TESCAN New Delayering Capability For Unattended, Automated Failure Analysis

News

TESCAN ORSAY HOLDING a.s. has announced the release of the new TESCAN Delayering Module that enables automated gas-assisted top-down delayering using TESCAN SOLARIS X and AMBER X Plasma focused ion beam (FIB) instruments. TESCAN Delayering supports physical failure analysis through the combination of inert Xe plasma FIB ions and unique, proprietary gas chemistries that have been developed specifically for today's advanced technology nodes, creating artifact-free, site-specific trenches—with maximum planarity and homogeneity and without altering a device's electrical properties—for rapid access to deeply buried features or defects.

“Efficiently delayering today's devices requires solutions that are different from the standard gas chemistries or traditional gallium (Ga) FIB technologies that have been used in the past for this application,” states Lukáš Hladík, product manager for FIB-SEM in TESCAN‘s Semiconductor market segment. “With TESCAN Delayering, we have developed a state-of-the-art solution for technology nodes below 10nm, and which also provide the ability for users to customize parameters for their own devices. Predictable, automated and unattended delayering can help with allocating and deploying lab resources. Users can be confident that the delayering process will terminate at the designated layer so they don't need to spend a lot of time monitoring the process.”

TESCAN Delayering uses a step-by-step guided wizard to set-up the required delayering process. Factory-defined templates assure consistent application of all delayering parameters. The templates also can provide the starting point for users to develop their own recipes customized to their specific devices. Once the job is set-up, the TESCAN Delayering module executes the process automatically, with the plasma FIB providing rapid material removal, without Ga implantation or beam damage. At any time during the delayering process, users may monitor the progress by using signal peak recognition in the end-point-detection curve.

TESCAN Delayering module is supported by a team of skilled applications scientists who can assist with process development and customizations for users who want to further streamline their delayering processes.




AngelTech Live III: Watch the virtual event ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Live III was broadcast live on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and features online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

The event covered the whole spectrum of key developments affecting the compound semiconductor industry. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. This was considered a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

With 3 interactive sessions over 1 day AngelTech Live III proved to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
