Nova Measuring Instruments has added a large DRAM manufacturer to its customer base. The standalone order for an optical CD metrology system is part of a multimillion dollar deal and includes multiple integrated metrology optical CD systems. Most of the purchased items will be shipped during the second and third quarters of this year.
“This additional customer acquisition further solidifies our market position, and is of strategic importance, given our expectation that in the near future Optical CD will play a more significant role in DRAM manufacturing,” commented Noam Shintel, Nova’s director of corporate marketing. “This particular customer will be deploying a combination of our integrated and stand alone metrology solutions for thin film and optical CD measurements, at advanced technology nodes in Etch, CVD and CMP.”
