Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • We reported revenue of $897.3 million for fiscal year 2020 compared to $780.8 million for fiscal year 2019, an increase of $116.4 million, or 15%. The COVID-19 pandemic has had varying impacts on our business for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020. Further discussion of the impacts by each segment are discussed below.
  • Our Brooks Semiconductor Solutions Group segment reported revenue of $508.7 million for fiscal year 2020 compared to $446.7 million for fiscal year 2019, an increase of $62.1 million or 14%. We reported increases in contamination control solutions revenue of $39.2 million, automation revenue of $22.4 million, and services revenue of $0.4 million. The semiconductor markets are cyclical and may fluctuate significantly from quarter to quarter. Demand for our Brooks Semiconductor Solutions Group products and services is affected by these cycles and a prolonged effect of the COVID-19 pandemic could negatively impact demand for our products and services in this segment. To date, we have experienced some disruption in our supply chain as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, which constrained our ability to ship some of the orders in our backlog during the second and third quarters of fiscal 2020. However, we do not believe that COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our bookings or demand for our semiconductor equipment products.
  • Our Brooks Life Sciences Products segment reported revenue of $129.8 million for fiscal year 2020 compared to $119.0 million for fiscal year 2019, an increase of $10.7 million or 9%. The increase in revenue was driven by consumables and instruments, which delivered record revenue levels driven by COVID-19 related demand, and an increase in revenue for our BioStore III Cryo systems, partially offset by decreases in revenue from automated cold sample management systems and infrastructure services revenue which were both impacted by customer site restrictions and schedule delays due to COVID-19.

Time-optimal trajectories for robotic transfer devices
6 Apr 21
A time-optimal trajectory generation method, for a robotic manipulator having a transport path with at least one path segment, comprising generating a forward time-optimal trajectory of the manipulator along the at least one path segment from a start point of the at least one path segment towards an end point of the at least one path segment, generating a reverse time-optimal trajectory of the manipulator along the at least one path segment from the end point towards the start point of the at least one path segment, and combining the time-optimal forward and reverse trajectories to obtain a complete time-optimal trajectory, where the forward and reverse trajectories of the at least one path segment are blended together with a smoothing bridge joining the time-optimal forward and reverse trajectories in a position-velocity reference frame with substantially no discontinuity between the time-optimal forward and reverse trajectories.

Tool Auto-teach Method and Apparatus
1 Apr 21
A substrate transport apparatus auto-teach system for auto-teaching a substrate station location, the system including a frame, a substrate transport connected to the frame, the substrate transport having an end effector configured to support a substrate, and a controller configured to move the substrate transport so that the substrate transport biases the substrate supported on the end effector against a substrate station feature causing a change in eccentricity between the substrate and the end effector, determine the change in eccentricity, and determine the substrate station location based on at least the change in eccentricity between the substrate and the end effector.

Substrate Transport Apparatus
4 Mar 21
A transport apparatus including a drive section connected to a frame and including a multi-drive shaft spindle, with at least one coaxial shaft spindle, more than one different interchangeable motor module arranged in a stack, each having a motor operably coupled thereto and defining a corresponding independent drive axis, and a can seal disposed between the stator and rotor of each motor module and hermetically sealing the stator and rotor from each other, at least one of the motor modules is selectable for placement in the stack from other different interchangeable motor modules, each having a different predetermined characteristic, independent of placement in the stack, that defines a different predetermined drive characteristic of the corresponding drive axis, independent of shaft spindle location, so that selection of the at least one motor module determines the different predetermined drive characteristic of the corresponding axis different from another of the independent drive axis.
