Conventional methods of characterizing and troubleshooting plasma-based thin-film processes frequently lack the ability to capture the full intricacies of the plasma system. Often, efforts rely on manual methods, use low-resolution data, and don’t have advanced analytics capabilities, making it difficult to identify root causes of process instabilities.

This webinar describes how new IoT software expands data resolution, access and analysis — enabling improvements to key measures of process success, including stability, cost, throughput and yield. High-resolution data (up to 40 MHz for event capture), historical data recording, browser-based dashboards, customized algorithms and advanced analytics support provide a window into actual conditions in the plasma system, in real time.

Presenters will provide demonstrations, discuss compatible platforms and offer studies into how this IoT software can enable plasma process operators in the semiconductor and industrial-coating industries to make data-driven decisions, proactively solve root cause and visualize previously unidentified optimization opportunities.
