ZEISS Highlights Microscopes and Imaging Solutions at SEMICON West 2016
Visit Booth # 5558 to learn about equipment ideal for semiconductor manufacturing

ZEISS announces they will be highlighting a range of microscopes and imaging solutions at SEMICON West 2016, July 12-14, 2016, at the Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA. Visit Booth #5558 to see ZEISS Axio Imager Vario upright microscope for large samples, ZEISS Smartzoom 5 automated digital microscope, and ZEISS Stemi 508 stereo microscope. Visitors to the booth can also view demonstration videos of electron and X-ray solutions for the electronics and semiconductor industries, as well as videos developed by the ZEISS Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology (SMT) strategic business unit.

ZEISS will be showcasing the ZEISS Axio Imager Vario upright microscope, ideal for examining large samples. Axio Imager Vario can analyze samples from the smallest MEMS sensors up to XXL wafers or even entire flat panel displays without destroying them. Automated and compatible with clean rooms, Axio Imager Vario is certified to DIN EN ISO 14644-1 and meets Class 5 requirements. A motorized z-drive works with the hardware auto focus to ensure the optimum focus position.

Visitors to the booth can also view ZEISS Smartzoom 5, an automated digital microscope ideal for optical inspection in an industrial environment. Used for production-related quality testing, Smartzoom 5 is the perfect choice for inspecting such parts as screws, printed circuit boards, and metal elements and examining them for defects. It is also especially well-suited for conducting failure analyses, as well as conducting routine inspections, during which a material sample must be repeatedly inspected using the same workflow.

The ZEISS Stemi 508 Greenough-type stereo microscope on display is equipped with apochromatic optics and designed for heavy workloads. The compact, reliable Stemi 508 is great for acquiring images of outstanding image contrast and color accuracy. With the large object field (up to 36 millimeters (mm)), users always keep the overview of their sample.

Also at the booth will be a series of videos demonstrating unique solutions and applications developed by ZEISS SMT.
