SC Solutions is a high technology company located in the heart of Silicon Valley. The company was founded in 1987 under the name SuperComputer Solutions. Two years later, in 1989, the company incorporated under the name SC Solutions, Inc. and provided advanced structural modeling services using high-performance supercomputers. Later in 1996, the company expanded into advanced process control technology. Today there are two divisions that comprise SC Solutions: the Structural Engineering Division and the Systems & Control Division.
Chemical Mechanical Planarization (CMP) is used in semiconductor fabrication
to remove material from an uneven wafer surface.SC Solutions is one of the early pioneers of real-time feedback control for
CMP using in-situ sensors.
SC-x™ is a proprietary framework for developing and implementing controllers.
This framework has the advantage that all individual libraries can be quickly
integrated into a single software package. SC-x™ is designed so that controller
code can be easily tested in a simulation environment before the same tested
code is deployed to a real-time industrial environment. SC’s process controllers
are implemented in the SC-x™ real-time framework
