Tignis, a Technology Innovator in AI Process Control Solutions for Semiconductor Manufacturing, Announces $7.2 Million in Series A Funding to Expand Sales Team, Take Company to the Next Level of Growths
Tignis, a technology innovator in AI process control for semiconductor manufacturing, today announced the completion of $7.2 million in Series A Funding led by early-stage venture capital fund DN Capital with participation by Silicon Valley venture capital firm Clear Ventures, former Microsoft Executive/VMware CEO Paul Maritz and former GE Digital CTO Harel Kodesh.
“This funding will accelerate Tignis on its journey of advancing physics-driven AI process control as an enabler of the next generation of semiconductor manufacturing,” said Jon Herlocker, president and CEO of Tignis. “AI Process control will accelerate semiconductor process development, improve efficiency and quality, and enable manufacturing technologies that previously were too complex to model, resulting in production of smaller and more complex chips, faster time to market and improved yield while reducing the cost of operations. In addition, the advancement of AI process control technology in semiconductor manufacturing that Tignis is undertaking is of particular importance to the US market, to re-establish competitiveness and leadership in this industry.”
