Process Transfer Support

Fab to fab (across the hall or US-Asia, Europe, etc) or Fab to foundry: Includes SIMS match, contamination assessment and Rs match.

Semiconductor Process Audit

  • Core's experienced process engineers will provide a full review - and characterization of implant process capability and stability
  • This audit can include a determination, through the use of standard baseline implants and appropriate materials characterization, of how the customer's implanter elemental contamination performance compares to similar implanter types and also by general product type (CMOS, Bipolar, etc.)
