EtherCAT Solution for Integrated IC Packaging Machine

Posted by Kari Grosser on Aug 1, 2018 10:45:00 AM

The semiconductor industry has some of the most demanding applications, a combination of extreme accuracy and precision combined with high throughput. The semiconductor processing can be divided into two parts - "frontend" and "backend".

The term Backend refers to dicing the wafer into individual chips and all the processors thereafter; such as test, assembly and packaging. 

To deal with faster and more powerful chip technology, semiconductor process linewidth technology has continued to evolve down to the nano-level, and the backend of semiconductor processes also needs to provide a shorter production cycle, in order to increase production throughput per unit of time.
