l to be deposited react on the wafer surface, forming a thin film of solid material. Etch: Etching is used various times throughout the IC manufacturing process to selectively remove material from the surface of a wafer. The company offers systems for etching dielectric, metal, and silicon films to meet the requirements of advanced processing. The company’s products include Olympia System; Producer Systems; and Centris and Producer Systems. Imaging and Process Control The company offers a suite of metrology, inspection and review systems for front- and back-end-of-line applications. These systems’ imaging capabilities and algorithms employ optical and e-beam technologies to meet the most advanced technical demands, such as self-aligned double and quad patterning, extreme ultraviolet layers, measurement-intensive optimal proximity correction mask qualification, and emerging 3D architectures. Metrology and Inspection: Metrology and inspection tools are used to locate, measure, and analyze critical defects and features on the wafer during various stages of the fabrication processes. The company enables customers to characterize and control critical dimension and defect issues, especially at advanced generation technology nodes. The company’s products include SEMVision G6 Defect Analysis, UVision 7 Inspection, VeritySEM 5i Metrology, and Aera4 Mask Inspection. Applied Global Services segment This segment provides integrated solutions to optimize equipment and fab performance and productivity, including spares, upgrades, services, remanufactured earlier generation equipment and factory automation software for semiconductor, display and solar products. The company offers the following general types of services and products under this segment: Certified Services: A service product portfolio that combines service technology and tool specific performance commitments to optimize customer factory productivity. Fab Consulting: Experts using advanced analytical tools to solve production problems that have the greatest impact on customer fab productivity. Parts Programs: Spare parts portfolio targets key manufacturing challenges and balances inventory cost and risk to efficiently meet customer fab requirements. Subfab Equipment: Applied SubFab solutions reduce environmental impact and meet Environmental Protection Agency reporting regulations for greenhouse gas emissions. Legacy Equipment: 200mm equipment and upgrades portfolio to address a spectrum of production needs and extend tool lifetime. The company’s legacy equipment supports new technology for various devices, including analog, power, and MEMS. Automation Software: Automation software coordinates and streamlines every aspect of a factory-the processes, equipment and people-to provide competitive advantage to customers. Display segment This segment includes products for manufacturing liquid crystal displays (LCDs), organic light-emitting diodes, and other display technologies for TVs, personal computers, tablets, smart phones, and other consumer-oriented devices. This segment offers various technologies and products, such as: Array Test: LCD display substrates are inspected at various stages of production to improve yield, minimize scrap, optimize equipment utilization, and monitor manufacturing processes. At the completion of the array stage, the performance of the millions of individual pixels on each display is tested. CVD: During CVD processing, gases containing material atoms or molecules are introduced into the process chamber. The gases form reactive radicals or ions, which undergo chemical reactions to form thin films on the heated substrate. PVD: PVD is used to deposit films of metals, alloys, transparent conductors and semiconductors. In Display, these films are used for contact, interconnect, transparent electrodes and transistor materials in display backplanes, as well as for transparent electrodes in color filters and touch panels. The company’s products include Electron Beam Array Tester, AKT PECVD Systems, and AKT Aristo and PiVot Systems. Energy and Environmental Solutions segment This segment inc
