Thin Wafer Dicing Equipment Market – Overview
A wafer is a thin slice of semiconductor material and dicing is the process which is used to cut or groove semiconductors, glass crystal and many other types of materials. Instrument used during this process is known as dicing equipment. The dicing technologies are constantly evolving due to the rising demand in thinner wafer and stronger die, in that way making a significant impact on the dicing equipment industry. Grinding is also a procedure in which the wafer thickness are reduced according to the needs of different industries such as electronics, automotive and communication devices among others. Now a days the thin wafer handling and processing is performed by temporary bonding to a rigid carrier wafer and the rigid carrier wafer gives mechanical support during wafer thinning and backside processing. After backside processing the thin wafer is detached from a carrier wafer and attached to dicing tape on film frame. It is now seen that the integration of microelectronics into several consumer electronics and smart cards needed for thinner wafers are increasing rapidly. Technologies like RFID, MEMS devices, and power devices are considered to be the major source of demand for these thin wafers. Many new processes such as chemical mechanical polishing (CMP) are increasingly being integrated into the processing phase along with grinding operations.
