Wafer inspection, metrology and the other smart functions performed by KLA-Tencor's new tool have their own advantages, as enumerated in my story, but one thing I forgot to mention, is the clean-room floor space that is saved, since all these different functions--and the abiilty to process two batches simultaneously--usually requries separate tools that obviously take up more of the valuable space in the clearroom.
