About the JVX6200i[TM]semiconductors production metrology tool

The JVX6200i(TM) 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[TM]semiconductors production metrology tool

The JVX7200 (TM) 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
