MKS introduces Genesis® Solar Yield Management System


A cost -effective solution for improved yield, cell efficiency


Andover, MA, February 19, 2009 - MKS Instruments, Inc. (NASDAQ: MKSI), a global provider of technologies that enable advanced processes and improve productivity, has introduced the Genesis® Solar Yield Management System for solar cell manufacturers. Its patented, solar domain specific data analysis and visualization software is based on proven, reliable semiconductor and flat panel analytical tools. It permits users to quickly identify and correct solar cell production failures, and enables faster production ramps for continuous yield and cell efficiency improvement.

The Genesis® Solar Yield Management System delivers yield solutions in a cost -effective and expandable platform. The modular architecture of the system allows for ease of scalability and flexibility from R&D to pilot line to full production. The Solar Base integrated database contains all of the metrology measurements, quality measurements and process data necessary for one -stop engineering data analysis, and the enterprise Metadata manager enables three -tier connectivity to any existing database, eliminating the need to duplicate storage of engineering and production data.

The Genesis® Solar Yield Management System includes the advanced and proven Yield Mine® automated decision -making technology which, when combined with Solar Base, drastically reduces the analysis time required to find the root causes of process anomalies and to provide for actionable corrections. The Design of Experiments module enables process optimization and the Genesis Workflow Development Platform with a full API library allows users to create, extend, automate and share any custom analyses critical to yield improvement efforts.
