New Wave Research Unveils Compact, Tabletop Microelectronics Machining System
Fremont, Calif., November 26, 2001 - New Wave Research has unveiled AccuLaze, a compact, tabletop microelectronics machining system. AccuLaze has been designed for applications such as thick- or thin-film resistor and capacitor trimming, hole drilling, LCD repair and materials marking and etching. This versatile instrument is also ideal for semiconductor failure analysis applications including circuit isolation and polyimide and passivation removal.
A compact and completely self-contained system, AccuLaze is available in six different wavelengths from deep UV (213 nm) to IR (1064 nm). This allows users to match the system's wavelength to the absorption level of the material to be processed, making AccuLaze an ideal machining system for a wide array of materials.
Each system includes a rugged Nd:YAG laser, a high-magnification video system, and control software to allow trimming and repairing of a variety of micro devices. The system's software package controls all laser parameters, device viewing and stage positioning, in addition to automated job control for lines, spots, polygons, CAD files and alphanumeric characters.
Repetition rates vary depending on the model selected-up to 10 kHz for the J-models and up to 30 Hz for the P- and T-models. Spot sizes range from 10 - 150 pm. In addition, AccuLaze is available with various precision stage sizes offering sub-micron resolution from 2" x 2" to 8" x 8". Several different objective lenses are also available.
Established in 1990, New Wave Research manufactures a range of small, pulsed Nd: YAG laser systems for semiconductor failure analysis, LCD repair, laser ablation for ICP mass spectroscopy, particle image velocimetry, OEM and other scientific and industrial applications.
