The end of node scaling is approaching. Therefore, the need to start scaling the packages is growing constantly. Fan out wafer-level packaging (FO-WLP) offers an efficient solution due to its possibility for high IO count, thin package and short development times. The process flow to build a so called redistribution layer (RDL) requires a full lithography and plating cycle. To ensure a reliable product, all involved process steps need to be tightly monitored and controlled accurately. The challenge here: how to measure step height of pads or under bump metallization (UBM) features on structures that are not completely flat and show height variations. The answer = interferometry.
In this webinar hosted by SMTA, we’ll explore ways to tackle that problem and introduce the work flow of a stable algorithm to evaluate the above mentioned features automatically for different devices. We will discuss how White Light Interferometry (WLI) and Spectral Coherence Interferometry (SCI) can be used to achieve fast and accurate measurements of step heights, critical dimensions (CDs) of pads, UBM structures, as well as polymer thickness. We will share data taken from measurements – displaying full wafer maps, 3D profiles, and identifying the anomalies that are revealed.

Food flavors are chemically very diverse. They impart a wide range of favorable and unfavorable sensations to the human nose, and have a wide range of sensory thresholds. Conventional analytical technologies, like gas chromatography, lack the time resolution, responsiveness, and comprehensiveness of analysis required to provide rapid feedback to product developers or process-line managers.
Selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) is a revolutionary direct analysis technology for fast, sensitive, selective, and robust analysis of flavor compounds in air at trace levels. SIFT-MS analysis is robust to humidity, so can be applied in diverse applications, from the process line right through to in vivo flavor release in the R&D laboratory.
This webinar will introduce the SIFT-MS technique, its automation, and present a variety of food and flavor applications, including:
- Headspace and in vivo flavor analysis
- Process monitoring
- Sensory screening
- Packaging testing

Airborne molecular contaminants (AMCs) cause major product quality issues in modern semiconductor fabrication, even at very low levels (ppb concentrations and below). Currently multiple different tools are used to detect certain classes of AMCs with varying degrees of effectiveness.
Selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) is a unique analytical tool that provides comprehensive, high-sensitivity detection of volatile organic, and semivolatile organic compounds (VOCs and SVOCs), and inorganic gases (including HCl, HF, and SOx) within seconds. As a single, comprehensive tool with rapid analysis, SIFT-MS provides great economic benefit because it detects and identifies issues faster, resulting in reduced product losses.
