Zygo LogoNanometrics, Inc. and Zygo Corporation have entered into a supply agreement wherein Nanometrics purchased inventory and other assets relating to ZYGO’s Semiconductor Solutions business. The arrangement is set up as an asset purchase and exclusive OEM supply agreement, both of which are aimed at wafer-based markets.

Nanometrics will assume all inventory, backlog and customer sales and support responsibilities while ZYGO will provide measurement sensors for integration by Nanometrics. Not only will this partnership aid the production of each company, it opens up the way for joint development of technology solutions for semiconductor and related industries.

“We are very excited about our new business partnership with ZYGO. The Unifire is a terrific complement to our current product offering, and our partnership with ZYGO enables us to integrate an additional state-Nanometrics logoof-the-art metrology sensor into our system-level platform while leveraging our existing application, distribution and support capabilities,” remarked Tim Stultz, CEO of Nanometrics.

Bruce Robinson, CEO of Zygo Corporation, shares Stultz’s excitement: “By leveraging Nanometrics’ established position as a top-tier supplier in the semiconductor industry, we can accomplish our goal of accelerating the commercial deployment and market penetration of our core interferometer technology into the worldwide semiconductor industry, without the investment associated with system integration, distribution, applications and support.”
