The Company also will open a center in Hsinchu, Taiwan, during the latter half of 2022. Together, the two centers will mark a continued drive in Onto’s commitment to working closer with customers globally to accelerate the qualification of the latest semiconductor device technologies.
"Onto Innovation’s growing importance to our customers’ roadmaps in both front- and back-end manufacturing is creating the need for even closer collaborations," says Dr. Mike Rosa, Onto’s CMO and head of strategy. "Each of these centers will prove to be an effective and timely resource fostering collaboration around equipment technology training, demonstration and the co-development of on-wafer solutions, where customers can work together with Onto technical experts toward solving their high-value problems."
In Korea, Onto’s Gyeonggi-do center will enable customers to learn how to leverage Onto’s breadth of connected product technologies to develop solutions for future manufacturing challenges. The center is initially designed to support basic to advanced training with course materials and trainers on site. "It’s important that our customers have access to these tools and software capabilities sooner, ensuring that time to productivity is minimized and on-wafer value is realized as soon as these systems hit the fab floor," says Ryan Hwang, regional general manager, Onto Korea.
These new facilities will focus on assisting Onto’s customers in the use of key portfolio products such as the Atlas® OCD metrology series, IMPULSE® integrated metrology system, Element™ FTIR metrology, Dragonfly® inspection system and the JetStep® lithography system.
"Having the capability to develop solutions in closer collaboration with customers in Asia allows not only a reduced time to HVM for the customer, but also the opportunity for co-optimization of processes based on Onto’s latest equipment technologies. Further, an ability to demonstrate firsthand specific product capabilities to our customers will enable a deeper understanding of the value and flexibility of Onto’s products across a broad range of applications – from advanced node to specialty and packaging segments," says Dr. Srini Vedula, senior vice president of Onto’s Customer Success Group.
Onto Innovation is growing rapidly and responding to the needs of its evolving global customer base by offering connected solutions leveraging Onto’s hardware and software solutions. Interested customers should reach out to their local sales and support team to learn how to access these state-of-the-art resources.
