About the VLSIresearch 2016 Customer Satisfaction Survey
VLSIresearch received feedback from more than 95% of the chip market and 80% of subsystems customers for this year’s survey.
The survey spans two and half months and covers five languages. Worldwide participants were asked to rate equipment suppliers
among fifteen categories based on three key factors: supplier performance, customer service, and product performance. 3,619
surveys were returned, resulting in 54,282 total responses.

The VLSIresearch annual Customer Satisfaction Survey is the only publicly available opportunity since 1988 for customers to
provide feedback for suppliers of semiconductor equipment and subsystems. The 10 BEST, THE BEST, and RANKED 1st awards
provide special recognition to suppliers that are rated highest by their customers.
10 BEST awards recognize each chip making equipment supplier as a whole, regardless of product type:
• Fab, Test, and Assembly equipment ratings are grouped together for an overall rating for each supplier
• Each supplier is then listed in one of two categories based on a three-year average of total revenues for all its market
segments: Large and Focused
THE BEST awards recognize the more detailed markets:
• Fab, Test, Assembly equipment, and Subsystems
RANKED 1st awards place special distinction on suppliers that achieve the highest rating from customers in any survey category,
• 10 BEST and THE BEST
• Specialized areas such as: CMP, Deposition, Etch & Clean, Implant, Lithography, Process Diagnostics, Specialty
Fab, and Subsystems
