                            • APX300 Plasma Dicer

                            • Plasma dicing is becoming increasingly attractive in the semiconductor market. Dies are becoming smaller and thinner and manufacturers are facing difficulties such as increasing material loss due to the width of the dicing line, mechanical damage to the dies from chipping and increasingly longer processing times due to line-by-line mechanical dicing.

                              Panasonic’s APX300 Plasma Dicer solves these challenges and simultaneously provides a higher quality product with a lower cost of production.

                              Features and benefits of Panasonic's APX300 Plasma Dicer
                              Plasma dicing requires a dicing street mask. After the mask is applied to the surface of the wafer and the dicing streets are exposed, the plasma process etches the exposed streets by a chemical reaction.

                              By using a chemical etching process, a chipping-free and particle-free process is achieved. Thanks to the use of mask patterning, narrower street widths are possible – allowing more chips to be designed onto the wafer. Furthermore, the mask patterning allows complete flexibility in chip size, shape and position.

                              The benefits of the Panasonic APX300 Plasma Dicer are:
                              • Particle-free and damage-free process
                              • Higher chip strength
                              • Yield improvements

                              The Panasonic APX300 is available in a stand-alone single chamber (1 chamber) or a multi chamber (1, 2, or 3 chambers) configuration.

                              Panasonic can provide a plasma dicing total solution to achieve a damage-free, particle-free, higher throughput and lower overall cost of production.

                            • Plasma cleaning utilizing parallel plate plasma cleaning technology.

                              The PSX307 Plasma Cleaner provides 1.5 times the productivity of conventional plasma cleaners.

                              Panasonic's parallel plate plasma chamber technology delivers superior etch uniformity compared to conventional batch-type plasma cleaner systems.

                              By using an argon plasma treatment, ultra-thin gold-plated electrodes can be wire-bonded reliably without the formation of nickel compounds. The savings achieved in cheaper gold plating can provide the ROI justification alone.
