FIB circuit edit and rapid prototyping

Time to market is a critical factor in the success of semiconductor devices. Manufacturing timelines are long and difficult to manage, so it is important that early production runs provide functional devices. Late discovery of design issues limiting device performance at final test can lead to months of delays in product introduction timelines while new mask sets are created, and new devices are manufactured.

Circuit edit systems provide a solution to test and validate design changes, optimize performance, prototype, and scale functional devices for internal and external customer’s development, validation, and qualification. Circuit edit systems utilize high-resolution focused ion beams (FIBs) and advaced chemistries to perform “nano-surgery” on semi-conductor devices, cutting and creating connections within the device to correct design issues and return functioning products. These working devices keep projects on track without the costs and delays of new mask sets.

Circuit edit systems

With the Thermo Scientific Centrios and Centrios HX Circuit Edit Systems, you can manage program costs, avoid schedule delays, and accelerate time-to-market. The Centrios HX System is designed to meet the circuit editing needs of today’s most advanced semiconductor devices. The Centrios System provides circuit edit capability suitable for a wide range of applications where the required circuit edit performance can be delivered with an improved cost of ownership. Both systems are optimized for the modern, competitive technology world.

Resources


circuit-edit-480x260

Fundamentals of Circuit Edit eBook

While circuit editing is a well-established technique, it can be especially difficult for those who are new to it. To help you get started, we asked our circuit edit customers what they wish they had known when they started doing FIB circuit edit and collected their feedback, as well as input from our team of experts, in our new eBook: Fundamentals of Circuit Edit. The eBook includes:

  • A definition of circuit edit
  • An overview of focused ion beams
  • Circuit edit tips from experienced practitioners
  • Descriptions of key circuit edit tools and solutions
