The NGS Series defect detection and metrology systems are designed for applications where automated optical defect detection and precision dimensional measurements on wafers and other parts are required. They are well suited for dual use as production tools or as versatile process development systems. These systems offer a choice of high end microscope components (Olympus/Nikon/Leica), BF/ DF/ DIC illumination, and linear motor staging with 0.02 micron scales. There are several configurations available depending on your requirements. These include:a 200mm platform, a 300mm platform and a robotic platform for automated wafer and part handling.
