Metryx a Lam Research Company, was formed with a view to bringing a significant change to semiconductor measurement technology. Our innovative metrology utilizes the simplest of measurement parameters and the very basics of physics – everything has a mass and undergoes mass change during processing. By understanding a wafer's mass and how it changes as the wafer goes through a manufacturing process, chipmakers can save an exceptional amount of time and wasted wafer runs - all at a fraction of the cost of existing metrology solutions
