ELECTRICAL & THERMAL TESTS

TECH TIP

Artifacts… Do not forget to make electrical measurement before and after a decapsulation. With decapsulation you will have some possible artifact, acid, Plasma, Thermal reactions. But also Mechanical due to the relaxation of the die and wires. So an electrical test after a thermal curing at the temperature of the Acid or Plasma decap will help you to understand the artifact you can have.

S707

(Ambiant tempeture to +250°C) SESAME707, A NEW TOOL ? Yes, and No! The first patent for decapsulation apparatus was granted to Burt Wensink in 1982. At that time he worked for National Semiconductor. This patent was in turn licensed to Bert Wagner who developed the first commercial acid decapsulator. From his pioneering approach to IC package decapsulation until now there have been only a few minor improvements, but no real breakthroughs in decapsulator design - until now. Kirk Martin, now with RKD Engineering, has patented many techniques with IC decapsulation. His first patent was awarded in 1998. The most recent patent is pending for current technology improvements (2010). Kirk Martin, from RKD Engineering, introduced the EliteEtch early in 2000. This unit utilized new pump technology, developed by Mr. Martin that achieved substantially greater turbulence in the etched cavity, thereby reducing both process times and acid consumption. RKD Engineering also pioneered the use of a cooling system for the waste acid allowing the use of a single waste bottle. This design has been in use for many years.

S777Cu

(+10°C to +250°C) ABOUT SESAME777Cu

Automated Dual Acid IC Decapsulator - innovative software - dynamic etch time adjustment - multiple acid rinse options - smallest footprint

As you may know DIGIT CONCEPT published its first technical paper at IMAPS2003 with the Freescale France Team researching problems with Aluminium Corrosion following chemical decapsulation. This was the beginning of our studies and the impetus for exploring lower decapsulation temperatures. For a long time we used 44°C, then 27°C in order to preserve copper bond wires. A few years ago we have been working on trials with sub room temperature acid decapsulation. The results were very promising. The S777Cu Dual Acid Decapsulator is the result of our work in this area with Kirk Martin. RKD Engineering has patented this technique.

S707 Ambiant Temperature to +250°C Versatile System Configuration HANDHELD KEYPAD Operational simplicity results not only from software that continually checks and protects the system against operator error, but control from the Handheld Keypad is simple and intuitive. Anyone who can use a mobile phone can run a S707 Decapsulator. The remote control can be placed outside of the Fume Hood increasing the life time of the electronics parts and increasing the safety of the operator. Fume Hood space is always at a premium so we have designed the smallest footprint in the industry while enhancing every possible safety feature. The incorporation of a separate heat exchanger for cooling waste acid below 90oC permits this size reduction. Now we only need a single waste bottle. LookAhead software eliminates the danger of waste bottle overflow by preventing operation of the S 707 if the waste bottle does not have sufficient space in it for the programmed etch process to complete.

FIXTURES and ACCESSORIES S707 can use all the accessory kits, gaskets and alignment plates. However, for significant cost savings and the advantage of always having the ability to design and cut gaskets for each and every package type, we recommend to use our material sheet. You can easily produce your gasket with the SesameLASER, or by our large choice of standard Gaskets and alignement plates.

DIGITAL PERISTALSIS PUMPING S707 employs an unique solution to ensure precise pumping of corrosive acids. This revolutionary design, of a multi-chamber fluid-metering module is protected by patents pending for its inventor Mr. Kirk Martin

GASKETS

The device hold down assembly (ram nose) is pneumatically activated and is designed for a large amount of travel. The ram nose is normally retracted and only extends after the safety cover is fully closed. The vertical movement of the ram nose secures the device to the etch head thus eliminating movement of either the package or its fixturing.

Open Safety cover open to show ram nose linear motion of travel that eliminates the possibility of package/ gasket movement so often found in other systems where the ram travels through an arc

Closed TECH TIP

You need a specific gasket or alignment plateâ&#x20AC;Ś But you do not own a SesameLASER and you do not want to wait 3 weeks ! See our SesameGASKET MAKER 8

SAFETY COVER

S777cu +10°C to +250°C THE FIRST ACID DECAPSULATOR MADE FOR COPPER… BUT NOT ONLY The S777Cu is an Automated Mixed Acid Decapsulator based on S707, with advanced feature integration to enable high productivity. This Decapsulator rapidly and easily opens even the most delicate packages by delivering precise, micro-aliquots of nitric, sulfuric, or acid mixes to the package with no sample damage. The delivery of each micro-aliquot is done with sufficient pressure to create extreme turbulence in the etched cavity that greatly accelerates the rate of encapsulant removal. Very low, precise acid temperatures, combined with high micro-aliquot delivery rates allow for the decapsulation of copper wired devices with no wire or metallization damage. An exclusive acid delivery function can be selected that delivers the highest pulse rate possible while consuming less than maximum acid volume. The specially designed acid heat exchanger can accurately control acid temperature down to 10°C and up to 250°C, with flow rates to 8 ml. per minute. The high acid pulse rates achieve reasonable etch times even at the lowest temperatures.

255°C Temperature

The monolithic etch head is machined from premium grade silicon carbide for unsurpassed acid resistance. The etch head is designed to reduce the fuming of any residual acids left on the etch head at the end of the process.

In the past

About the use of a LASER for precavitation In order to reduce the chemicals etch time. We have co-published 9 articles on this subject (ISTFA, IPFA, ESREF, etc.). As a result of our research, the required use of +250°C for decapsulation of thermal plastic parts 20 years ago has been reduced to +10°C today!

888

TECH TIP

The goal is to remove the surface material (50μm) to either reduce the opening time at a given temperature, or decrease the temperature for the same opening time with less acid. • Use an 800 Grid Paper • Do a 8 with the side to open on the grid paper • Do this 8 times 888

In 2003

10°C Today

Years

What temperature do I have to use for LASER precavitation? It depends on the following: - EMC (Epoxy Molding Compound), - Percentage of Glass ball filler in the EMC (93% or more), - If the copper wires have Pd coating or not, - With or without prior LASER ablation, - Acid types Used such as HNO3 98%, H2SO4_20%SO3 ... - Residual water in the package and in the Acids used - The rinse recipe As such, many parameters can affect the sample and the choice of decapsulation and precavitation techniques.

LASER decapsulation The SesameLASER is the standard LASER ablation system that enables pre-decapsulation of packages.

Key applications for the SesameLASER. WHY GO TO LASER

Security is not in option for us. The suction unit we deliver in standard is a very good one with many protections for the Users and very quiet.

• Reduce time to opening • Reduction of the consumption of acid and the related risks. • Allows removal of all the resin on the surface of a package (BGA for instance) which is impossible with wet chemistry. • Lower temperature final clean up with chemical decapsulation. This is done at 40°C, or even 27°C and now 10°C ! which induces much lower thermal stresses. • No more “wrapping in aluminum sheet” during manual opening and no more specific gaskets (opening shape). • Single bonds can be revealed (Gold, Cu, Aluminum) • Marking and machining of other materials • Pre-thinning in Back-Side of ceramic packages • Numbering of the samples • Pre-cavitation of power devices • Circuitry can often be revealed without acid • Complex-shaped cavities can be made • Exposure of components without damage of Al, Cu, Au bondings • For applications requiring subsequent acid clean-up, low temperature, low corrosion conditions can be used. • Glob top removal (flip chipped or wired dies on PCB or ceramic) • Gaskets Maker • Cross section preparation • Bonding cut • Thin PCB cut • Small cavity allowing visual check on a wire or on PCB or on stitch • Full BGA/QFN... decap down to PCB • Glued cover glass removal (ceramic package) • Silicon frame preparation (polishing preparation to decrease edge effect) • Disassembling of complex mechanical assembly by surgical cuts (motorized lens in front of ccd sensor, MEMS...) • All bonding access for shear test • Allows reduced temperatures for wet decap and shorter opening times for Dry decap. • Decap onto Hybrid Module • … a real Swiss knife

Our experience with laser decap dates back to 2001, allowing us to confidently say that there will be no damage to bond wires (Au, Al, Cu) and no artifacts during LASER decapsulation. Many papers describing this have been written by our Customers.

Other upgrade options include: A plasma option can be integrated (if requested) turning the SesameLASER into a SesamePLASER for which we have a Worldwide patent. SesameDUOLASER (second LASER wavelength for Cross Section, other ablation material like Glass, PCB …). The option SesameENDPT (End point detection) will also be adaptable to the S1000 in the near future. The option SESAMECOLDMountPLATE (Temperature Control with a TEC). And other… see options. Many other LASER ablation recipes have been developed for all types of applications from the manufacturing of gaskets for JetEtcher, to the ablation of ceramic packages in the case of IC prototype, etc.

S500ULTRA The S500Ultra utilizes and incorporates industry standard testing methods to solve the problems faced everyday in the Semiconductor Industry. The S500Ultra utilizes a patent pending multi wavelength Laser process in conjunction with the latest Alpha Spectrometry. The S500 Ultra provides a multitude of safe and economical processes. The operator can remove the entire compound, individual layers (operator determines layer thickness) or sections of the mold compound (operator defined).

S500GEL Laser decapsulation system engineered with a patent process specifically for the removal of different types of gel encapsulants from the surface of an integrated circuit. Unlike anything on the market today, the S500GEL laser decapsulation system will remove just about any type of gelbased mold compound found on even the most durably-built samples. Seen frequently in the automotive manufacturing industry and United States Military and Defense sectors for its robust and hermetic-sealing properties, historically speaking gel encapsulant has been notoriously difficult to remove by other means. The S500GEL decapsulation system puts an end to this problem with its proprietary gel removal technique not seen in any other system; only the S500GEL laser decapsulation system can perform this elite function. In literally seconds, the S500GEL can remove that pesky gel mold compound so that you can be on your way with your testing. Whether that testing comprises failure analysis or counterfeit detection, the die will retain complete functionality and remain in perfect condition â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as if it had just been scribed from its wafer.

is a spinner used for the cleaning of integrated circuit devices between backside processing steps. A high-pressure dispensing pump sprays the device being cleaned with different cleaning solutions while the device is rotated at high speed. The force of the spray dislodges debris from the grinding, lapping, and polishing process while the rotation of the part removes this debris from the die surface. Both waste liquids and debris drain into a waste bottle located on the side of the unit next to the solution source bottles. A typical cleaning process has a source bottle containing D.I. water and another containing a solvent e.g. isopropanol. The part to be cleaned, while mounted to its holding fixture, is placed on the spindle and the safety cover closed. The part is spun at the programmed RPM and the pump dispenses the solvent for a programmed time. The device is then rinsed with D.I. water and finally dried with either dry nitrogen gas or compressed air. The entire process occurs in a closed chamber eliminating any safety issues resulting from an improperly mounted device. The device and its holding fixture are always cleaned together, thus eliminating the need to re-mount the device. This of course reduces the chance of transferring any diamond particles into the next â&#x20AC;&#x153;backsideâ&#x20AC;? processing step. A special process is included that allows for spinning of the device without any dispensing of cleaning liquids. This process can be used for applying anti-reflective coatings on a die that has been completely polished. PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS - Effectively cleans devices during backside processing - Self contained - contains source and waste bottles - Part is cleaned on its holding fixture, cleaning both - Part does not need to be re-mounted - Easy to use operator interface - Special cycle for Anti Reflective coatings - Up to 30 stored process programs

SesameHOTMOUNTPLATE S610 Is a specially designed hot plate used for wax mounting of integrated circuit packages in preparation for backside thinning and polishing. The unit heats the sample holding fixture at a controlled rate thereby preventing thermal damage to the sample during mounting. When the programmed temperature is reached, the operator is prompted to mount and align the sample. After alignment and mounting the unit cools the sample and holding fixture at a controlled rate to harden the mounting wax. When the sample is cooled to room temperature, the operator is prompted to remove the mounted device and holder.

INTRODUCTION

With the continual shrinking of devices and the introduction of new materials such as copper bond wires [1], chemical, mechanical and plasma decapsulation [2] have nearly reached their limits. For instance, chemical decapsulation may damage the copper bond wires, the die or interconnections, since it is isotropic in nature [3, 4]. Laser decapsulation is a promising failure analysis (FA) technique, which works with high speed and precision. Besides, it minimizes the effects of corrosion and overetching of leadframes [2-4]. Apart from being able to alleviate some of the problems of chemical, mechanical and plasma decapsulation, laser decapsulation is not constrained by geometry and it provides a good selectivity of plastic ablation over metals [5]. However, laser decapsulation may cause thermal stresses [2], damages to metallization or passivation [4], and thermal elevation or electrostatic damages (ESD) [6] to devices. Therefore, the aim of this work is to investigate the effectiveness of incorporating a thermoelectric cooler (TEC) on a cooling plate below the sample during laser ablation to reduce the thermal effects. II. EXPERIMENTAL DETAILS A. Experimental Setup The laser decapsulation system used in this project is the Sesame 1000 from Digit Concept, with a Nd:YAG laser (1064 nm) and a maximum power of 10 W. The sample is a high voltage power Schottky rectifier STPS80170C comprising two diodes, as shown in Fig. 1.

Reverse Current ()

Abstract – Ablation was carried out on high voltage Schottky rectifiers at 25°C and -5°C (with a thermoelectric cooler or TEC), at 1.0 W and 3.9 W of laser power. In-situ measurement of the reverse current was conducted and correlated to the device junction temperature. It was found that the usage of a TEC increases the number of laser scans to reach the set current compliance of 100 µA after exposing the die, for ablation at 3.9 W, although eventual damage to the device is still unavoidable. The incorporation of a TEC below the sample is also demonstrated to be effective in reducing the device junction temperature during laser ablation.
