At SandBox we help process engineers at semiconductor chip and equipment manufacturers accelerate time to market and reduce the cost of recipe development by quickly and accurately predicting process outcomes using data analytics and advanced physical models. Every applications in our software SandBox Studio is designed with process engineers in mind. Using SandBox Analytics, process engineers can accurately simulate, predict, and optimize nanomanufacturing processes. SandBox Oculus’s sharing and collaboration tools allows engineers to securely store, organize, and share all their data—in real-time. In SandBox Architect, engineers can easily create and modify 2D and 3D device stacks. Finally, in SandBox Envision, engineers can visualize their data and quickly recognize process trends and identify optimal process windows.
Our work at SandBox is important because the development of nanomanufacturing processes is oftentimes the critical bottleneck in the advent of new semiconductor technologies. With our technology, we can accelerate process development by a factor of three. This represents tremendous cost savings for semiconductor chip and equipment manufacturers, and its societal impact is immeasurable—by accelerating and pushing the limits of today’s nanomanufacturing processing tools, we enable the next generation of electronic applications to enter the marketplace.
