KLA-Tencor presents FabVision Solar


The FabVision complements ICOS division’s portfolio with a yield management software solution with an emphasis on the optical inspection data source.

It is the first data management system made available to the photovoltaic cell manufacturing market that leverages defect and metrology methodologies from the IC market.

KLA-Tencor states that till now such data analyses have been performed by customers through manually copying some of the data and computing it in a third party software (often being Microsoft Excel).

The FabVision allows automated, real-time, and complete data collection from all of the ICOS PVI-6 optical inspection tools. It therefore is the first product providing means to supporting analysis of statistically significant amounts of data, as well as complete visibility over captured PV-cell inspection images as the company states.

The product has been available as of June this year.
