ASAP-1 IPS

Digital Selected Area Preparation System

ASAP-1® IPS is a digital sample preparation system for the decapsulation, thinning and polish­ing of packaged wafer-level devices.

Drawing on ULTRA TEC’s market knowledge and long-standing leadership in electronic sample preparation, IPS is ‘device centric’ – designed to meet the non-destructive, high yield and survivability needs of micro-electronic components.

IPS’ Touch Screen OS has been designed from the ground-up to control all aspects of the sample preparation process. Advanced programming drives IPS’s deep sub-micron axes of motion. The machine vision monitor provides an unique ‘always-live’ image of the device, along with key navigational and process information.

The touch-off tool control provides Z-position at pre-defined locations and pressures – enabling package and die tilt to be corrected quickly and accurately. Tool height variations are automatically-calibrated.
