Wafer Backgrind EESemi

Wafer Backgrind Wafer Backgrind is the process of grinding the backside of the wafer to the correct wafer thickness prior to assembly. It is also referred to as 'wafer thinning.' Wafer backgrinding has not always been necessary, but the drive to make packages thinner and thinner has made it indispensable.

Wafer backgrinding Wikipedia

Wafer backgrinding is a semiconductor device fabrication step during which wafer thickness is reduced to allow stacking and high-density packaging of integrated circuits (IC). ICs are produced on semiconductor wafers that undergo a multitude of processing steps. The silicon wafers predominantly used today have diameters of 200 and 300 mm. They are roughly 750 μm thick to ensure a minimum of mechanical stability and to avoid warping during high-temperature processing steps.

Back Grinding Determines the Thickness of a Wafer SK

Sep 24, 2020· When the wafer is thick, super fine grinding can be performed, but the thinner the wafer is, the more necessary the grinding is to be carried out. If a wafer becomes even thinner, external defects occur during the sawing process. For this reason, if the thickness of a wafer is 50㎛ or less, the process order can be changed.
