Nanometrics Announces Launch of its Mosaic II Overlay Metrology System and Selection by Leading Asian Customer

Milpitas, CA | Posted on February 28th, 2011

"Nanometrics has shipped over 500 overlay metrology systems, beginning with its first tool twenty-five years ago, and has been a leading provider of overlay metrology systems from technology nodes of over 1 micron to the current 2x nm applications. With the launch of the Mosaic II, Nanometrics extends its role as an innovator in the field of overlay metrology, supporting advanced lithography process control, including double patterning processes used on today's most advanced devices," commented David Doyle, vice president and business unit manager of Nanometrics. "We continue to strengthen our product offerings in this important market with a major Asian customer selecting the Mosaic II system for production line monitoring of their most challenging devices."

The Mosaic II is the latest overlay metrology system in a series of products designed as part of Nanometrics' Lynx™ cluster metrology platform. Combining Mosaic II with IMPULSE® modules onto a Lynx metrology cluster, we offer our customers a more complete solution for advanced lithography control. This configuration would enable image-based overlay, diffraction-based overlay (DBO) and optical critical dimension (OCD) measurements, providing the lowest cost of ownership in the industry for lithography process control metrology. Earlier generation Caliper Mosaic tools can be field upgraded to Mosaic II capability, offering Nanometrics' customers the most cost-effective path to leading edge performance.

To learn more about the Mosaic II, Lynx cluster metrology, and Nanometrics process control metrology solutions, visit Nanometrics at SPIE Advanced Lithography, San Jose Convention Center, March 1st-2nd.
