Inspection and metrology solutions of Semiconductors

Fan-Out packaging is the enhancement of standard wafer-level packaging (WLP) where the connections are “fanned-out” of the chip surface, enabling more external I/Os. Fan-out WLP provides a smaller package footprint along with improved thermal and electrical performance compared to conventional packages, and allows having higher number of contacts without increasing the die size.

Panel level packaging (PLP) involves embedding both active (IC) and passive components directly within PCB during its fabrication structure as opposed to mounting components on the finished board.

CIMS solution provides a reliable and cost-effective inspection and metrology solution to ensure high quality of the fan-out WLP and PLP boosting yield and productivity offering the optimal trade-off between escapes and overkill.

LTCC – low temp co-fried ceramics

LTCC is a substrate technology that provides reliable, high density electrical interconnection for active and passive components on ceramics base. LTCC packages offer a number of advantages over traditional packaged circuits in terms good thermal conductivity combines with low coefficient of thermal expansion, robustness against mechanical and thermal stress and low prduction cost. LTCC technology is widely used in mobile communication technology.

CIMS offers dedicated solutions for inspection of wide variety of LTCC products at different production stages, various types of ceramics and range of substrate thicknesses. Thanks to our innovative metrology, verification and data management solutions, our solutions take LTCC inspection to the next level.
