“This technology break through is proof that Checkpoint is leading the way in optical resolution for silicon IC debugging,” stated Michael Jupina, Checkpoint’s General Manager. “By incorporating a high speed visible detector in to the LTM with a Visible SIL, Checkpoint is giving its users unprecedented resolution and debugging power.”

Checkpoint has demonstrated the Vis-SIL and Visible LTM on 10 nm to 16 nm circuits. The images below show clear resolution improvement, on 16 nm IC’s, compared to a near IR SIL, greater than a factor of two while maintaining signal to noise to extract clear electrical waveforms and signal mapped images (SMI’s).

Checkpoint Technologies, LLC, is a recognized leader in the failure analysis industry supplying laser scanning and photon emission microscopy systems for diagnostic purposes used by major semiconductor manufacturers.
