Onto Innovation Expands Presence in Asia
Onto Innovation Inc. has opened a new training, demonstration and solutions development center in Columbia, centered on its broad line of inspection, metrology, and lithography solutions. The middle is situated in Gyeonggi-do Province and is available to Onto's customers across Asia.
The company also will open a center in Hsinchu, Taiwan, during the latter half of 2022. Together, the 2 centers will mark a continued drive in Onto's commitment to working closer with customers globally to accelerate the qualification from the latest semiconductor device technologies.
\”Onto Innovation's growing importance to our customers' roadmaps in both front- and back-end manufacturing is allowing the need for even closer collaborations,\” said Dr. Mike Rosa, Onto's CMO and head of strategy. \”Each of these centers will prove to be a highly effective and timely resource fostering collaboration around equipment technology training, demonstration and the co-development of on-wafer solutions, where customers can work along with Onto technical experts toward solving their high-value problems.\”
In South Korea, Onto's Gyeonggi-do center will enable customers to learn to leverage Onto's breadth of connected product technologies to develop solutions for future manufacturing challenges. The center is initially made to support basic to advanced training with course materials and trainers on-site.
\”It's essential that our customers get access to these tools and software capabilities sooner, ensuring that time for you to productivity is minimized and on-wafer value is realized as soon as these systems hit the fab floor,\” said Ryan Hwang, regional gm, Onto Korea.
These new facilities will focus on assisting Onto's customers in the utilization of key portfolio products such as the Atlas OCD metrology series, IMPULSE integrated metrology system, Element FTIR metrology, Dragonfly inspection system and also the JetStep lithography system.
\”Having the power to develop solutions in closer collaboration with customers in Asia allows not just a reduced time to HVM for the customer, but also the chance of co-optimization of processes according to Onto's latest equipment technologies. Further, the capability to demonstrate firsthand specific product capabilities to our customers will enable a deeper knowledge of the value and adaptability of Onto's products across an extensive selection of applications – from advanced node to specialty and packaging segments,\” said Dr. Srini Vedula, senior v . p . of Onto's Customer Success Group.
