Advances Leading Airborne Particle Sensing Technology Widely Adopted in Semiconductor Fabs Worldwide to Improve Yields and Tool Uptime

Minneapolis, MN— January, 2018 — CyberOptics® Corporation (NASDAQ: CYBE), a global developer and manufacturer of high precision 3D sensing technology solutions, announces it will demonstrate its next generation Airborne Particle Sensor technology (APS3) 300mm with new ParticleSpectrum™ software at SEMICON Korea, January 31st through February 2nd at the Seoul COEX in booth # A418.

CyberOptics’ WaferSense® APS3 speeds equipment set-up and long-term yields in semiconductor fabs by wirelessly detecting, identifying and monitoring airborne particles in real-time. CyberOptics’ Airborne Particle Sensors, documented as the best known method (BKM), have proven to deliver up to 90% timesavings, 95% expense reduction and up to 20X the throughput with half the manpower relative to legacy surface scan wafer methods.

The APS3 measurement devices are even thinner and lighter to travel through semiconductor tools with ease, while providing the industry-leading accuracy and sensitivity valued by equipment and process engineers around the world. The APS3 solution incorporates ParticleSpectrum software – a completely new, touch-enabled interface with user-friendly functionality, making it simple to read in real-time, record and review small to large airborne particle data.

“Semiconductor fabs and equipment OEMs worldwide have relied on our proven airborne particle sensing technology to provide significant improvements in yields,” said Dr. Subodh Kulkarni, President and CEO, CyberOptics. “Now, we’ve made the device even thinner and lighter and combined it with ParticleSpectrum, a software package that is sure to delight the engineers with its simplicity.”

At SEMICON Korea, CyberOptics will also unveil a new Airborne Particle Sensor designed for the Flat Panel Display (FPD) market.
