Is Moore’s Law dead or alive? This question is stimulating the semiconductor industry in recent years. Gordon Moore, one of the founders of Intel, predicted in 1965 that the number of transistors in dense integrated circuits would double approximately every two years. This economic rule has driven the semiconductor industry for the past 50 years and motivated the developers of logic and memory integrated circuits to find advanced solutions for the technological challenges involved in manufacturing ever smaller chips. In addition to the downscaling, other methods have developed according to Moore’s Law over recent years, such as 3D production of chips to further accelerate the semiconductor industry.
In 1993, scientists Dr. Moshe Finarov and Dr. Giora Dishon developed a unique integrated metrology solution that enables fast and precise metrology measurement, that is close to the process and enables advanced process control.
The development of this breakthrough technology helped semiconductor manufacturers enhance their process control and supports the continuous scaling of the semiconductor industry.
Today, by virtue of its innovative capability, Nova’s metrology solutions are widely adopted and are an inseparable part of the manufacturing process, enabling high performance advanced process control.
Since its inception, Nova has been engaged in planning, development and manufacturing of innovative and multidisciplinary metrology systems that combine complex optomechanical hardware, advanced optics and revolutionary algorithms. This unique combination ensures continuous innovation, thereby facilitating efficient control of production processes in the semiconductor industry. Nova operates globally from its head offices in Israel with fully-owned subsidiaries in the US, Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea and Germany.
With technological innovation and its position as the leader of metrology market, Nova helps semiconductor manufacturers enhance production processes, increase yield, and shorten their time to the market. As semiconductor devices become smaller and the production process becomes more complex, the demand for Nova’s products only grows.
