JFreeChart - Wafer Map Chart example

Posted on February 21, 2017

A Wafer Map chart is used to represent the performance of a semiconductor device on a substrate or wafer. The Wafer Map chart represents the variation in performance as color-coded grids.

In this post, we will show you how to create a Wafer Map chart using the JFreeChart 1.0.19 library.

The following example demonstrates how to create a simple WaferMap chart using the JFreeChart.
