Bruker completes acquisition of Jordan Valley

Bruker Corp of Billerica, MA, USA (a provider of scientific research instruments and analytical solutions for molecular and materials research as well as for industrial and applied analysis) has completed its acquisition of x-ray-based in-line metrology and defect inspection equipment maker Jordan Valley Semiconductors Ltd (JVS) of Migdal Haemek, Israel (which has subsidiaries in Durham, UK; Austin, TX, USA; Hsin-Chu, Taiwan; and Suwon, Korea). The addition of Jordan Valley's in-line x-ray metrology to Bruker's existing x-ray metrology technologies is reckoned to position the Bruker Semiconductor Division as the leading x-ray metrology system provider for semiconductor applications at advanced nodes.

"The more demanding nano-metrology requirements of ever smaller features and three-dimensional structures are being driven by increasing demand in data processing, cloud computing and mobile technologies," says Bruker Semiconductor Division president David V. Rossi. "The combination of Jordan Valley's core metrology strengths with Bruker Corp of Billerica, MA, USA (a provider of scientific research instruments and analytical solutions for molecular Bruker's complementary x-ray technologies gives us a greater range of capabilities to best support the rapid development and production challenges facing our customers," he adds. 

"We are excited by the access to Bruker's increased global market reach and resources, and we look forward to delivering innovative metrology systems that will enable semiconductor manufacturers to meet the industry's technology roadmap," comments Isaac Mazor, founder & CEO of Jordan Valley Semiconductors and now VP & general manager of Bruker's X-ray Semiconductor business.
