SVXR, Inc. a pioneer in inspection and metrology technology, will join the Test Vision Symposium at the 50th edition of SEMICON WEST this year. SVXR’s Chief Operating Officer, Scott Jewler will present sub-surface inspection strategies to improve time to market, increase yields, and reduce costs associated with high density solder interconnect in advanced packaging. The session will be taking place from July 21, 2020 to July 23, 2020 at the virtual conference of SEMICON WEST.
While 100% Automatic Optical Inspection (AOI) has been widely deployed in advanced packaging process flows, solder interconnect quality cannot be inspected optically. To address this market demand, SVXR introduced the X200TM, a unique High-resolution Automated X-ray Inspection (HR-AXI) system designed to automatically detect defects at high-speed in advanced IC packages. Since its launch in 2019, the X200™ has been successfully deployed at multiple customer sites in the most demanding applications including AI, IOT, 5G, and cloud computing where challenging assembly processes must be tightly controlled and monitored.
Data Rich Inspection Enabled through AI
Human inspection of traditional point projection X-ray images with limited dynamic range is error prone and time consuming. HR-AXI produces high resolution data rich images that are sensitive to sub-micron changes in material thickness. Using AI, defects can be detected and classified in real time from a single top down image without the need for a human operator greatly increasing throughput and quality.
Unique Technology Design Increases Speed and Sensitivity
The HR-AXI instrument was designed to bridge the gap between AOI and traditional point projection X-ray by enabling sub-surface high speed inspection and metrology. The X200™’s proprietary technology safely produces a large field of view image with high-resolution for automated analysis and reporting, with throughput that is orders of magnitude faster than existing sub-surface inspection techniques.
New Inspection Strategy for Semiconductor Industry
Semiconductor manufacturers always face the challenges of increasing yield, lowering costs, and eliminating escapes. SVXR has developed a new strategy of inline X-ray inspection that allows for real-time, fully automated, and high-resolution inspection.
