduced the Aurora PECVD product line in 2010 and started shipping equipment into the high volume manufacturing environment starting in 2011. 

OLT Solar applies its extensive technology and large area industrial processing equipment design know-how into the solar processing photovoltaic industry, focusing on cell efficiency improvement and reduced cost of manufacturing, in order to contribute to the growth of clean and cost effective alternative energy.
