Advanced Packaging

September 2015 (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.

Metrology

September 2015 (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. Experts will describe new approaches for next generation metrology and inspection, including measurements of CDs, stress, film thickness and non-visual defects.
