Lumetrics Blog: Global Shortage of Silicon Wafer Chips Fuels Onoing Growth and High Throughput Demand

Given the opportunity for additional revenue from increased demand amid the limited supply for many products incorporating silicon wafer chips, fabricators must focus on maximizing output with the raw materials they have and avoid waste at every step of the complex fabrication process. The implementation of advanced non-contact thickness measurement tools may hold the key.

Windshield Wedge Angle and Layer Thickness Measurements

A small degree of wedge angle has been found useful in minimizing ghosting in automotive windshields with Heads Up Displays (HUD). The Lumetrics OptiGauge II can measure the thickness of all layers of a laminated windshield simultaneously and is capable of determining the wedge angle as a function of location on the windshield with a high degree of accuracy as well as determining how much wedge is in each layer.

Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) Windshield Measurements

Advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) works as the name describes. ADAS systems provide the driver information on hazards and potential hazards on the road. The complex software algorithms behind the ADAS hazard identification process rely upon highly accurate telemetry data coming from multiple sensors. One key sensor is a forward looking windshield mounted camera.

Automotive Glazing Presentation by Filipp Ignatovich, Ph. D. 

Optical measurements are surprisingly simple and intuitive. You have a source of light; the light then interacts with the windshield; and then a detector analyzes the light after the interaction. There are only two types of interactions with the windshield – light passing through (transmission) and light reflecting from the windshield.
