SEMI and Solid State Technology announce 2017 “Best of West” Award finalists

Each year at SEMICON West, the “Best of West” awards are presented by Solid State Technology and SEMI. More than 26,000 professionals from the electronics manufacturing supply chain attend SEMICON West and the co-located Intersolar. The “Best of West” award was established to recognize new products moving the industry forward with technological developments in the electronics supply chain.

Selected from over 600 exhibitors, SEMI announced today that the following Best of West 2017 Finalists will be displaying their products on the show floor at Moscone Center from July 11-13:

  • Mentor, a Siemens Business: Tessent® Cell-Aware Diagnosis – With FinFETs in high volume, finding systematic yield issues at the transistor level is important. The Tessent Cell-Aware Diagnosis technology significantly improves diagnosis of defects beyond the inter-connect and inside the logic cells. (Process Control, Metrology and Test Category; North Hall Booth #6661)
  • Microtronic Inc.: EAGLEview 5 Macro Defect Management Platform – EagleView 5 is the new, yield-enhancing, breakthrough macro defect inspection platform that was developed – and deployed in production — through collaboration with several leading device manufacturers who wanted to standardize and unify wafer defect management throughout their fab. Innovations include: dramatically improved defect detection; level-specific sorting; and integration with manual microscopes. (Process Control, Metrology and Test Category; North Hall Booth #5467)
  • SPTS Technologies Ltd: SentinelTM End-Point Detection System for Plasma Dicing after Grind – The Sentinel™ End-Point Detection System improves the control of plasma dicing processes and protects taped wafers for improved yields.  In addition to signaling exposure of the tape, Sentinel™ also detects loss of active cooling during the process to enable intervention to prevent yield loss. (Process Control, Metrology and Test Category; West Hall Booth #7617)
  • TEL: Stratus P500 – The Stratus P500 system electroplates panel substrates with wafer level processing precision.  As redistribution layers (RDL) reduce to widths below 10 µm line/space, and package sizes increase, conventional plating systems are challenged to meet system-on-package requirements. The P500 makes panel scale fine line RDL and feature filling applications possible. (Assembly/Packaging Solutions Category; North Hall Booth #6168)

Congratulations to each of the Finalists. The Best of West Award winner will be announced during SEMICON West ( on Wednesday, July 12, 2017.
