Banner Industries is pleased to announce that it recently formed a partnership with Atonarp, Inc., effective October 15, 2020. Atonarp, a leading manufacturer of molecular diagnostics products, is spearheading the digital transformation of advanced molecular analysis and quantification in the industrial and healthcare space. Atonarp’s miniature spectrometers capture process-specific data, then translate that data into actionable information.

Atonarp’s products cater to processes that require advanced molecular analysis for a variety of markets, including pharmaceutical, semiconductor, industrial, and biological applications. Founded in 2010, Atonarp is a relative newcomer to the semiconductor scene, but its innovative, patent-pending technology is already transforming the playing field. Consistently focused on breakthroughs in sensor technology, miniaturization, artificial intelligence, and next-level algorithm and software integration, Atonarp has developed disruptive technology to improve process capabilities, increase chamber throughput, and improve yield in the challenging field of semiconductor manufacturing.

Atonarp’s technology allows users access to direct primary molecular measurements as opposed to secondary inferences. This means that users can probe the root cause of an unfolding phenomenon, not just observe the symptoms. This higher level of detail allows users to be proactive and predictive in troubleshooting solutions, saving time and resources.

“Atonarp is at the forefront of revolutionizing real-time process control by giving users access to more reliable and more detailed metrology data than they’ve ever had before. With new materials being introduced into semiconductor processes every day, this greater level of insight could be the difference between delivering that next-generation chip or not,” says Bud Richard, CEO at Banner Industries. “As the semiconductor industry continues to grow and mature, Atonarp is a perfect complement to our other tool-level product lines that are equally as committed to engineering predictive solutions. We are confident that this enhanced synergy will better position us to make more impactful change, and we’re excited for what’s to come.”

“Atonarp is pleased to partner with a visionary and progressive distributor such as Banner Industries whose presence and leadership in segments such as industrial and semiconductor is key to our future success. Banner Industries’ connections with end customers such as semiconductor fabs will prove invaluable in our joint venture,” says Prakash Murthy, Co-Founder and CEO at Atonarp. “Banner Industries’ suite of products is the perfect complement to Atonarp’s molecular diagnostics technology, offering customers a one-stop alternative for their industrial needs.”
