Advantages Of Picosecond Ultrasonic Technology For Advanced RF Metrology


This paper is from China Semiconductor Technology International Conference (CSTIC). Picosecond Ultrasonics (PULSE Technology) has been widely adopted as the tool-of-record for metal film thickness metrology in semiconductor fabs around the world. It provides unique advantages, such as being a rapid, non-contact, non-destructive technology, and has capabilities for simultaneous multiple layer... » read more

Controlling TC SAW Filter Frequency with Picosecond Ultrasonics


Presented during the poster session at ASMC 2019 PULSE™ technology is a first principles based acoustic metrology technique that is capable of measuring various parameters of interest in semiconductor manufacturing such as multi-layered metal thickness, sound velocity of dielectric films and reflectivity. In this paper, we demonstrate the applications of PULSE technology in the TC-SAW... » read more

Monitoring Critical Process Steps In 3D NAND Using Picosecond Ultrasonic Metrology With Both Thickness And Sound Velocity Capabilities


Amorphous carbon (a-C) based hard masks provide superior etch selectivity, chemical inertness, are mechanically strong, and have been used for etching deep, high aspect ratio features that conventional photoresists cannot withstand. Picosecond Ultrasonic Technology (PULSE Technology) has been widely used in thin metal film metrology because of its unique advantages, such as being a rapid, non-... » read more

Full Metrology Solutions For Advanced RF With Picosecond Ultrasonic Metrology


Picosecond Ultrasonics (PULSE Technology) has been widely used in thin metal film metrology because of its unique advantages, such as being a rapid, non-contact, non-destructive technology and its capabilities for simultaneous multiple layer measurement. Measuring velocity and thickness simultaneously for transparent and semi-transparent films offers a lot of potential for not only monitoring ... » read more

Adaptive Shot Technology To Address Severe Lithography Challenges For Advanced FOPLP


Fan-out wafer level packaging (FOWLP) is a popular new packaging technology that allows the user to increase I/O in a smaller IC size than fan-in wafer level packaging. Market drivers such as 5G, IoT, mobile and AI will all use this technology. According to Yole Développement’s analysis, the fan-out packaging market size will increase to $3 billion in 2022 from $2.44 hundred million in 2014,... » read more
