Nanometrics opens Singapore Advanced Metrology Center

Nanometrics Inc of Milpitas, CA, USA, a supplier of process control metrology systems primarily for manufacturing semiconductors, high-brightness LEDs, data storage devices and solar photovoltaics, has opened its Singapore Advanced Metrology Center, an applications development center for customers using Nanometrics metrology systems.

The center provides dedicated support throughout Asia for customers requiring advanced modeling of complex structures and recipe development. Nanometrics says that its investment in additional applications resources reflects the rapid growth and adoption of optical critical dimension (OCD) technology in semiconductor manufacturing due to smaller, more complex structures and new materials.

The firm says that the Singapore location provides access to a large pool of technical talent and a significant concentration of its customers. In addition to applications development staff, the facility also includes sales and service support. It also serves as a training center for regional customers and Nanometrics’ branch offices.

“This expansion is important to our efforts to improve responsiveness in Asia and to better serve our customers,” says Nagesh Avadhany, VP of applications engineering and training programs. “We have a highly skilled local staff of engineers and scientists who now form the core of our regional applications team. They bring to Nanometrics a vital resource to build our customers’ confidence in our ability to enable their most critical structures,” he adds.

“Singapore offers a deep talent base, and will serve as a gateway to all of our customers in Asia,” says president & CEO Timothy J. Stultz. “This significant commitment to our customers in the region will help us serve them as a more local company, with improved access and communication,” he adds. “We look forward to expanding relationships with our customers.”
