DC believes that applications knowledge
and service support are the most important issues.
We were the first to have found the most reliable recipe
for openings of packages containing both coated and non-coated
COPPER wires using an Automated Decapsulator (SesameACID777).

And first again now for SILVER wires.
Why? We are a fabless company, and work directly with
the manufacturers to develop the best methods using the four
decapsulation techniques currently available.
Our goal is to help you select the best technique for your next
investment.
With the largest technical network in the world, you can trust
that we are here to help you.

This paper presents the meaningful consequence of a minor
Wafer Fab process variability, generating on-resistance (RDSon)
drift on low voltage vertical power N-MOSFETs dedicated to
micro-hybrid automotive application. The research challenge
concerned the fact that failure was not detected in production
but at customer level; therefore, it was determinant to understand the root cause of this failure mode to drive corrective
actions in order to secure customer by detecting and delivering correct parts. The originality of that paper concerns the
necessity to use complementary Failure Analysis (FA) investigations, needed to determine the origin of the failure without any
possibilities to perform any fault localization. First, assembly
investigations are presented to discriminate if the failure was
coming from customer or provider. Then, electrical characterizations at high current confirmed the RDSon failure. Thus,
strategic physical destructive FA approaches were combined in
order to discriminate all potential root causes, using physical
step-by-step deprocessing, FIB milling cross-sections and TEM
analysis. Finally, a nanometric layer of oxide residue was identified as the origin of the failure and corresponded to a wafer Fab
process defect, induced by a lack of oxide overetch at spacer
definition process step. These results allowed implementing
corrections and improving test screening to protect customer.

Defect localization enhancement using Light Induced CIAFP: N. Dayanand, A.C.T Quah, C.Q.Chen, S.P.Neo, G.B.Ang, M.
Gunawardana, Product Failure Analysis, GLOBALFOUNDRIES
Singapore
This paper describes the effectiveness of coupling Photovoltaic
(PV) Effect with Current Imaging – Atomic Force Microscopy
(CI-AFP) to localize defects that are not detected through
conventional CI-AFP. By operating the p-n junctions of a MOS
transistor as photovoltaic cell, and measuring the photocurrent
to generate a light induced current image, it has widened the
spectrum of defects detectable through CI-AFP. In some cases,
the precision of defect localization can also be improved.

Panel Description: Electronic components and systems used
in space and oil industries have to withstand usually harsh
environments such as extreme temperature, humidity, corrosive environments, mechanical shock and vibration, radiation,
or high E and B-fields. Reliability of those components is critical
since they cannot be replaced and/or can cause catastrophic
consequence in case of malfunction. Failures at component
and system level either resulting from reliability tests or final
assembly tests must be thoroughly investigated prior to
deployment. The panel presentations will discuss the present
methodologies and techniques for performing comprehensive
failure analysis of integrated electrical systems followed by a
panel discussion highlighting the challenges of achieving root
cause identification especially when only one unique fail device
is available.

AS6171 Counterfeit Electronics Detection Test Techniques and Implementation
Instructor: Bhanu Sood
Time: 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Room: 337 B
Course Description: This short course being offered at ISTFA 2014 begins with a brief introduction to the electronic parts supply
chain, the sources of authorized and unauthorized parts and overview of the diverse counterfeit part creation techniques. The
tools, techniques and procedures for the non-destructive, destructive and analytical technique that are part of AS6171 will be
discussed. Also included are discussions of minimum level of inspection, sampling plan based on tier level of accepted risk, and
reject criteria. Attendees will also get an overview of the certification and training requirements for each AS6171 inspection technique. In the end, authentication tools (such as DNA marking, dye pigments and barcodes) will be discussed.
Fault Isolation
Instructor: David Vallett
Time: 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Room: 338
Course Description: Technology development, yield learning, and reliability engineering are critical to the microelectronics and
now nanoelectronics business. All are highly dependent on fault isolation and failure analysis. With higher density packaging,
transistor counts into the billions, scaling below 22 nanometers, and new materials however, analysis of root cause of failures is
becoming exceedingly challenging. This course examines both traditional and recently developed tools and techniques for isolating defects on simple and advanced ICs and microelectronic devices.
Packaging FA
Instructor: Becky Holdford
Time: 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Room: 337 A
Course Description: The course will teach the basics of package failure analysis including common package construction, the
most common fault isolation tools/techniques, common fail modes/mechanisms, die access techniques for plastic and hermetic
packages, and some case studies.

Patented, ultra-high-efficiency
downstream plasma cleaner
“Absolutely the most advanced
electron microscope cleaner
on the market...”
Removes hydrocarbons in-situ from SEMs,
FIBs, TEMs and other analytical tools —
and pre-cleans samples ex-situ
Before cleaning
After GV10X cleaning
10X Faster Hydrocarbon Removal
Exclusive 5 mTorr plasma and >20W power generates greater
O 0 density with longer mfp — giving GV10X significantly
higher ashing efficiency than competitive cleaners.
Much Gentler Cleaning
Gently oxidizes hydrocarbons into molecules that are pumped
free of the chamber. No specimen damage from energetic
species, sputtering or heat.
Easy-to-use graphical user interface gives
operator full control of all functions.
Faster Start, Total Control
Universal software works on any EM — no system integration
needed. Start using GV10X in two minutes. Easy-to-use GUI
gives operator full control of all functions.
Uninterrupted Specimen Analysis
Want to clean a specimen during analysis? It’s easy. Takes just
5 minutes for GV10X to cycle On/Clean/Off — not an hour!

DC believes that applications knowledge
and service support are the most important issues.
We were the first to have found the most reliable recipe
for openings of packages containing both coated and non-coated
COPPER wires using an Automated Decapsulator (SesameACID777).

And first again now for SILVER wires.
Why? We are a fabless company, and work directly with
the manufacturers to develop the best methods using the four
decapsulation techniques currently available.
Our goal is to help you select the best technique for your next
investment.
With the largest technical network in the world, you can trust
that we are here to help you.

The X-Prep™ 3D is a specialized CNC-based
milling/grinding/polishing machine designed and
engineered to support electrical and physical
failure analysis techniques through high precision
sample preparation. This easy-to-use, highly
versatile system is capable of working with flat
(2D) and convex/concave (3D) device profiles,
providing unmatched precision and accuracy.
