New Features

 

• Faster start up time of the shell and display of navigation map.
• More responsive UI when selecting editors.
• Ability to create subdirectories for organization of probe lists and wafer maps under the \Wafermaps directory.
• Module lists can be selected from subdirectories from Navigate modules in the Die Script Editor and Probe Control dialog allowing for better organization of module information.
• Multi-select functionality added to all select list dialogs to allow for block select or move for items.
• Labels for documenting device connections in the Device Connection Editor.
• Bulk export or device connections to device connection input (.DCI) file format to allow for easier modification and transfer of switch patterns between multiple systems.
• Data file support Lot_Wafer_Date_Time information in full-auto and append to one data file are checked.
• Feature that allows appending wafer data to a single file when performing auto-probing
• Enhancement to Metrics Miner to allow loading of multiple wafers for lot analysis.
• Support for long path and filenames in ICS export file, auto-store, etc.
• Add feature in Configuration Manager to allow specifying the data output format and precision of floating point values in the ICV output data file.
• ActiveX server to allow remote execution of ICV from external application such as customer written shell in VB.NET.
