Additionally, our customer’s benefit by gaining access to our extensive micro-optics and optical integration portfolio of know-how and intellectual property developed over the last decade. Currently, our customers have access to more than 66 issued patents and licenses, with more than 70 additional patents pending. Through continued technological innovation, Digital Optics Corporation is committed to meeting our customers needs for both their current product generation as well as their future product generations and innovations.
AURORATM illumination solutions are photolithographically-fabricated, controlled-angle diffusers that are used in the illumination systems of high-performance step-and-scan tools. The use of controlled-angle diffusers enables optimum illumination of stepper reticles to help minimize feature size and maximize the operating process window for the tool, resulting in a higher-performance chip or a higher yield for the semiconductor chip manufacturer.
