CyberOptics to Display APS2 Technology at SEMICON Korea

Advanced technology demonstrates increased accuracy and improved sensitivity for airborne particle measurements

MINNEAPOLIS--()--CyberOptics® Corporation (NASDAQ:CYBE), a leading global developer and manufacturer of high precision 3D sensing technology solutions, will showcase the WaferSense® and ReticleSense® Airborne Particle Sensor (APS2) technology at SEMICON Korea, the largest microelectronics event in Korea, January 27-29, 2016, at the Winix booth (Hole A #2228)

CyberOptics’ APS2 improves equipment set-up and long-term yields in semiconductor fabs by wirelessly monitoring airborne particles in real-time. The next-generation APS2 improves on the industry-leading accuracy and sensitivity of the company’s devices widely adopted by semiconductor fabs and equipment OEMs worldwide.

“We’ve invested a significant amount of R&D effort into our product portfolios to continue to develop and evolve the most advanced technologies that generate both time and expense savings for our customers,” said Ferris Chen, Director of Sales, CyberOptics, Asia.

The wireless APS2 devices quickly monitor, identify and enable troubleshooting of airborne particles down to .14um within semiconductor process equipment and automated material handling systems. Equipment and process engineers can speed equipment qualification, shorten equipment maintenance cycles and lower equipment expenses with objective and reproducible data. Plus, the new thinner and lighter form factor of the WaferSense APS2 provides greater versatility as it can travel through virtually all tools.

CyberOptics will also demonstrate its new WaferSense and ReticleSense Auto Multi Sensors (AMS/AMSR) that measure leveling, vibration and humidity in an all-in-one wireless real-time device. With its thin and light form factor, the AMS travels through virtually any tool and the AMSR can capture multiple measurements in all locations of the reticle environment. The all-in-one devices are yet another way to increase yield and reduce downtime in semiconductor environments.
