CyberOptics® Celebrates 10 Year Milestone for WaferSense® and ReticleSense™ Measurement Portfolio at Semicon China
MINNEAPOLIS --(Business Wire)--
Corporation (NASDAQ: CYBE), a world leader in intelligent inspection
and sensing solutions for electronics assembly and semiconductor process
equipment, marks a 10 year milestone of worldwide semiconductor market
adoption of the WaferSense and ReticleSense measurement portfolio.
CyberOptics will showcase the family of measurement devices that provide
leveling, gap measurement, robot teaching, vibration measurement and
airborne particle detection solutions at the upcoming Semicon
China conference and exhibition from March 18 - 20th in
Booth #4535, Puritic Shanghai Corporation and Booth #2124, Winifred
International Technology Limited at the Shanghai New International Expo
Centre, Shanghai, China.
Semiconductor fabs and OEMs value the accuracy, precision and
versatility of the specialized WaferSense and ReticleSense measurement
portfolio that enables improvements in fab yields and equipment uptime.
"CyberOptics is well poised to build on our 30 year history of
innovation, and 10 year history of WaferSense and ReticleSense market
adoption. Our history is a springboard to furthering advancements of our
measurement sensor technology platforms to bring new, innovative
solutions that address key application needs in the semiconductor
industry and other vertical markets that have stringent manufacturing
quality and productivity standards," said Subodh Kulkarni,
President and CEO of CyberOptics.
"For 10 years, seiconductor fabs and equipment OEMs have saved
significant time and money by using the WaferSense and ReticleSense
measurement solutions. Our newest portfolio addition, the ReticleSense
Airborne Particle Sensor (APSR) in a reticle shaped form factor, enables
equipment engineers to shorten equipment qualification and release to
production and maintenance cycles all while reducing expenses. For
example, customers have experienced up to 88% time savings, up to 95%
reduction in costs and up to 20X the throughput with half the manpower
resource requirements using the WaferSense Airborne Particle Sensor
(APS) relative to legacy surface scan wafer methods," said Ferris Chen,
Director of Sales for Asia at CyberOptics.
Unlike legacy methods, equipment engineers can quickly locate
contamination sources and recognize the effects of cleaning adjustments
and repairs in real-time with the wireless, Bluetooth® enabled
ReticleSense Airborne Particle Sensor (APSR) and the ParticleView™
software, without opening the tool.
The WaferSense measurement portfolio including the Auto Leveling System
(ALS), the Auto Gapping System (AGS), the Auto Vibration System (AVS (News - Alert)),
the Auto Teaching System (ATS) and the Airborne Particle Sensor (APS)
are available in 200mm, 300mm and 450mm wafer sizes. The ReticleSense
Airborne Particle Sensor (APRS) and ReticleSense Auto Leveling System
(ALSR) products are available in a reticle shaped form factor.
