Abstract:
Key company purchases Atomic Force Prober (AFP) to help solve FA issues at lower technology nodes. Failure analysts support the choice of the AFP over other tools, given new challenges arising from shrinking technology.

Tool Order: MultiProbe Ships Six-Head Atomic Force Proper (AFP)

Santa Barbara, CA | Posted on October 8th, 2009

After a thorough evaluation of competitive tools, a major microelectronics company has selected the MultiProbe AFP to help it stay competitive in an industry whose key players are jockeying for the lead in delivering smaller, faster devices.

"I would say that the AFP technique in most cases, is the determinant technique [for identifying root cause], especially regarding lower technologies, below 45nm," says one global competitor.

"The AFP has definitely added a capability that did not exist before. Optical limitations make traditional electrical probing a thing of the past, as features can no longer be resolved; and chamber FIB/SEM probing leads to sample damage and inaccurate results as well as tying up a tool," says another.

The MultiProbe AFP offers both nanoprobing and simultaneous fault isolation imaging in a single tool (topography, current imaging and scanning capacitance).
