There is a need for a rigorous process of checking for defects in the semiconductor industry. Without these checking processes, companies in the industry would likely produce products that are not of high quality. When this happens, the end product would end up as substandard and won’t last for a long time.

To ensure that there is accurate and thorough checking, companies like Rudolph Technologies, Inc. innovate their offerings of software and characterization equipment. These products are used to check on the consistency and accuracy of the assembled wafer and other semiconductor parts. The offerings of Rudolph Technologies include probe card test and analysis systems, macro defect inspection systems and thin film metrology systems. Additionally, the company also markets other products that aid in control processes, improving yield and reducing the manufacturing costs of companies.

Rudolph Technologies is a component of the Russell 3000 Index and is headquartered in Flanders, New Jersey. Founded in 1940, the business trades publicly on the New York Stock Exchange.
