5-Axis CNC Mill for Selected Area Sample Preparation

Based on a many years of customer input and product development, ULTRA TEC has delivered a single-footprint system that can incorporate an RST Measurement System --allowing measurement of the thickness of remaining silicon without sample transfer. 
ASAP-1 IN SITU includes an entirely new OS, driven by a large touchscreen or mouse & keyboard (and even remotely), that allows for ultimate control of all process parameters -- helping to ensure decap, thinning and polishing success.
The System builds upon the machining specifications and modules available to ASAP-1 IPS, but adds a range of additional features, made possible by additional processing power and the addion of RST.

CAM SELECT ON ASAP-1 IN SITU from ULTRA TEC Manufacturing, Inc. .






A Powerful New Custom Operating System 


An all-new touchscreen OS brings powerful features to help ensure success in all your decap, thinning and polishing applications. 3 high definition cameras -- Target (Straight-down), Process (45 degree), 
and RST/Microscope -- bring the ability to set, monitor and evaluate sample prep progress directly on the screen.

3D Upgrade Modules


Curvature Correction

Adds sample curvature definition   – Suits decapsulation, thinning, and polishing of packaged dice showing warpage or non-flat conditions. Independent X & Y Axis Correction, AUTOCURVE Mode.  Also adds Stage AUTOTILT function

6686.1 Heat & Cool Thermal Relaxation and Stability Upgrade Adds thermal relaxation capability for warped die. Peltier-based heating plate with 1C accuracy. Hot Plate mode for convenient sample mount/demount. Includes stage, cable, two custom mounting plates with nylon retention screws -- as 6366.1 but adds Chiller unit and software to allow for faster cooling and overall enhanced system thermal stability


Characterization Modules


End-Point Module

High impedance / small capacitance based -- Hardware and Software Upgrade to add end-pointing for enhancement of decap and de-processing


Through-Silicon Measurement System

UT-F3 Thickness Reflectance Measurement System

Offers single or multi-point non-contact measurement (1280-1340nm) of silicon and other semiconductor substrates – measures down to approx. 10 microns RST.  Adds a third 4K (UHD) Camera mounted at the RST Position.


Vis Extension

2nd “VIS” Spectrometer added to the F3 system (requires UT-F3) to allow for measurements down to 10nm RST
