CyberOptics to Feature Yield-Improving Auto Teaching Systems™ during SEMICON Europa

Minneapolis, Minnesota — October 7, 2022 — CyberOptics® Corporation (NASDAQ: CYBE), a leading global developer and manufacturer of high-precision 3D sensing technology solutions, will exhibit at SEMICON Europa 2022, scheduled to take place November 15-18, 2022 at the Messe Munchen in Munich, Germany. The company will feature its next-generation WaferSense® Auto Teaching System™ (ATS2), the new ReticleSense® Auto Teaching System™ (ATSR) and the In-Line Particle Sensor in Booth #C1101.

IPS and Screen

ATS2 and ATSR are multi camera sensors used with CyberSpectrum™ software to teach accurate wafer and reticle hand-off calibration for proper alignment and set-up of semiconductor tools. The sensors “see” inside to capture three dimensional off-set data (x, y and z) in real-time to quickly teach wafer and reticle transfer positions – all without opening the tools. Process and equipment engineers can conduct repeatable and reproducible setups and maintenance checks, speed trouble-shooting and eliminate technician-to-technician variation.

The company will also feature the In-Line Particle Sensor (IPS) with CyberSpectrum™ software that detects particles in gas and vacuum lines 24/7 down to 0.1µm. The sensor is particularly relevant for EUVL tools to monitor particles in-line. The device is an extension of the industry-leading Airborne Particle Sensor (APS/APSRQ) technology that is documented by fabs as the Best-Known Method (BKM).

WaferSense and ReticleSense sensors are widely used for various applications including leveling, vibration, gapping, relative humidity, resistance and airborne particles. Semiconductor fabs worldwide rely on these real-time measurement sensors to improve yields, processes and tool uptime.
