Chips In Training ("CIT") is an independent organisation providing learning and development opportunities primarily to the UK Education sector and Semiconductor affiliated companies regarding Microchip assembly and testing techniques. CIT was founded in December 2013 following the closure of Europe's leading sub-contract Semiconductor Assembly & Test facility in South Wales, UK. Its founder, Lea Caddick, believes all children in education right through to industry professionals who have no concept on how "chips" are made should be made aware of this fascinating area of today's technology. CIT principal aims are to promote the learning of how Semiconductors/ Microchips/ Integrated Circuits or IC's are assembled and tested, and the chain of events needed to occur before such components eventually end up in their final desired application.

Metryx develops and manufactures advanced metrology systems based on mass metrology. Mass change provides a direct, passive and rapid measurement of process change in a semiconductor process, regardless of whether it is an additive or subtractive process. The process change will manifest as either a single excursion, or a drift and will allow process engineering and excursion management decisions to be made and rapidly implemented. Because mass measurement takes place on product wafers it enables the reduction of non productive test wafers, and provides information quickly on process excursions reducing risk. Metryx has a worldwide customer base including 300mm, 200mm and 150mm fabs in Europe, US and Asia. Metryx tools are in use on high volume applications in high volume productions fabs as well as in multi application use in smaller fabs. Metryx has achieved recognition in this highly competitive industry with awards including Semiconductor International Best Product Award, Eurasia Semiconductor Yield Enhancement Award, and two Queens Awards for International Trade and for Innovation. Metryx is staffed by semiconductor industry professionals from the fields of equipment engineering, process and applications development, and equipment sales and service. While many of our customers are high volume 300mm fabs, our metrology technique can offer some real cost savings to the mature 200mm fabs that are operated by many of NMI members. These fabs are often running at close to capacity and cost savings represent direct improvements to profitability. Metryx is working with a number of similar companies on activities to reduce test wafer consumption, as well as increased process monitoring to help reduce reliance on slower, more expensive analytical metrology. ď Ź ANALYTICAL TOOLS AND SERVICES ď Ź EQUIPMENT SALES & REFURBISHMENT

RCL is a consultancy and training company for reliability. We work with electronics companies to help achieve world class reliability for a wide range of applications and operating environments. We provide troubleshooting with design issues at chip level and system level, in areas ranging from ESD to harsh environmental conditions. Our approach to reliability assurance takes account of the “real world” operating conditions of the end product. We are actively involved in bridging the gap between design and manufacture, providing support throughout the product development cycle from the study and design phase through to customer issues with the final product. A number of factors, including the use of electronics in an increasingly wide range of conditions and the additional risks introduced by smaller process geometries, have introduced new challenges for manufacturers who must reduce levels of field returns in order to maintain customer satisfaction. We provide programmes of work to improve the quality and reliability of electronics systems where there is multi-site manufacturing and complex supply chains. This may involve refining existing quality systems, or addressing specific manufacturing issues. Our methodology is underpinned by an awareness that every stage in the design and manufacturing process impacts on product quality and reliability .

Today's semiconductor industry has a rapidly growing demand for faster turn around times in product development and cost- effective manufacturing. This includes faster development of IC test solutions and parallel efforts to cover the large variety of products. In many cases existing test solutions must also be transferred to new high speed test equipment to reduce the cost of test. There are also upcoming demands from "fabless” ASIC design houses to help them transfer their ASIC designs to production. These requirements often lead to resource shortages and requirements for additional expertise and therefore contracting out test development work has more and more become an established route. Smartest GmbH, a privately owned, Munich based company, was founded to address these needs in a very flexible and efficient way. Smartest offers a complete application package which is focused on short development times while minimizing the involvement of the customers resources in the out-sourced project. This is achieved by offering a complete package of services for IC test applications, including: : test concept engineering test program generation and debug - the design and manufacturing of interface boards - production integration - product analysis documentation and training The development process is monitored by computerized project planning and review tools. They are transparent to the customer and also open to the customers requirements in TQM. Finally the product support is guaranteed by a unique software warranty procedure. This concept has proven to be very successful and today, Smartest supports a large number of tester platforms for customers all over the world.  CONSULTANCY SERVICES  EQUIPMENT SUPPORT SERVICES  R&D SERVICES  RF RELATED SERVICES  SOFTWARE AND AUTOMATION  TESTING  TRAINING
