At ISTFA 2016 in Fort Worth, Texas LatticeGear presented customer results describing how the LatticeAx indenting and cleaving system was used for precise downsizing of a <100 micron thin die that was removed from its package prior to delayering. Delayering a thin, fragile die (layer by layer, edge to edge) is a manual process, an art. Typical downsizing methods such as sawing or manual cleaving can be difficult to control resulting in fractured die and lost targets. A LatticeAx tool owner developed an innovative downsizing solution using the micro line “indent to cleave” process. It is a hands free, 2 minute process. The application is most appealing when the target area is known and the sample thin <100 microns. The following images show the process.
