USHIO Exhibits Lithography Tools for Next-Generation Packaging, Including 300-mm Interposer Stepper UX7-3Di LIS 350, at SEMICON West 2014
TOKYO --(Business Wire)--
INC. (TOKYO:6925) (President and CEO: Shiro Sugata) today announced
that at SEMICON
West 2014 (Booth #2105) the company will exhibit a series of its
lithography tools for advanced packaging applications, including the
UX7-3Di LIS 350 stepper for 3D/2.5D silicon interposers, through a panel
display as well as propose solutions for the challenges of
next-generation packaging applications. SEMICON West 2014 is being held
on July 8 through July 10 at Moscone Center in San Francisco, California.
Today, 3D packaging applications that use through-silicon via (TSV) and
2.5D/2.1D packaging applications have been spotlighted as the emerging
technologies for higher integration of semiconductor devices.
Maintaining an optimum balance between technologies and cost for volume
production has become one of major challenges for these next-generation
packaging applications. In order to provide the best solution for this
challenge, USHIO's UX7-3Di LIS 350 stepper for 3D/2.5D silicon
interposers achieves significant cost reduction with its unparalleled
performance including single-shot exposure of large substrate areas,
high throughput, and high resolution o 2 µm L/S (Line and Space).
In addition, USHIO will exhibit the Square 70 panel stepper for organic
and glass interposers for further enhancement of productivity with a
large shot size of 78 mm x 68 mm; the Align 600 maskless scanner for
fan-out WLP enabling alignment at 600 points to achieve high yield; and
the UX4 series full-field projection aligners for LED, MEMS device, and
power device applications. In addition to these lithography tools, USHIO
is introducing its next-generation packaging solution that leverages a
large-field precision projection lens (currently under development)
which can produce a super-high resolution of 1 µm L/S.
"The next-generation packaging technologies have been spotlighted as the
demand for smartphones and tablet PCs has been skyrocketing. To meet
such demanding needs, we have leased and installed a projection aligner
dedicated to developing 2.5D glass interposers at the Georgia
Tech 3D Systems Packaging Research Center (GT-PRC) in Georgia
Institute of Technology by dispatching an engineer. We have aimed at
achieving large-area patterning with the target resolution of 1 through
5 µm L/S, and will show some good results at SEMICON West 2014,"
commented Masayuki Itaba, General Manager of the Exposure Business Unit,
USHIO believes that it will be able to provide optimum solutions for the
challenges faced by users by integrating its lithography technologies
specializing in next-generation packaging applications. Please visit
USHIO Booth #2105 at SEMICON West 2014 to confirm its solutions.
