CyberOptics to Showcase High-Precision Inspection, Metrology Solutions at SEMI Technology Unites Global Summit


Reading time ( words)

CyberOptics® Corporation, a leading global developer and manufacturer of high-precision 3D sensing technology solutions, will feature the WX3000TM metrology and inspection system with MRSTM sensor technology, and high-precision sensors for semiconductor tool set-up and diagnostics at the Virtual SEMI Technology Unites Global Summit from February 15-19th.

Tim Skunes, VP of R&D at CyberOptics, will share a related technical presentation ‘Fast, 100% 3D Wafer Bump Metrology and Inspection to Improve Yields and 3D System Integration’ on February 16th.

As the processes and features they create have become smaller and more complex, manufacturers face an increasing need for high-precision inspection and measurement to detect defects and improve process control. This need is amplified by the fact that these processes use expensive known good die, making the cost of failure extremely high.

The NanoResolution MRS sensor integrated into CyberOptics’ WX3000TM system provides sub-micrometer accuracy on features as small as 25μm. While retaining its ability to reject spurious multiple reflections, it adds the ability to capture and analyze specular reflections from shiny surfaces of solder balls, bumps and pillars, allowing highly accurate inspection and 3D metrology of these critical packaging features. Complete 100% 3D/2D inspection and bump metrology can be accomplished vs. time-consuming alternative methods that require separate scans for 3D and 2D, or a sampling only approach. With data processing speeds in excess of 75 million 3D points per second, it delivers production-worthy throughput greater than 25 wafers (300mm) per hour, at speeds 2- 3X faster.

“Whether it’s for the back-end or mid-end of the semiconductor fab, our proprietary sensors and systems deliver significant benefits to customers in terms of improved yields, processes and productivity,” said Dr. Subodh Kulkarni, President and CEO, CyberOptics, “Compared to other solutions, our technology saves our customers significant time and expense.”

Advanced Packaging (AP) and wafer level packaging (WLP) continue to be among the most dynamic and rapidly evolving areas of semiconductor development and manufacturing.

The company will also digitally demonstrate high-precision sensors that process and equipment engineers use in the front-end of the fab to speed equipment qualification, shorten equipment maintenance cycles, lower equipment expenses and optimize preventative maintenance plans. The WaferSense® Auto Resistance SensorTM (ARS) enables real-time resistance measurements of plating cell contacts in semiconductor Electrochemical Deposition (ECD) applications, and the

In-Line Particle SensorTM (IPS) detects, monitors and enables troubleshooting of particles down to 0.1 μm in gas and vacuum lines in any areas of the fab 24/7.

The Technology Unites Global Summit  brings together the global microelectronics supply chain, manufacturers and end users for a digital experience featuring industry thought leaders and high-value technical content from around the world. CyberOptics is a platinum sponsor.

My View from CES 2021: Day 1

01/12/2021 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
What a difference a year makes. One year ago, those of us who cover and attend CES were going from one press conference to the next; this year, we are at home going from link to link. Confusing and challenging, yes, but there are some advantages: no masks, only five steps to get to a restroom, being able to have three of four events or more displaying on your screens at the same time and being able to download press kits as needed. So far, many new devices are being introduced, but of course, they are all online, so you wonder if some of them really exist or are truly operational as yet.

CES 2021: Just How Different Will It Be?

01/11/2021 | Dan Feinberg, I-Connect007
CES 2021 starts today and this year there is no need for an overpriced hotel room in Vegas, no long lines to get a taxi or board a bus, and no crowded exhibit halls (one good thing this year). On the other hand, you must decide ahead of time what you want to see and make a reservation or appointment if you wish to have time and access assured.

CES 2020: The Intelligence of Things

01/06/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Show week for CES 2020 starts well ahead of the actual exhibition dates because it is huge. The organizers of CES state that there are more than 4,400 exhibiting companies and nearly three million net square feet of exhibit space. On the floor, you can find 307 of the 2018 Fortune Global 500 companies. Over the week, I-Connect007 Editors Dan Feinberg and Nolan Johnson will bring you some of the most interesting news, products, and announcements from 5G to IoT, semiconductor developments, autonomous vehicle technology, interconnect, fabrication materials, and much more.
