About the JVX6200i™ semiconductors production metrology tool

The JVX6200i™ advanced X-ray metrology system is a high throughput, high uptime and low Cost of ownership production tool. It is a multi-channel metrology tool for advanced semiconductors FEOL and BEOL processes as well as wafer-level packaging (WLP) applications. The popular configuration combines X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and X-ray reflectance (XRR). Typical applications are: FEOL (High-k/metal gate, SiON and ACL hard masks), BEOL (Cu seed/barrier, Cu electroplating & CMP) and WLP (UBM stack, Sn/Ag micro bumps and Cu pillars).

About the JVX7200™ semiconductors production metrology tool

The JVX7200™ advanced X-ray metrology system is the first in-line production control tool for epitaxial SiGe &Si:C applications. This tool combines Fast HRXRD and Fast XRR channels, capable of measuring SiGe composition, thickness, density, strain and relaxation of single and multi-layer stacks on product wafers with high throughput, accuracy and repeatability. Unlike optical or spectroscopic tools HRXRD and XRR are first principle techniques that deliver accurate and precise results without calibration.

About QC3™ / QC-Velox™ LED & compound semi production metrology tools

The QC3 / QC-Velox are High Resolution X-Ray Diffractometers (HRXRD) especially designed for production in-line quality control for the compound Semi markets such as LED, Photovoltaic, CPV, Power Transistors, RF and others.

The tools are designed for epitaxial thin-film materials analysis, measuring thickness, composition and relaxation of epilayers such as GaN, GaAs, InP, MQW, Si, Ge & others. QC-Velox demonstrates the best cost-performance ratio with outstanding throughput, competitive price and low cost of ownership.
