KIC Introduces Spectrum Thermal Process Optimization Software

Jul 28, 2009

San Diego — July 2009 — KIC announces the third and final link to KIC’s technologies for increased solar cell efficiencies — the Spectrum thermal process optimization software.

The solar cell manufacturing industry has long linked higher cell efficiency to the ability to manufacture the solar wafers in the “sweet spot” of the thermal process window. The Spectrum automatically identifies the correct furnace setup that achieves a thermal profile that is positioned within the sweet spot of the established process window.

The prediction software uses the information from a single profile pass to evaluate the millions of possible furnace setups. Each possible furnace recipe will yield a profile, and the Spectrum identifies the fit between the profile and the established process window. Within seconds, the Spectrum can complete an exhaustive ranking and present its recommendation for the furnace recipe (zone temperatures and conveyor speed) that yield the optimal profile.

The Spectrum is a software-only option for the SunKIC profiler.

Based in San Diego, KIC is the industry leader in automated thermal management tools and systems. The company pioneered the development of oven profilers and process development tools, and then worked to create the next generation of thermal systems to help manufacturers optimize and monitor thermal processes.

With the introduction of cutting edge tools, the company continues to stay on the leading edge of process optimization and real-time thermal management systems, and has won numerous industry awards.
