SK hynix Semiconductor Ramps Nanometrics' Atlas(R) II OCD Metrology System: NanoDiffract Enables In-Line Critical Dimension Metrology for Key Device Control

Milpitas, CA | Posted on August 12th, 2013

"Nanometrics, with its Atlas II platform, has enabled key yield and performance learning on our DRAM devices," commented a representative of SK hynix. "Nanometrics continues to be a valuable technology supplier to SK hynix and the Atlas II platform plays an important role in the production ramp of our next-generation products."

"We have a close collaboration with SK hynix, and have provided the company metrology solutions across multiple technology generations of memory devices since first introducing our industry-leading NanoDiffract® OCD analysis software," commented S. Mark Borowicz, senior vice president of silicon solutions at Nanometrics. "Our Atlas II system, with its advanced technology for in-line process control, has enabled this important customer to quickly identify and address manufacturing steps that impact device performance, and tune key processes to maintain process stability."

The Atlas II is a high-performance process control system capable of advanced thin film and OCD metrology, leveraging the industry-leading performance of Nanometrics' NanoDiffract software for complex structure metrology.
