Parylene 101: Learn about the best protection for MEMS

This paper explains the basic history, processes, and applications of the ultimate conformal coating, parylene. Parylene has historically been used to protect printed circuit boards, LEDS, and medical devices from rugged environments and the human body, but now the pin-hole free coating is being used increasingly by the leaders in the MEMS market. With no known chemical that can harm the film, it is a perfect application for fuel tanks, water meters, or any product that must function in a hazardous environment. May 22, 2014

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

Learn more about RCD as the next step in diagnosis solution enhancement. Where layout-aware diagnosis points to a segment, earn more about RCD as the next step in diagnosis solution enhancement. Where layout-aware diagnosis points to a segment, RCD can isolate a particular root cause in that segment. RCD, a statistical enhancement technology in Tessent Diagnosis and YieldInsight products, is the next step in diagnosis resolution enhancement. It works by analyzing multiple layout diagnosis reports together to identify the underlying defect distribution that is more likely to explain this set of diagnosis results. RCD does not require any additional data beyond what is required for layout-aware diagnosis. This means that RCD fits well into existing diagnosis flows. April 24, 2014

Wet Processing

July 2014 (date and time TBD) Wet processing including wafer cleaning, is one of the most common yet most critical processing step, since it can have a huge impact on the success of the subsequent process step. Not only does it involve the removal of organic and metal contaminants, but it must leave the surface in a desired state (hydrophilic or hydrophobic, for example), with minimal roughness and minimal surface loss – all on a growing list of different types of materials. In this webcast, experts will identify industry challenges and possible solutions.
