it means that the invention applies to all (kinds of) equipment used in the processing or manufacture/manufacturing of semiconductors

your text says "kind of" but it should be "kinds of" and this is maybe superfluous as "all" covers the meaning in general

the "or" differentiates between processing and manufacturing equipment

  -> thanks Phil

agree  D. I. Verrelli: Answered completely. The only other reading I can conceive of is "all kinds of semiconductor processes and semiconductor manufacturing equipment", which would be less likely (and anyway not very different, practically speaking).

  -> thanks D.I.

agree  Tony M: And Asker, do note that 'semiconductor processing equipment' ≠ 'semiconductor equipment' (which might imply equipment merely including / employing semiconductors).
