HOLLIS, N.H., June 26, 2006 -- JP Sercel Associates has introduced its new IX200 ChromaDice series of
laser systems, available in both DPSS (diode-pumped solid-state) and
excimer ultraviolet (UV) laser configurations.
ChromaDice DPSS version is a high-precision wafer dicing (singulation)
system also suitable for wafer trimming and scribing and many other
direct-write applications. Its UV DPSS laser system delivers high-speed
wafer dicing and cutting with typical yields greater than 99 percent at
less than $2 per wafer, according to the company. The process is
tolerant of wafer warp and bow and suitable for all wafer types.
IX200 system is also available in an excimer laser version for via
drilling, micromachining, thin-film patterning and many other
semiconductor packaging applications, including LED liftoff. The Class
1, fully enclosed IX200 ChromaDice is available in 266 nm or 355 nm UV
DPSS laser wavelengths for a wide range of process capabilities; it can
achieve cuts as narrow as 2.5 µm in width, yielding as much as 24
percent more die per wafer with die yields greater than 99 percent.
According to JPSA, it delivers excellent results on GaAs (gallium
arsenide), silicon (Si) and other materials and scribes up to 6-in.
wafers, including sapphire LED wafers.
The IX200 ChromAblate
system is an excimer laser configuration. At a 248 nm wavelength, it is
suitable for micromachining of Si, GaN (gallium nitride), GaAs and
other IIIV materials, as well as polymers, ceramics and many others. An
optional 193 nm beam delivery package is also available, useful for
polymers that do not couple well with the longer UV wavelength (e.g.,
Pebax), as well as many of the more optically transparent materials
that do not machine well under 248 nm wavelength UV laser energy, the
JPSA will officially introduce the IX200 UV
laser wafer processing and micromachining system in San Francisco at
Semicon West 2006, July 11-13, booth 5179. For more information, visit www.jpsalaser.com
