Home > Press > Nanometrics Wins Integrated Metrology Selection from Leading Japanese Semiconductor Company for New Fab Build-out

Abstract:
Nanometrics Incorporated (Nasdaq: NANO), a leading provider of advanced process control metrology systems, today announced that a leading Japanese semiconductor company has selected its IMPULSE® integrated metrology (IM) solution for process control of advanced chemical mechanical polishing (CMP) applications to be deployed as part of its new fab build-out. The selection expands on the recent order by the same customer for Nanometrics' Lynx™ cluster metrology platform equipped with IMPULSE systems, which was selected for in-line optical critical dimension (OCD) control of etch and lithography applications.
