thumbnailSPTS unveils low-temp PECVD cluster tool for 3D ICs
Via reveal occurs after the through-silicon vias (TSV) are formed -- wafers are temporarily bonded face-down to a carrier and thinned from the backside to reveal the vias, which are then passivated (typically with a combination of silicon nitride and ...
