EV Group Establishes Heterogeneous Integration Competence Center

News

The Heterogeneous Integration Competence Center combines EV Group's world-class wafer bonding, thin-wafer handling, and lithography products and expertise, as well as pilot-line production facilities and services at its state-of-the-art cleanroom facilities (such as the one shown here).

EV Group (EVG), a supplier of wafer bonding and lithography equipment for the MEMS, nanotechnology and semiconductor markets, has announced that it has established the Heterogeneous Integration Competence Center, which is designed to assist customers in leveraging EVG's process solutions and expertise to enable new and enhanced products and applications driven by advances in system integration and packaging. These include solutions and applications for high-performance computing and data centers, the Internet of Things (IoT), autonomous vehicles, medical and wearable devices, photonics and advanced sensors. The Heterogeneous Integration (HI) Competence Center combines EVG's world-class wafer bonding, thin-wafer handling, and lithography products and expertise, as well as pilot-line production facilities and services at its state-of-the-art cleanroom facilities at EVG's headquarters in Austria, supported by EVG's worldwide network of process technology teams. Through the HI Competence Center, EVG will help customers to accelerate technology development, minimize risk, and develop differentiating technologies and products through heterogeneous integration and advanced packaging all while guaranteeing the highest IP protection standards that are required for working on pre-release products.

"Heterogeneous integration fuels new packaging architectures and demands new manufacturing technologies to support greater system and design flexibility, as well as increased performance and lower system design costs," stated Markus Wimplinger, corporate technology development & IP director of EV Group. "EVG's new HI Competence Center provides an open access innovation incubator for our customers and partners across the microelectronics supply chain to collaborate while pooling our solutions and process technology resources to shorten development cycles and time to market for innovative devices and applications enabled by heterogeneous integration."

EVG has an extensive background in heterogeneous integration, providing solutions for this key technology trend for more than 20 years. Among these are: permanent wafer bonding --including direct fusion and hybrid bonding for 3D packaging and metal bonding -- and die-to-wafer bonding with and without collective carriers for integration of III-V compound semiconductors and silicon as well as high-density 3D packaging; temporary bonding and debonding, including mechanical, slide-off/lift-off, and UV laser assisted; thin-wafer handling; and innovative lithography technologies, including mask aligners, coaters and developers, and maskless exposure/digital lithography.

Advanced Packaging Milestones

In the field of permanent bonding, EVG pioneered the patented SmartView® wafer-to-wafer alignment system more than 20 years ago, and has refined this technology over the years to support breakthrough technology advances such as backside-illuminated CMOS image sensors (BSI-CIS) and more recently the first demonstration of sub-100-nm wafer-to-wafer alignment overlay for hybrid bonding -- enabling devices such as 3D BSI-CIS and memory-on-logic stacking. EVG developed the first temporary bonding systems for ultra-thin wafers as early as 2001, which are essential for 3D/stacked die packaging, as well as revolutionized low-temperature laser debonding for ultra-thin and stacked fan-out packages.

EVG's HI Competence Center is designed to help enable new products and applications driven by advances in system integration and packaging. Shown here: chiplet integration by collective die-to-wafer hybrid bonding.

In lithography, EVG cemented its position as a recognized technology leader with the delivery of the first UV molding solutions for high-volume production of wafer-level optics more than a decade ago, and has since led the proliferation of nanoimprint lithography (NIL) to high-volume manufacturing (HVM). EVG continues to break speed and accuracy barriers in mask alignment lithography for advanced packaging and, more recently, unveiled the world's first highly scalable maskless exposure technology, which addresses emerging requirements in HVM back-end lithography.

AngelTech Online Summit - Tuesday 19th May

The health and well-being of AngelTech speakers, partners, employees and the overall community is our top priority. Due to the growing concern around the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in alignment with the best practices laid out by the CDC, WHO and other relevant entities, AngelTech decided to postpone the live Brussels event to 16th - 18th November 2020.

In the interim, we believe it is still important to connect the community and we want to do this via an online summit, taking place live on Tuesday May 19th at 12:00 GMT and content available for 12 months on demand. This will not replace the live event (we believe live face to face interaction, learning and networking can never be fully replaced by a virtual summit), it will supplement the event, add value for key players and bring the community together – digitally.

The event will involve 4 breakout sessions for CS International, PIC International, Sensors International and PIC Pilot Lines.

Key elements of the online summit:

  • Covering key topics of the industries
  • Live 3 hour online summit
  • 10 minute presentations – learn from experts in the industry
  • Recorded product demos
  • Live audience questions
  • Enhanced discussion and audience interaction
  • Video panel sessions
  • Sponsors digital booth (intro video, company content, lead generator, facilitate one on one video meetings with attendees)
  • Live private video meetings between two or more attendees
  • After the live event, monthly keynotes to drive traffic to the event 24/7, 365

Innovation is in AngelTech’s DNA and we are leveraging this strength to bring you an immersive and inspiring online event without the risk of travel during this uncertain period.
