Target Applications

The Novx 7000 System enables monitoring for critical electrostatic variables in both front-end and back-end semiconductor manufacturing environments. The multi-function sensing capability and industrial communication abilities enable integration of real-time monitoring with process electrostatic control. As a general tool for electrostatic monitoring of ESD events, electrostatic fields, particle density, personnel and workstation grounding, and the ability to control ionizer balance and discharge parameters, it also enhances monitoring uses in FPD, disk-drive and medical manufacturing applications.
