VLSI Standards, Inc. was founded in 1984 in Mountain View, California for the purpose of developing measurement standards and associated services for the semiconductor and related industries. VLSI Standards' first products were a traceable Step Height Standard, and a line of Contamination Standards. Today, VLSI Standards provides dozens of standards, products, and services to address every aspect of instrument calibration in the semiconductor and other industries requiring accurate metrology. As always, we will continue the tradition of partnership with our customers for developing the most useful and innovative products possible.
The Right People
At VLSI Standards, we have talented and diverse personnel who bring with them the highest level of scientific backgrounds and competent methodologies. Our scientists have earned numerous patents, developed innovative methods for correlating measurement results between different metrology instruments, and established measurement techniques in important areas such as Dimensional Standards, Contamination Standards, Film Thickness Standards, and Resistivity Standards. We are active participants in the definition of industry roadmaps and in the development of the calibration standards to support the metrology needs of evolving technologies. Additionally, we value our partnership with national metrology institutes around the world, as reflected in numerous joint publications. We maintain a close relationship with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as the auditor of our laboratory accreditation.
The Right Approach
Developing a positive partnership and collaboration with our customers is our approach to the science and business of making standards. Our scientists routinely work directly with customers to provide calibration solutions. Additionally, we provide a full range of support including a recleaning / recertification service, and a commitment to provide advice for product application and use. Even before you purchase a product, our worldwide sales representatives will work with you to determine exactly what types of products or services best meet your calibration or measurement needs.
We believe that the best way to work with our customers is to provide the highest level of honesty and integrity in both our advice and our services.
