Automated defect inspection for 4”, 6” and 8” unpatterned wafers

The AWX™ FSI 200 is a fully automatic inspection tool detecting particles, scratches, area defect and micro-roughness (haze) on unpatterned wafers. The tool is equipped with one or two FSI darkfield laser inspection module(s), one dual-blade robot, pre-aligner and up to two open cassette loadports. The automated handling of different open cassette types and a pre-aligner allows wide flexibility for using this tool in various environments from R&D, production and quality assurance. The AWX inspection tool can handle 4”, 6” and/or 8” wafers enabling automatic wafer sorting based on inspection results.
