Alignment/Registration


Alignment and Registration

The registration of one layer to another is the basis of the 3 dimensional silicon based semiconductor.  Typically one layer needs to be aligned to its contacted layer below by a tolerance of not more than 10% of feature size.  Transparence of the resist and defects on the wafer by the alignment locations are some of the major reasons alignment fails.  The Stepper/Scanner must have its alignment system characterized and optimized for each layer.
