Dynamic Concepts Development Corporation [New York, NY] delivered release 1.0 of a fully custom high performance machine control software automation system to NanoEtch Systems Inc. [Milpitas, CA] on July 16th, 2012. The company was selected because of their long standing history of developing robust, high performance systems as well as their direct industry experience. Project discussions began in May 2011, and by June 2011 Dynamic Concepts’ proposed architecture was accepted by NanoEtch.

Implementation began in July 2011 when Dynamic Concepts assembled a dedicated team of 6 developers, led by President and Chief Architect, David V. Corbin to create the software at their Manhattan offices. Under a demanding and aggressive delivery schedule the team delivered a Beta release of the software in just three months. The development and hardware integration continued with key members of the team traveling to the NanoEtch’s Milpitas, California facility for seven months. This was a very complex and demanding application involving real-time machine control and requiring a high level of attention to safety for personnel and equipment.

The initial deployment of NanoEtch’s ion beam etching and deposition [IBE/IBD] tools was to Western Digital Corporation’s research and development and manufacturing facility in Penang, Malaysia. David Corbin accompanied the NanoEtch installation team to Penang for three weeks of final testing and release.

Throughout the development effort, Dynamic Concepts utilized Microsoft’s Team Foundation Server to plan and track all aspects of the application lifecycle. Being able to manage the project backlog, sprint planning, source control and development issues in a unified environment was crucial to achieving client’s stated requirements and goals in a timely manner with a minimal overhead.

Dynamic Concepts’ development philosophy is to create software to meet current requirements and also serve as a platform for future enhancements. This practice provided NanoEtch with a product that is adaptable across a variety of tools, thereby minimizing development costs for future production releases.
