Jordan Valley’s new NVD detection tools hit significant needs for 300/450mm wafers with early detection of non visual crystalline defects that lead to unexpected wafer breakage during rapid thermal anneal and result in down time and yield loss. Early detection saves tool down time and enables early ...

It's a test in my name's Paul Ryan and I'm with Jordan finally. On the Simon -- in the UK and be responsible for developing the new product called QCT today. That's part of it is -- new generation of defects rules that -- thanks take a fraction. To look for defects and -- -- -- this. So the main motivation for this was spent many years people have -- -- wife is with extra destruction and with imaging. And been able to see defects on -- so on the life as. That might be critical to processing. On the other side people with a cynical way for us have -- learned that the hard way -- break -- -- and issues due to defects. There's never been a correlation between. They measurements on the defects so -- and the actual break into the wife -- So what children -- have done in partnership with the universities in the UK in Europe. Is did I let the methodology. Which allows this -- and look at an image and say. This will break all of this one right. Now for 300 mimics the way for us this -- so -- that benefits however a lot of factors have already got a tool sets. And so there's no real much -- -- put it back. However for 450 -- it's a different story. Sun for 450 millimeter. Wafers. The risk of breaking is much high because of the -- to diameter. -- side of the hunt and press the system lessons -- which will lead to damage which -- -- the way for us. In addition. Thermal handling steps which again increases the risk of these wife is right here. So that so the key -- say. Allows us to pull wife is onto -- system. Mentioned them and actually gave a value of whether these weapons will break on all its. This will cite the factories millions of dollars. And -- -- why intensify suspect life as I know -- them right in that process. So another part of it's in the tech knowledge -- blogs talk about these guns -- extra destruction. So currently in production people are you saying -- resolution to fraction. To monitor silicon to manual processes and selecting column processes. This works great in this repeat vote -- and really -- -- -- the process. The future in it's the -- materials and structures have become emotional complicates it. So -- -- -- twenty -- -- -- test people started to investigate in fact structures. That's starting to become more accepted materials on -- -- the -- 35 on constant and its materials. And -- shots complex challenges from -- to. -- the current generation of destruction tools really doesn't suit now. So we've developed in the attack mode today which is allows us to this accounting methods of extra destruction. So look at these three dimensional infrastructures. And 35 materials. Really -- enough. The last -- -- such as the thickness in the composition. But also -- commit structural they relaxed. Looking at the characteristics enough infrastructures. That Don mentioned that the things. Spacing the -- and -- This is the -- the critical Larry in the R&D. The minutes. And we expect this to roll into the production on in the next few years. Another application that is for the -- from justice. Without currently. Has a lot of silicon -- this is now. A new technological long -- battalion -- -- high college from justice. And counting on tried LED structures. Traditionally -- and made on some files that can complex structures. However there's a move now to -- that -- into the silicon manufacturing. And not -- huge switch from to challenges. -- not -- as well known if the growth through strong it would electronic pale and fallen off the wife. So there's a lot of challenges that this toll also addresses those challenges dimensions battalion nine I tried it looks at the structure -- that the fact that it's -- I'm really its feet by two production is to -- that this film is to specification. -- what day it needs to be rejected. Those two K applications and all of it done. On -- current system of adults -- and we expect -- that is for production tool in the next few months.
