Wafer Level Packaging Inspection Machine Market: Introduction
- Wafer level packaging inspection machines are used to detect pattern defects and physical defects on wafers. These defects are usually classified as systematic defects and random defects. Random defects are primarily caused by particles that become attached to a wafer surface, so their spots cannot be predicted. On the other hand, systematic defects are caused by the conditions of the mask and exposure process. On the basis of its working principle, wafer inspection machines are classified as patterned and non-patterned machine.
