Every lab can now produce accurate, reproducible pre-cavitated, thinned and perfectly polished dice for backside analysis. Flip-chip and power chip mechanical decapsulation is now straightforward and accurate. ASAP-1®  DECAP brings cost-effective, bench-top advanced decapsulation and selected area polishing to the electronics community. 

The die, whether in packaged or wafer form, is mounted on a specially designed traveling table oscillates in the X and Y directions.  A rotating tool, controlled in the Z-Direction, means reproducible grinding can be carried out to a specific thickness (routinely to less than 50mm of remaining silicon), finishing with a scratch-free mirror polish. This yields a surface ready for NIR imaging and backside analysis.

By changing tools, in conjunction with loose or fixed abrasives, a scratch-free surface is produced. Heating of the substrate is minimal during processing due to the low damage nature of the process.
