MESOSCOPE Technology is much more than designing future analysis methodology for semiconductors. This was evident in our conversation with the company. Read more to get interesting insights.
Tell us about the vision and mission of MESOSCOPE technology. What do you think makes the company different from other manufacturing brands?
MESOSCOPE Technology was founded with the sole mission of providing advanced and empirically tested solutions for all the semiconductor development issues. The subsequent vision of the company is to smartly outgrow the constraints that are applied to the measurement and field level application of the semiconductors in different arenas.
We are also driven by the purpose of being the forerunner in nano probe technology and device failure analysis while also comprehending the best and most efficient way of bestowing different methods of measurements for the next generation challenges that the future technology is yet to present us with.
As for being different from others, according to me the uniqueness of MESOSCOPE Technology lies in its profuse and endless search for ways of contributing to the installation of new measurement methodologies for semiconductor devices.
Apart from this, our company also focuses on solving the problems that would likely be brought about by the future technologies. We like to study and anticipate the most adequate consequences and future developments in order to introduce to the world the next generation memory device structure.
Fortunately, our quest for knowledge and applying that to the real world has led us to develop some of the most efficient and time saving methodologies. To begin with we have introduced Micro Surface Treatment (M.S.T) designs and technology to smoothen the manufacturing process of nano-scale probe tips.
What makes the M.S.T. technology ahead of its time is its capacity to effectively and most accurately control the profile of the probe tip. In doing so, it doesn’t make use of the traditional methodology and goes ahead of the customary use of the nanoscale conductive metallic probe tips. This feature is unique to the company since it is widely successful in establishing a better form of specification for end users to analyze failure mechanisms in their advanced technology devices accurately and timely without any delay.
Another development that makes MESOSCOPE Technology stand out as unique from its counterparts is its recent qualification for 3nm technology failure analysis, with beforehand preparation of the CR3, CR2 and CR1 for future advanced technology failure analysis needed.
What are some of the leading products that your company manufactures?
MESOSCOPE Technology has been very specific in the kinds and types of products it manufactures right from the beginning. Here are three of those hallmark serial products that the company manufactures and tries to add some variation into.
● Nano-scale probe tips for devices characterize measurement.
● Provide Nano probing service for identifying the defect root cause.
● Nano probing system Representative.
What are the features of your nano-scale probe? What according to you makes you the leading manufacturer of the product in this industry?
With the challenges provided to us by the dimensions of submicron semiconductor devices and transistors, demarcating the causal factors that contribute to the reduction of the reliability and performance of the semiconductors. We focus on challenges like these and address more important points like the use of the VLSI technology.
With its small and minute features, it has made it especially difficult for us to explore some of the hidden and subtle defects that seriously hamper the yield of integrated circuits specifically in the nanometer generation codes .
Our NANO-Scale probe technology outlives all others that are present in the global market. Here are some of the features that we install in it that makes this possible:
For one, the primary fleeting aim of Mesoscope technology has always been a singular focus on its nano scale probe. We have never strived to drift away from this technology and this is one of the biggest reasons that makes us the leading proponents of manufacturing for this product.
Another reason is as we always say it, we believe in looking at the challenges that the future holds for us and engage with our complete dedication towards preparing a feasible solution for it. We like to be proactive in our approach and confront the problem before it has set in motion. As a result, MESOSCOPE keeps varied models ready at its disposal that can prove useful in undertaking the failure analysis process for at least the following two generations.
MESOSCOPE understands the difficulties and challenges that the traditional methods can provide, especially when it comes to the fabrication of nano probes. One of the most successful and comprehensive approaches in this regard is the M.S.T.(Micro Surface Treatment) module it developed with the aim to control apex profile, cleaning and treating the surface with high yield rate.
