Wafer Inspection tools includes inspection of wafer shape quality review, metrology and data management
systems. Specialized wafer quality inspection tools assess wafer surface quality and detect, count and bin
defects during the wafer manufacturing process and as a critical part of outgoing wafer quality inspection. Wafer
geometry systems ensure the wafer shape is extremely flat and uniform in thickness, with precisely controlled
wafer shape topography. Specifications for wafer defectively, geometry and wafer shape quality are tightening
as the dimensions of transistors become so small that the properties of the substrate can substantially affect
transistor performance.

Skills Used
C, Core Java, Linux internals and CVS

Project #:8 lightweight UI Jan ’08 – May ’09

Gstreamer is a media framework that allows the construction of graphs of elements which operate on media
data. Applications using this library can do anything from real-time sound processing over playing video to
capturing audio, video, and even other types of media data. Its architecture allows for adding new data types
or processing capabilities simply by installing new plug-ins. Gstreamer is the core module, containing libraries,
headers, the basic object hierarchy, and a set of media-agnostic core elements.

Client: Qualcomm, San Diego, USA.
As a Software Engineer and responsible for:
• Porting Gstreamer on ARM processor (Qualcomm 7k and 8k).
• Integrating ALSA and v4l2 packages with Gstreamer.
