A deal done at SEMICON Japan last December will see Hermes-Epitek represent CyberOptics across Southeast Asia, including Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines. The move is to push sales and provide technical support in the region for CyberOptics line of wireless metrology devices for wafer processing equipment as well as its line of reflective wafer-mapping sensors under the HAMA Sensors brand.

"Hermes has a great relationship with fabs in Asia, and they know when our devices will be the right solution for equipment challenges tied to yield and downtime," noted Craig C. Ramsey, Ph.D., CyberOptics' General Manager. "Hermes is one of the biggest players in the Asian semiconductor industry, and they represent some key companies in the supply chain. They're also highly regarded for their service, so we're certainly happy to have them represent us in Southeast Asia."

"Coupled with our semiconductor equipment background, we believe that the inclusion of CyberOptics products as part of our product offering will allow us to provide a turnkey solution to our customers in terms of enhancing serviceability of our equipment," commented Frank Lu, Vice President of Hermes-Epitek Corp.
