Webinar : How to Improve Characterisation Efficiency for EBSD and EDS Applications

Friday 13 December

            Auckland (NZDT) : 5:00am
            Brisbane (AEST) : 2:00am
            Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Hobart (AEDT) : 3:00am
            Adelaide (ACDT) : 2:30am
            Perth (AWST) : 12:00am


Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) and EBSD are well-established microanalysis tools for today's characterisation laboratories. New developments in both hardware and software allow for improved efficiencies for users. In this webinar, improvements using EDAX's APEXTM and OIMTM Analysis software will be presented, showing users how they can accomplish more with less effort and time.

Presented by EDAX EBSD Product Manager, Matt Nowell.

Webinar : Accelerating Semiconductor Processes Control

Tuesday 17 December

            Auckland (NZDT) : 10:00pm
            Brisbane (AEST) : 7:00pm
            Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Hobart (AEDT) : 8:00pm
            Adelaide (ACDT) : 7:30pm
            Perth (AWST) : 5:00pm


Recent advances in 3D Optical Metrology accelerate in-line quality control for both front and back end processes. In this webinar, Bruker present case studies that address improving yield, identifying root cause  failure and driving next generation device development from bare wafer to final packaged device.

Bruker will highlight requirements for advanced telecommunication, compact on-board electronics, and electric vehicles covering metrology needs for denser interconnect networks, finer redistribution layer (RDL), direct wafer to wafer bonding and wafer fan-out packaging.

Front end (FEOL) examples will include:

  • Wafer bin roughness and edge roll-off
  • CMP efficiency full die flatness
  • CD metrology including TSV, deep trench RIE (Bosch process)
  • Epi layer defect quantification in high power devices

Back end (BEOL) and packaging examples will address:

  • Under Bump Metallisation (UBM)
  • Recess defect inspection
  • Full die screening for dense interconnect control

Speaker: Samuel Lesko, Senior Manager for Optical and Tribology Applications, Bruker Nano Surfaces Division
