LatticeGear is heading to Semicon SEA

LatticeGear is heading to Semicon SEA to participate in the workshop: Effective Failure Analysis in the age of Internet-of-Things (IoT) chaired by Dr. GOH Szu Huat of Global Foundries, Singapore Pte Ltd. Learn more about the workshop and register here https://lnkd.in/eaXPYN3

Here is the conference abstract:

In today’s age of IoT proliferation, people are more connected than ever in their daily activities by a broad array of systems and sensors found in smartphones, tablets, electric cars, visuals or wearables. By the year 2020, according to various sources, it is estimated that about 50 to 100 billion devices will be electronically connected to the internet. To support this exponential growth, integrated circuits and package modules technologies that are found in such IoT devices is advancing at a pace that is so rapid that it is important for failure analysis approaches to keep up with the changes. It is no longer how well we debug failures but how fast we resolve the issues. Employing the most effective diagnostic methodology and tool is critical to ensure quality and timely failure root cause analysis.

Scribing and Cleaving Samples Into 1 mm Wide Strips

Some analytical instruments can only accept small samples and with limited height. Sample preparation by scribing and cleaving is often the best solution. LatticeGear’s scribing and cleaving tools are used to prepare narrow samples for high resolution SEM and STEM. The video shows two methods of preparing 1 mm wide strips. One narrow sample was prepared by making a short scribe using a pen style scriber on the edge of the sample and cleaving with Small Sample Pliers . The second example was scribed using the FlipScribe® and cleaved using the Small Sample Pliers. The FlipScribe® creates a straight scribe on the backside of the sample. This is the preferred method when the sample surface needs to be clean, free of particles and damage from the scribing process.

Cleaving Copper C4 Bumps

The LatticeAx was a key component of the sample preparation workflow for preparing copper C4 bumps for examination in the SEM. The results revealed the bump-metallization interface. The process was more cost effective and could be achieved much faster in comparison to using a focused ion beam (FIB) instrument. Read More
