Analysis Of Pattern Distortion By Panel Deformation And Addressing It By Using Extremely Large Exposure Field Fine-Resolution Lithography

The growing demand for heterogeneous integration is driven by the 5G market. This includes smartphones, data centers, servers, high-performance computing (HPC), artificial intelligence (AI) and internet of things (IoT) applications. Next-generation packaging technologies require tighter overlay to accommodate larger package sizes with fine-pitch chip interconnects on large-format flexible panel... » read more

Nip The Defect In The Bud

As technology nodes shrink, end users are designing systems where each chip element is being targeted for a specific technology and manufacturing node. While designing chip functionality to address specific technology nodes optimizes a chip’s performance regarding that functionality, this performance comes at a cost: additional chips will need to be designed, developed, processed, and assembl... » read more

Addressing The ABF Substrate Shortage With In-Line Monitoring

Ajinomoto build-up film (ABF) substrate has been a key component in chip manufacturing since its introduction shortly before the turn of the millennium. Substrates made with Ajinomoto build-up film – an electrical insulator designed for complex circuits – are found in PCs, routers, base stations, and servers. Looking ahead, the ABF substrate market will continue to grow, with revenue up ... » read more
