Where is the primary flat of a wafer?

Primary flat: The flat of longest length located in the circumference of the wafer. The primary flat has a specific crystal orientation relative to the wafer surface; major flat. Secondary flat: Indicates the crystal orientation and doping of the wafer.

What is encapsulation for wafer level packaging?

Wafer level packaging: at this level, encapsulation is applied simultaneously on all dies to provide protection during handling, dicing and testing. This type of packaging is usually hermetic. ii) Conventional packaging: after encapsulation is applied, the wafer is diced.

Is a silicon wafer a chip?

Silicon wafers are the building blocks of computer chips and are an essential part of many modern devices. They are polished and refined before being exposed to a process known as photolithography.

What are 4 levels of testing?

What are the different levels of Testing?
Unit Testing.
Integration Testing.
System Testing.
Acceptance Testing.
RF probes

What is defect inspection of wafers?

The wafer defect inspection system detects defects by comparing the image of the circuit patterns of the adjacent dies. As a result, systematic defects sometimes cannot be detected using a conventional wafer defect inspection system. Inspection can be performed on a patterned process wafer or on a bare wafer.

What is the difference between a wafer and a chip?

A chip– is an integrated circuit that has hundreds of millions of transistors on the small form factor chip of which size depends on the type of integrated circuit. A wafer is a thin slice of material usually in a round shape with a mirror-like finish surface for semiconductor device fabrication.

What are the advantages of wafer bonding?

The ability to use wafer bonding enables this much smaller, lower cost, and higher reliability way of making these devices. The same thing is true with timing devices. These are such tiny devices, that the ability to bond wafers and create packages at wafer-level provides a lot of economic and size advantages.wafer level testing

What are the sources of contamination in wafers?

Contaminants can spawn from airborne dust during processing. It can be acquired from equipment, factory operators, wafer handling, chemical processing, film deposition, and gas piping. Moving equipment and containers for liquids are the number one carrier of particles and contaminants that can transfer on a Si wafer.

Is flip chip wafer-level packaging?

At Maxim®/Dallas Semiconductor, the terms "flip chip" and "chip-scale package" were initially used synonymously for all types of wafer-level packaged dies.

What is the grit size of a dicing blade?

2-4 microns to 70 micronsDiamond grit size ranges from 2-4 microns to 70 microns, depending on blade thickness. Resin Blades: Resin as binder allows for blade wear management rendering resin-bond blades an excellent choice for hard and brittle materials such as: QFN/MLF, Thick Ceramic Substrates, HTCC and Glass.
