Wafer Bonder Key Benefits and Features

Versatile Substrate Compatibility

The Apogee Wafer Bonder supports a wide range of substrate sizes from 50 mm to 300 mm, accommodating diverse semiconductor materials and device configurations. This flexibility ensures that the system meets the needs of various semiconductor fabrication processes.

Advanced Thermal Management

Equipped with dual heated platens featuring independent temperature controls, the Cost Effective Equipment Apogee Wafer Bonder minimises thermal defects and ensures uniform heat distribution. Self-leveling platens further reduce total thickness variation, enhancing bonding quality and consistency.

Void-Free Bonding Process

An evacuated bond chamber, combined with a unique pre-bond evacuation step where the carrier and device are kept separate, effectively eliminates voids. This critical feature ensures a flawless bond interface, significantly improving device reliability.

DataStream™ Technology Integration

Leveraging DataStream™ technology, the Apogee Temporary Wafer Bonder offers advanced process monitoring and control capabilities. With push notifications sent to any web-enabled device, engineers can stay informed about the bonding process in real-time, ensuring optimal operation and efficiency.

Unmatched Programmability and Connectivity

Intuitive Touch Screen Interface

The user-friendly touch screen interface provides easy access to a virtually unlimited number of user-defined recipe program steps. With 0.1-second resolution for step times and detailed process traceability, the Cost Effective Equipment Apogee Wafer Bonder enables precise control over every aspect of the bonding process.

Comprehensive Process Monitoring

On-line graphical process charts and logs display real-time data on piston pressure, force, temperature, vacuum, and cycle time. This level of detail supports advanced process optimisation and troubleshooting, ensuring consistent bonding performance.

Seamless Data Management

The system’s connectivity options, including USB and Ethernet ports, facilitate the effortless uploading and downloading of process parameters. Coupled with DataStream™ technology, this feature enables seamless data management and analysis for continuous process improvement.

Proven Reliability and Throughput

High Throughput with Exceptional Yield

Achieving an estimated throughput of 14-20 wafers per hour (WPH), the Apogee Wafer Bonder is optimised for process-dependent performance. This efficiency, paired with a broad compatibility with wafer materials like SiC, GaN, GaAs, InP, sapphire, silicon, and glass, ensures high yields across a wide spectrum of semiconductor applications.
