Nova PRISM Selected by Additional Leading Global Manufacturer
Rehovot, Israel – September 13, 2021 – Nova (Nasdaq: NVMI) announced today that another top integrated circuits (IC) manufacturer recently selected the Nova PRISM platform for its 3D NAND advanced nodes.
The Nova PRISM was chosen following an extensive evaluation period due to its superior metrology performance in critical applications, enabled by the platform’s spectral interferometry (SI) technology. The SI technology was proven to add an entirely new dimension of spectral information not accessible by the current traditional optical CD methods.
The unique combination of proprietary hardware and advanced software enables Nova PRISM to measure in die complex 3D NAND high aspect ratio structures, which are critical to the performance and yield of such devices while uniquely separating the complex layers.
