New Uses for GIS: Metrology

Maybe this is not news, but it’s news to me. The acquisition of FabSolve LLC by semiconductor yield management and manufacturing equipment provider KLA-Tencor Corp tipped me off. In an article about the aquisition is this:

“FabSolve’s geographical information systems (GIS) database structure as applied to integrated circuit (IC) design databases is used as a reference for accurately locating and classifying defects that otherwise might avoid classification using traditional methods,” [FabSolve President Paul] Proctor also said.

FabSolve is actually a development partner with a Vietnam-based GIS releated business.

So, what’s metrology? The science of measurement. (I have to look it up every time!)
