Automated Sub-micron Die Bonder for Photonics Production

Prototype2Production Bonder

The FINEPLACER® femto 2 is a fully-automated die bonder with a placement accuracy of 0.5 µm @ 3 sigma.

A complete machine enclosure allows very demanding applications in a controlled environment. Fully protected from external influences, the system stands for highly stable assembly processes with the focus on maximum yield.

The new generation of the femto platform adds numerous innovations to the proven technical basis. This includes the cutting-edge FPXvisionTM. Combined with a refined pattern recognition, this all-new Vision Alignment System opens up a new dimension of application flexibility and accuracy. IPM Command, the fully revamped FINEPLACER® operating software, supports a consistent, ergonomic and clearly structured process development.

Depending on the requirements, the modular FINEPLACER® femto 2 can be individually configured and retrofitted at any time to support new applications and technologies. This makes the system a perfect tool and reliable companion as applications migrate from product development to production. It covers the entire workflow of inspection, characterization, packaging, final test and qualification in semiconductor, communications, medical and sensor technologies.

  • Placement accuracy 0.5 μm @ 3 sigma
  • Fully-automated operation

Functions - Modules - Enhancements

Our solutions are as individual as our customers' requirements and offer a wide range of configuration options. In addition to the system's basic functions, which are part of the standard functional range, numerous process modules are available for each system. Retrofittable at any time, they enable additional bonding technologies and processes either directly or as part of a module package. A selection of functional enhancements and accessory systems make daily work with the machine easier and help to make certain technology and process sequences even more efficient.

Automatic Tool Changer

Use different tools or tool tips, automatic exchange in process.

Bonding Force Module (automatic)

Enhances the existing Bond force range and allows the use of software controlled process forces.

Chip Heating Module

Direct contact heating from the top with chip specific tool design to apply temperature from the chip side. E.g. used for thermocompression, gluing or ACA bonding

Component Presentation

Ensures safe handling of components from GelPak®, VR trays, waffle packs or tape holders.

Die Eject Module

Used to pick up components directly from blue tape.

Die Flip Module

Used to flip components prior to face-down assembly.

Dispense Support Module

Motorized feed unit to move dispenser into working or parking position.

Dispense Unit

Various types of dispensing systems to apply flux, solder paste, adhesive or other material.

Flip Chip Test Module

The “Known Good Die Testing” allows chip probing/ testing prior to the bonding process.

Formic Acid Module

Creates an inert or reactive (CH2O2) process atmosphere. Used to reduce and prevent oxidation during soldering (e.g. eutectic or indium bonding). Add-on for Substrate Heating Modules.


Innovative digital beam splitter with two HD cameras provides highest optical resolution across a large field of view.

Handling Module

Used to handle and rotate substrates up to 360° independently from the bonding tool.

Height Measurement (Autofocus)

Allows automatic focus setting of component and substrate as well as height measurements.

Height Scanner (LASER)

Allows sensing of heights by means of Laser triangulation for measuring purposes.

Laser-assisted Bonding Module

Allows ultra-fast heat cycles du to an integrated high power laser source

Pattern Recognition

Software tool to recognize various alignment marks. Used to control the position or alignment between component and substrate.

Process Gas Module

Creates an inert or reactive (H2N2) atmosphere in an enclosure. Used to prevent or reduce oxidation during soldering or bonding.

Process Video Module

Allows the in-situ observation of the working area during the bonding process.

Scrubbing Module

Improve the wetting condition of bonding surfaces and reduces voids. Oxide layers are scrubbed off in a low frequency mechanical sonic process.

Substrate Heating Module

Various direct contact heating options to heat up substrates from the bottom during the process. Substrate-specific fixations available. Optionally with process gas integration. Used e.g. for thermocompression, gluing or thermosonic bonding

Substrate Support

Unheated support plate with substrate specific fixation (e.g. vacuum) to clamp various substrates.

Target Finder

Enables coarse position alignment of the table to the tool with the help of a laser spot.

Traceability Module

Automatic recognition of all process relevant parameters (e.g. temperature, force, etc.) as well as associated component details (e.g. serial numbers).

Ultrasonic Module

Enables ultrasonic or thermosonic bonding. Transmits mechanical energy based on lateral movement of the ultrasonic transducer to the component while it is in contact with the substrate.

UV Curing Module

Provides ultra violet light in various wave length for adhesive processes without thermal influence.

Vacuum Chamber Module

Enables bonding processes within a system integrated vacuum chamber. No extra handling steps and fully software controlled.

Wafer Heating Module

Special substrate heating module designed for large wafers. Very uniform heat distribution during chip to wafer or wafer to wafer bonding.


FINEPLACER® femto 2 - High Accuracy Automatic Die Bonder

The FINEPLACER® femto 2 bonder offers a precise large working stage, large device 3D handling, extended FOV, ultra HD vision system, and multicolor illumination. System features include a process gas enclosure, low and high bond force, and a local cleanroom environment.

FINEPLACER® femto 2 - Tacking, Bump Bonding

Population of a sensor substrate with several readout chips. Integrated oven process for preparation (bump forming with formic acid) and connection of the fine-pitch bump arrays via tack bonding (indium). Followed by a global reflow process in inert atmosphere.

FINEPLACER® femto 2 - Die Flipping Unit

Integrated die flip module automatically flips chips of various sizes and thickness. Can be used for chips that are presented with the bond side facing upward. Interchangeable platforms of the unit allow for component-specific adaptation.
