Session 1 – Streamlining Operations

Test operations, generally considered costly yet necessary, add value to device manufacturing when optimized for efficiency. This session offers a variety of approaches that promise high yields, lean manufacturing, maximized performance at minimal costs, and optimized production times. The first paper discusses a method of incorporating multidimensional Monte Carlo analysis simulation with known design parameters to focus manufacturing improvement efforts and maximize alignment performance while minimizing costs. Presented next is a method for redefining test tooling design rules to gain process margin and prevent substrate chipping caused by test handler misalignment. Zero-cost, software based, virtual tool checkers that bring the whole production area towards a manufacturing LEAN direction is then discussed. Wrapping things up is a paper on a screwless socket and dual pin testing concept said to greatly enhance the robustness and efficiency of IC testing.
