In the Southern Netherlands special of Link Magazine, an article was published about FastMicro, who developed equipment – Sample Scanner – that measures and characterises cleanliness, which is extremely necessary in the semicon industry.
More than ever in semicon, with its extremely costly processes and urgent market demand, a high yield is crucial.

This head-tail start-up originated in the heart of the southern Netherlands ecosystem, around the semiconductor industry there.

KMWE was already involved with the sample scanner in the ‘pre-proto phase’, at a time when FastMicro had yet to see the light of day.
