A Japanese metrology and inspection equipment supplier has placed an order with DFMSim for its ‘SMARTreporter’ software used for real-time analysis of critical metrology data. Delivery of the first SMARTreporter unit is slated for early 2010. Additional shipments will occur throughout the year.
"This order validates the technical superiority of DFMSim's SMART family of products," said DFMSim's Chief Executive Officer, Anantha Sethuraman. "We are working closely with our Japanese partner to deliver advanced yield analysis solutions in the next few quarters. In 2010, DFMSim will be releasing other SMART products that will arm engineers with the capabilities to predict manufacturability and yield throughout the entire process flow."
