CyberOptics to Deliver Technical Presentation About the Importance of 3D Inspection for Advanced Packaging at SEMICON Taiwan
30 November 2021
CyberOptics® Corporation , a leading global developer and manufacturer of high-precision 3D sensing technology solutions will share a technical presentation at the Heterogeneous Integration Global Summit organized by SEMICON Taiwan Dec 1-3rd. The company will also exhibit WaferSense® and ReticleSense® sensors and feature the WX3000™ Metrology and Inspection system in booths I3128, L0310, J2434 and K2106 at TaiNEX 1, Taipei, Dec 28-30th.
Dr. Charlie Zhu, Director of Engineering at CyberOptics, will present ‘3D Inspection Is Becoming Essential in Advanced Packaging’ in the AP technical track on December 2nd at 3:30pm local time.
Advanced Packaging continues to be among the most dynamic and rapidly evolving areas of semiconductor development and manufacturing. Most of these new processes take advantage of the third dimension, going vertical to continue packing more computing power into less space while circumventing the difficulties posed by further reductions in two-dimensional size.
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. As a result, the traditional 2D-based inspections can no longer satisfy the needs for quality control where 3D inspection is becoming essential. A growing number of applications in the AP process are requiring full 3D inspection instead of sampling and the trend is expected to continue. However, the traditional 3D inspection systems are either slow or inaccurate which means they are unable to meet the growing demand of AP.
This presentation will elaborate on the needs and challenges of 3D inspection in various AP applications such as Wafer-Level Packaging (WLP), System-in-Package (SiP) and Substrate Inspection, and how CyberOptics’ disruptive Multi Reflection Suppression™(MRS™) sensor technology can improve yields, processes and quality.
At the show, the company will feature the WX3000™ Metrology and Inspection system powered by the 3 µm NanoResolution MRS sensor that provides sub-micrometer accuracy on features as small as 25µm. The system is specifically designed for wafer-level and advanced packaging applications. 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 metrology of these critical packaging features. Fast, 100% 3D/2D inspection and metrology can be conducted with throughput greater than 25 wafers (300mm) per hour, 2-3X faster than alternative solutions.
