Products on display will include SCHOTT’s miniMML integrated vision unit, high-brightness ColdVision LLS 3 LED light source, and its IR-MEMS Inspector for examining silicon wafers in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) manufacturing. SCHOTT will be exhibiting these products at Semicon West in San Francisco on July 9-11, 2013 at booth #515.

Featuring a 15-mm low-profile body, the miniMML integrates into one unit a telecentric lens, coaxial and oblique LED illumination, WVGA CMOS camera, LED power supply and controller, and all necessary cables. At 1/20 the size of conventional imaging setups, the miniMML eliminates the need for component selection and setting adjustment while offering near distortion-free performance with power and I/O over a locking USB-2.0 interface.

Another component crucial to inspection of manufacturing processes, as well as other applications, is the LLS 3. The ColdVision Series LLS 3 LED light source boasts high brightness, achieving 150W halogen lamp levels. Available in both cool and warm white color temperatures, this light source was designed to be coupled with high-quality fiber optic light guides for high-intensity and high-uniformity illumination. Its main applications include semiconductor, PCB, web, and other line scan inspection applications; high performance factory automation; pharmaceutical packaging inspection; and halogen replacement for energy and environmental initiatives.

SCHOTT’s IR-MEMS Inspector identifies defects during MEMS wafer manufacturing. The fine structures of such components are easily damaged by dust or micro-particles, and quality assurance is often difficult—use of microscopes is time-consuming and inaccurate, while a fully automated inspection is often prohibitive for smaller companies and fabs. The IR-MEMS Inspector unites sub-micron accuracy and the advantages of automated inspection by monitoring the infrared light given off by the silicon substrate used to construct the MEMS.
