Abstract
WAFER PROBING IS THE CRITICAL LINK BETWEEN WAFER FABRICATION, AND DEVICE PACKAGING OR HYBRID SUBSYSTEM INSERTION. FOR GAAS MMICS TO BE COST EFFECTIVE, THEY MUST BE TESTED IN A MANNER THAT IS RELIABLE, FAST, AND EFFICIENT. THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A PROGRAM TO DEVELOP EQUIPMENT AND TECHNIQUES FOR HIGH RATE, HIGH VOLUME MMIC WAFER PROBING. PHASE I OF THIS PROGRAM WILL INCLUDE AN EXPERIMENT USING EXISTING EQUIPMENT AND MMICS, AND RESEARCH TO DEFINE THE PRESENT STATE-OF-THE-ART, TO IDENTIFY THOSE AREAS WHICH MUST BE APPROACHED. HARDWARE COMPATIBLE WITH ACCURATE, HIGH-SPEED MICROWAVE TESTING, AND TECHNIQUES FOR INTERFACING THIS EQUIPMENT TO MMICS ON-WAFER WILL BE INVESTIGATED. REDUCING THE COST OF THE FINAL MMIC DEVICE BY EFFECTIVE SORTING OF DIE IS THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE OF THIS WORK.
