CyberOptics Corporation, 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.
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 o¬ff-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.

Thanks to marketing and advances in technology, we have all come to expect that the electronic products we buy will be closely aligned to our individual and specific lifestyle or business requirements. This expected variability, in personal function and style, as well as regulatory compliance and a changing global economic landscape, has made designing and producing new products a challenging prospect. And, on top of the resulting “high-mix, low-volume” production cycles, increasingly more products contain electronic components in varying levels that heighten the complexity of design and manufacturing.

If you influence IT decisions at your workplace, you need to hear this. If you make the decisions, you need to listen, not just hear: Unless you start acting on CMMC compliance now, you are putting yourself at a disadvantage—one that will take much more time to correct than you might expect. Think of me as a spokesperson for the industry I represent: we are concerned about you. From what I’ve heard and seen over the last few months, too many of you are listening to suppliers, upstream and downstream partners, or other business owners on how seriously to take CMMC. As a result, far too much wishful thinking is guiding decision-making. So, listen to the experts.
