Group/Division

ADE (PWG/WS/FV) group develops systems that help enable 1X nm design rule wafer geometry control for both patterned and unpatterned wafers.

The PWG (Pattern Wafer Geometry) system and WS (WaferSight) tools are built on the production-proven platforms.

PWG is a single-tool solution for stress-induced wafer shape changes, shape-induced overlay, wafer thickness variation and front- and back-side topography. PWG enables faster process ramp, overlay control, litho focus window control and in-line process monitoring for processes such as thin films, etch, CMP and RTP.

WaferSight is a high precision high accuracy bare wafer measurement system. That is primarily used for quality control metrology for advanced silicon wafers, measuring flatness requirements for today's most stringent specifications. From WS data, edge to edge surface height topography data can be used to monitor process induced geometry, shape, flatness and edge roll off.

FabVision is an automated defect data analysis module and data management system that helps wafer supplier fabs monitor their processes, and identify excursions using inspection and metrology data. Featuring easy recipe creation and integration with defect inspectors and metrology systems.
