The latest semiconductor industry trends and Semilab’s contribution to the market


If you take a rather analytic look at the semiconductor market, you can see how surprisingly, even in the face of Covid-related issues like chip shortage, the market shows steady growth and is estimated to reach an all-time high revenue by the end of 2022. 
However, the ever-growing transistor density and performance make the manufacturing process more complex year by year, and the growing product demand generates a worldwide worker shortage.

Semilab provides manufacturers with top-of-the-line technology and systems for rapid and accurate metrology. With 90 owned and 41 licensed patterns, we provide essential technologies delivered in comprehensive metrology systems for the semiconductor industry.

In the case of chip manufacturing, Semilab systems are used for quality control, enabling manufacturers to detect the smallest defects in the silicon wafer.

Just to highlight one of the many metrology techniques we offer, Deep Level Transient Spectroscopy (DLTS) is a powerful and versatile method with higher sensitivity than almost any other semiconductor diagnostic technique to investigate impurities in silicon material.

The first Semilab product in 1989 was a DLTS system, but we have come a long way since then.
