FIB: Copper Milling Enables Thrifty Design-For-Edit ASIC Development

To maintain its leadership in industrial, automotive, networking, wireless and computer peripherals markets, Avago has developed a design-for-edit IC strategy for its ASIC Products Division (APD). The strategy depends on the ability to cut through a circuit’s copper metalization quickly and easily. The FEI® CoppeRxTM focused-ion-beam (FIB) copper-milling technology fits the bill, efficiently leveraging existing production devices and opening up FIB techniques to design engineers. Read more about this successful effort to increase ASIC turnaround and control costs.
