Bringing Critical Materials Inspection to the Chip Industry

UNISERS Raises $14M Seed Round


The funding will enable the shipping of the first systems to customers

UNISERS, a Swiss semiconductor metrology company that identifies invisible contamination-caused defects in semiconductor materials, raised $14M in Seed funding led by Intel Capital, with participation from M Ventures, RSBG Ventures and Swisscom Ventures. UNISERS is on a mission to change the paradigm of particle inspection in the semiconductor industry at a time when optimizing yield and avoiding excursions in the most advanced and expensive manufacturing nodes holds significant importance. 

Particle contamination during the manufacturing of semiconductor chips is leading to losses worth billions of dollars, while also contributing to the industry’s environmental footprint. Unfortunately, to date, finding the source of such contaminants is both costly and time-consuming.

The funding will enable UNISERS to accelerate the delivery of its commercial products to leading semiconductor partners by 2023. In addition, the company will be able to demonstrate the value of the technology in a number of further critical use cases.

We believe in UNISERS as one of the key enablers towards contamination control across the entire supply chain.

”We are very excited to have closed this Seed Round with several strong investors who share our belief that our unique technology will become a must-have solution for contamination control all along the semiconductor manufacturing value chain,” said Ali Altun, CEO and founder of UNISERS.
