Isolating Electrical Faults in Advanced IC Devices

July 29, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. ET

Yield improvement and production engineers working on today's ICs encounter many challenges as defects affecting device operation go undetected by traditional in-line techniques. Electrical Failure Analysis (EFA) is a suite of techniques that helps the modern day fab increase yields by isolating faults to areas small enough for Physical Failure Analysis (PFA). In this Webinar, we showcase a few of the proven EFA fault isolation techniques and describe how EFA helps to characterize the underlying defects.

Lock-in Thermography for Advanced Assembly Qualification

August 26, 2015 at 1:00 p.m. ET

Increasing IoT business opportunities drive a need for new packaging techniques such as FOWLP, Embedded Component Packaging, etc. Such new assembly techniques allow more components and functionality to be integrated into an ever decreasing package space. In parallel the faster product cycle drives the need for faster production ramp to stay competitive. All these challenges highlight the need for a better methodology to determine root cause of assembly-related defects during the new package process qualification process. We will demonstrate a totally non-destructive fault localization method based on a lock-in thermography with examples in these areas.
