The FLIPCHIP,  FINEPLACER pico ma uses a precision optical system to align patterns on a small chip ( up to 20 x 20 mm) over patterns on a substrate (up to 100 x 100 mm, ). Alignment and placement  accuracy is 5 microns. The two devices are then pressed together with a force, up to a maximum of 20 N (4.5 lb.). Temperature profiles (up to 450 deg. C) for the substrate support and for the chip holder are programmable for solder re-flow, or solder paste.  A fiber optic UV source is also available for UV curing adhesives. A dispensing system is available for adhesives or solder pastes.


The tool is now located in Phillips Hall 154
