The ZMI 501 measurement electronics are designed to provide the step resolution required to meet the stage metrology needs for next generation semiconductor test instrumentation.

"Displacement measuring interferometers improve stage position accuracy by measuring at the plane of interest and eliminating geometrical errors. The ZMI 501 builds on the success of ZYGO's ZMI 500 series of DMIs as an OEM solution by providing enhanced system accuracy and throughput," stated Dan Musinski, product manager for ZYGO's Displacement Measuring Interferometers. "The ZMI 501 electronics offer the resolution, velocity, and flexible interface options required by our customer's that are developing next generation semiconductor instrumentation."

The ZMI 501 electronics is an enhancement to ZYGO's successful ZMI 500 series of displacement interferometer products. The ZMI 501 has selectable linear position resolution to the nanometer level and the ability to track high target velocities. For ease of integration the ZMI 501 measurement electronics offers the metrology data in multiple formats. When combined with a ZYGO stage mirror a ZMI 500 series Displacement Measuring Interferometer system provides a complete Stage Metrology Solution.

Zygo Corporation (NASDAQ: ZIGO), headquartered in Middlefield, Connecticut, is a worldwide developer and supplier of high precision optics, optical, and fiber optic assemblies, high performance metrology instruments, and automation for the telecommunications, semiconductor, and industrial markets.
