Conformal Coatings for Reliable Electronic Assemblies

Modern electronics have become part of our daily lives and the sophisticated electronic circuitry at the heart of these devices and systems must be reliable. Conformal coatings act as a barrier between the electronics and the environment, protecting the areas they cover while strengthening delicate components and traces. Find out more about how conformal coatings enhance the reliability and longevity of electronic printed circuit boards.April 24, 2014

The Next Step in Diagnosis Resolution Improvement

Root Cause Deconvolution (RCD), a statistical enhancement technology recently made available in Mentor Graphics’ Tessent Diagnosis and YieldInsight products, is the next step in diagnosis resolution enhancement. It works by analyzing multiple layout-aware diagnosis reports together to identify the underlying defect distribution (root cause distribution) that is most likely to explain this set of diagnosis results. The results are then back- annotated to the individual diagnosis suspects.April 24, 2014

Metrology

September 2014 (date and time TBD)

Continued scaling and more complex device structures, including FinFETs and 3D stacking, are creating new challenges in metrology and inspection. Smaller defects must be detected and analyzed on an increasingly diverse set of materials. Chip makers are looking for better wafer edge inspection techniques, higher resolution metrology tools, 450mm-capability and new compositional analysis solutions.

Advanced Packaging

Sept. 2014 (Date and time TBD)

Back-end packaging is increasingly important to semiconductor device form factor, thermal and power performance, and costs. Compounded by the demand for lead-free processing and the soaring cost of gold, the industry is developing new approaches to packaging, including redistribution layers (RDL), through silicon vias (TSV), copper pillars, wafer-level packaging (WLP) and copper wire bonding. Experts will discuss these and other approaches in this webcast.
